Sabres Not Ready To Play In Loss To Flyers

It was a night where nothing went the way of the Buffalo Sabres.  The Philadelphia Flyers came out determined to end a 3-game losing streak and like so many other teams have this season they did it at the expense of the Sabres 3-2.

The Sabres just didn’t look ready to play and quickly found themselves behind 2-0 on a power play goal and one shorthanded.  The Sabres got close, but never recovered.

They also lost forward Tyler Ennis when he was smashed into the boards and never returned.  The play went unpenalized and when defenseman Mike Weber took issue with it he lost the fight and ended up in the penalty box for instigating.

The Sabres made a steady parade to the penalty box giving the Flyers six power play chances to just three for the Sabres.  The Flyers connected twice with the man advantage while the Sabres struggled to just get into the Flyers’ zone.

So the Sabres come up with just two of a possible eight points on the four-game road trip.  They’re back home Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.
