The Philadelphia Flyers are gunning for a win at the Buffalo Sabres in Wednesday NHL action.
The Philadelphia Flyers have dropped three in a row after a 6-5 OT loss to visiting Tampa Bay on Friday. Travis Konecny led the Flyers with a pair of markers with James van Riemsdyk, Sean Couturier and Wayne Simmonds also lighting the lamp. Three players logged two assists while Calvin Pickard gave up all six goals on 26 shots for Philadelphia.
Tampa Bay received two goals from Brayden Point with Adam Erne, Cedric Paquette and Tyler Johnson scoring in regulation. Anthony Cirelli potted the winner in overtime and Louis Domunigue picked up the win for the Lightning despite allowing five goals on 45 shots.
The surging Buffalo Sabres have put together a six game winning streak after downing Pittsburgh 5-4 in OT on Monday. Derick Brassard, Phil Kessel, Jake Guentzel and Tanner Pearson scored for the Penguins for a 4-1 lead. Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist each had two assists and Casey DeSmith gave up five goals on 40 shots to salvage a point for Pittsburgh.
The Sabres scoring came off the sticks of Tage Thompson, Zach Bogosian, Casey Nelson and Casey Mittlestadt in regulation. Jack Eichel hit the winner just 45 seconds in to OT while Rasmus Ristolainen and Kyle Okposo added two helpers each to lift Buffalo and make a winner of Carter Hutton and his 36 saves.
