Vincent Lecavalier ended a 13-game goal drought by beating a flopping Jhonas Enroth with just 14.8 seconds left in regulation for the game-winning goal. Scott Hartnell had a three-point performance in the victory and Wayne Simmonds provided a pair of assists, while Steve Mason recorded just 16 saves for the decision. Although he suffered the loss, Enroth did more than enough to win, as he provided a 29-save effort in a noteworthy performance for the …

Game 47 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Buffalo Sabres

Philadelphia Flyers (23-19-4) @ Buffalo Sabres (13-26-5), 7:30pm, NBCSN/CSN-Philly/TSN After a pair of rough contests over the weekend, the Philadelphia Flyers are hoping that they’ll be able to rebound tonight against the Buffalo Sabres.

Neither of the losses to the Tampa Bay Lightning or New York Rangers this past weekend could be described as pretty, but they weren’t losses that should cause this team to fold.

Flight Plan: Looking Upward and Onward

The Philadelphia Flyers won two of their three games last week. Their wins came against the New Jersey Devils in overtime and the Montreal Canadiens in regulation.
