Lecavalier beats Enroth in final seconds, Flyers edge out Sabres 4-3

It wasn’t pretty, but the Philadelphia Flyers did manage to pull out a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres tonight at the First Niagara Center. 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. Tonight should equate to a win for the Orange and Black, but a loss could put the Flyers in a World of hurt. 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. If it wasn’t for one of Steve Mason’s worst starts of …

Lecavalier Warmups

Is Lecavalier proving to be a hindrance to his linemates?

When the Philadelphia Flyers signed Vincent Lecavalier to a five year, $4.5 million per year (cap hit) contract, after Tampa Bay exercised one of their two compliance buyouts, most Flyers fans were ecstatic. I initially didn’t really understand the acquisition, but felt that the contract was good value (especially considering some of the comparable free agent deals from this past summer). However, 47 games into the season, I can’t help but wonder if Lecavalier is shaping up to be a disappointment. He’s already dealt with a pretty serious injury, and since his return has a measly four points in eleven …

Lundqvist shines in Rangers’ win over Flyers

A slow start paired with Henrik Lundqvist producing a great game for the opposition led to the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers tonight. The Blueshirts’ goaltender had a 37-save effort, while Chris Kreider produced a two-point performance with a goal and an assist. Rick Nash and Daniel Carcillo also scored for New York, as the Flyers failed to produce a point in the standings for a second straight game. The score may not show it, but the Flyers did show up tonight in the first period. After the Orange and Black fell behind by two goals, …
