Claude Giroux scored his eighth goal of the season just 17 seconds into the second period of the Flyers' 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
It was the easiest of opponents the Flyers would face this week, but they still didn't make it look easy.
Despite dominating much of the early play, the Flyers had to constantly fight off the Sabres. Buffalo proved to be a tough test. But the Flyers ultimately showed that the season is far from over by securing two very important points and snapping a three-game losing streak, beating the Sabres, 3-2.
The Flyers opened the scoring just 4:31 into the first. Simon Gagne took a brilliant pass from Kimmo Timonen in on Ryan Miller and beat him through the five-hole to give the Flyers the early lead. It was Gagne's second goal of the season.
Four minutes later at the 8:47 mark, the Flyers scored shorthanded as Max Talbot completed a nice two-on-one rush with Ruslan Fedotenko by getting his second goal of the season.
