via Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, The Flyers, who have lost five of their last six games, will try to get back on track Thursday night against offensive-challenged Buffalo at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Sabres are averaging just 2.36 goals per game. Only four teams have averaged fewer goals.
The Flyers have more losses than wins at home, where they have a head-scratching 13-9-5 record.
“I think it’s just a matter of getting back to basics and realizing how good we can be,” enforcer Jody Shelley said.
Shelley is expected to replace Zac Rinaldo, who will start a two-game, NHL-imposed suspension for a hit on Detroit’s Jonathan Ericsson
After missing three straight games because of the flu, Ilya Bryzgalov will return to the nets for the Flyers. In his last four games, Bryzgalov has allowed a total of just six goals.
