The hit that Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis wasn’t a dirty or malicious one, even though it was from behind. The Buffalo Sabres forward was merely trying to turn and protect the puck, and he turned as Simmonds was hitting him. It was a bang-bang play and Simmonds didn’t have time to react. The referees were not going to call a penalty and so Mike Weber decided to go after Simmonds. Unfortunately for Weber, Simmonds was waiting for someone to come after him and had his gloves off faster than Weber did. After landing some big blows and getting Weber to drop to his knees, rather than continue throwing, Simmonds did the courteous thing and covered up Weber to end the tilt.

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has a sinus infection, meaning backup Jhonas Enroth will start against the New York Rangers.

Following practice on Tuesday afternoon, Ilya Bryzgalov spoke to the media. Bryz spoke about his playing time and how crucial these two games versus the Devils really are. He was very truthful to say if the Flyers have a chance after this home and home series with the Devils.
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...
The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
Well, there's another disappointing game from the Buffalo Sabres.
If we're going to have a horrible season, at least it's a shortened one. I don't know if I could go 82 games watching a team play like this.
I just shake my head every time I see the "power play" for Buffalo. It is absolutely horrendous. They can rarely get in the zone and get it set...
Coming off of three straight losses and, in my opinion, five straight dismal periods of play, there is a lot of work to be done by the struggling Flyers (11-14-1). Entering into tonight’s contest with Buffalo, who recently lost long-time head coach Lindy Ruff (9-13-3), the Flyers sit in the 11th Eastern Conference placeholder on [...]

NHLTags: Peter LavioletteThe term “statement week” was thrown around after the Philadelphia Flyers won their second game in a row against the Ottawa Senators.

The Buffalo Sabres are on life support, putting it mildly, when it comes to making the playoffs this year.
They entered the night just one point ahead of Florida for the lowest point total in the NHL, and seven points back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Needless to say, chances are ultra-slim,...
The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 last night, bring their season record to 12-14-1 and their record in the month of March to 2-3-0. With the team starved for wins and points -- and with the Flyers having played more games than any other club in the NHL -- they will gladly take the two points from last night.
However, the Flyers did little last night to inspire...
With 27 games played to date, the Philadelphia Flyers have played more games this season than any other team in the NHL. That is bad news when the team is already mired in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and is three points behind the eighth-ranked New York Rangers (who have played 24 games).
When a team that entered the season expecting to be playoff contenders has already...
