Sabres goalie Lehner ill; Nilsson to start at Philadelphia

Then he heard the Flyers' goal horn, loud enough to be installed on a cruise ship.

"Expect to win." Please let me know when we're going to start.

Dmitry Kulikov crushed Voracek with an open-ice hit that sent him to the ice and knocked his helmet off.

Then, inexplicably, Bylsma's Sabres lost theie ability to play with a two goal lead in the third period of a game where their opponent had played a hard road game the night before.

Mason stopped eight shots and two more in the shootout. It looked to me like Kulikov made first contact with Voracek's chest or shoulder area. "Especially for the fans. I saw a few empty seats with four or five minutes left".

This game had a Philadelphia Flyers loss written all over it entering the third period of play.

Kulikov and the Sabres played with fire and got burned. "Don't tell him I said that", Giroux said. The Flyers really started to ramp up the energy after that.

Another issue, which was supposed to be a strength this season, was goaltending.

Just prior to the end of the second stanza, Moulson fired a quick, low shot that beat Neuvirth for the third goal of the game.

City started with Sergio Aguero in attack, following his surprise omission at the Nou Camp, and looked all the more risky for it. The City boss said that he had only had one training session before Tuesday's game but told him he was ready if needed.


For one period the Flyers had held the Sabres at bay, actually outshooting them 11-8.

Interestingly, the Sabres won both games in Philadelphia last season, but of course this is a new campaign.

It wasn't until the third period, after Travis Konecny had scored his first National Hockey League goal, that the Flyers looked like they had much jump at all.

Anders Nilsson made 41 saves in the loss. But at the same time, you can't really dwell on it because coming into to tomorrow night, you don't want it to snowball into something more negative. He did both of those things on a play in the first period against Calgary last Tuesday, when he rimmed a pass along the boards to begin the breakout and then rushed down the ice, got the puck back in the offensive zone and delivered a flawless pass across through the defense to hit Zemgus Girgensons for a wide-open scoring opportunity. He will skate between left winger Tyler Ennis and right winger Zemgus Girgensons. Moulson's power-play past Neuvirth made it 2-0 and started the boos at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers spent most of the rest of the period taking penalties and watching Moulson make them pay.

A third tally ended Neuvirth's night with 4:17 left on the clock in the period when Moulson flubbed a shot on net and it went between Neuvirth's right pad and the post. "It's part of the business", Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said.

That was all for starting goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who had to be relieved by Steve Mason. "I think we can't forget it". "Pretty low probability of it being successful".

The hit forced Voracek to visit the quiet room and recharged the exhausted Flyers who played in Montreal on Monday night while the Sabres chilled at the hotel. A long video review confirmed that the goal was good and this game was tied 3-3. "It's not what you want to see to one of your best players".

"It's a huge win for us".
