May 14, 1995 -- In Game 5 at Philly, Eric Lindros (1-2-3) had points on the first three goals leading the Flyers to a series-clinching 6-4 home win. Rod Brind'Amour's PPG started the scoring 4:30 into the game. Kevin Haller made it 2-0 on a crafty pass by Lindros. The Flyers scored twice in the last 2:15 of the opening period, goals by Lindros and Patrick Juhlin within 19 seconds, to expand the lead to 4-0 aided by a dominating 19-5 shots advantage. In the second period, John LeClair made it 5-0 before consecutive goals by Wayne Presley (2-1-3), including a SHG with nine seconds left, made it 5-2. Alexander Mogilny made it 5-3 with seven minutes left in regulation. Ron Hextall had 28 saves and assisted on Kevin Dineen's goal which made it 6-3 with 4:20 remaining. Buffalo held a 23-11 shots advantage covering the last two periods. Afterwards, Sabres' coach John Muckler said of Lindros "He is awesome. He is the best player in the world."

2010-11 Regular Season and Playoffs:
  • October 26, 2010 -- Sergei Bobrovsky made 32 saves and the struggling Flyers' powerplay netted a goal in each period leading the Flyers to a 6-3 home win. The Flyers' PP, which entered this game 3-for-35, went 3-for-5. Jeff Carter (1-2-3), Claude Giroux (1-1-2) and Danny Briere (1-1-2) led the offense. Nikolay Zherdev, Darroll Powe and Giroux scored second period goals to give Philly a 4-1 lead. The Flyers responded to a poor performance the prior night in Columbus and outhit the Sabres 24-12. Buffalo led 1-0 and 21 seconds later Sean O'Donnell and Cody McCormick fought ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfb6BV898Vg ) in what Peter Laviolette later called the game's momentum-changer. Prior to the game, the Flyers presented the family of Barry Ashbee with his retired jersey banner that was raised in the Spectrum. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A3e1rLIWlw
  • January 11, 2011 -- Sergei Bobrovsky made 38 saves, including 26-for-26 over the last two periods, and the Flyers scored three times in the last period to rally from an early 2-0 deficit to win 5-2 in Buffalo. Danny Briere (1-3-4), perhaps unexpectedly not chosen earlier in the day for the NHL's All-Star Game, and Scott Hartnell (2-1-3) led the offense. The line of Briere, Hartnell and Ville Leino (4-4-8) had eight points. The Sabres led 2-0 less than 10 minutes into the game but the Flyers rally began with Hartnell's PPG in the first period and Briere's second period goal made it 2-2. Leino, Mike Richards and Hartnell added third period goals. Video of disallowed goal ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUGc5gn4wHs ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm56XWWyuOY

  • March 5, 2011 -- Ryan Miller made 33 saves and Jason Pominville (1-1-2) snapped a third period tie in Buffalo's 5-3 win at Philly. Six Sabres had two points apiece. The Flyers led 2-0 after the first period and killed a 5-on-3 that lasted 1:10. The Sabres took a 3-2 lead in the second period before Kimmo Timonen's 100th career goal, a SHG, tied the score. Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves.
  • April 8, 2011 -- Thomas Vanek's (1-2-3) goal 1:16 into OT gave Buffalo a 4-3 home win. Nathan Gerbe (2-0-2) tied the game 3-3 in the middle of the third period and less than a minute after the Sabres killed the Flyers' first PP attempt. Ryan Miller (8 saves, 8 shots) replaced Jhonas Enroth (16 saves, 19 shots) after the second period. Danny Briere (1-1-2) and Scott Hartnell (1-1-2) led the Flyers.

  • April 16, 2011 -- In Game 2 of the ECQF, James van Riemsdyk earned top star honors, for the second straight game, and Ville Leino's PPG snapped a 3-3 tie in Philly's 5-4 home win. Brian Boucher (20 saves, 21 shots) replaced Sergei Bobrovsky (4 saves, 7 shots) with the Sabres leading 3-2 in the first period. Buffalo's PP was 2-for-8, with Thomas Vanek (2-0-2) scoring both goals in the first ten minutes of the opening period, while the Flyers went 1-for-10 in a game that had 22 minors and one fight (Scott Hartnell vs. Paul Gaustad two seconds after the Sabres tied the score 1-1). Danny Briere made it 5-3 less than two minutes after Leino's tie-breaker. Ryan Miller made 29 saves. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkmBdN0eawE

  • April 18, 2011 -- In Game 3 of the ECQF, Brian Boucher made 35 saves and Jeff Carter, Danny Briere and Nikolay Zherdev scored off Ryan Miller (22 saves) in the Flyers' 4-2 win at Buffalo. Zherdev's goal, off a perfect feed from Mike Richards, made it 3-1 and he earned top star honors. Kimmo Timonen added an ENG. The Sabres held a 37-26 shots advantage including 16-6 in the first period. Scott Hartnell was called for two simultaneous minors in the first period but the Sabres did not score. Buffalo held a two-man advantage for 1:15 in the third period but couldn't beat Boucher. Sergei Bobrovsky, who started Game 1, was a healthy scratch. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMv1r8ec8bk .

  • April 20, 2011 -- In Game 4 of the ECQF, Jason Pominville scored 9:38 into the game and Ryan Miller, who teammate Chris Butler later said "was absolutely phenomenal," made 32 saves in Buffalo's 1-0 home win. Miller said of recent critics "I'm happy that I helped the team get a win. I'm not going to pay too much attention to anybody who's talking about my game right now. I really don't care." Miller was the game's top star while Brian Boucher, who made 28 saves, was selected the number two star. Mike Richards received a 5-minute elbowing major for elbowing Patrick Kaleta with three seconds left in the second period. Jeff Carter suffered a knee injury and missed the rest of the series. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT6ductZMR8
  • April 22, 2011 -- In Game 5 of the ECQF, Tyler Ennis scored 5:31 into OT to give Buffalo a 4-3 win at Philly. Ennis also gave the Sabres a 1-0 lead and earned the game's top star. The Sabres led 2-0 3:51 into the game and 3-0 after one period but Danny Briere's goal tied the score in the third period. Brian Boucher (8 saves, 11 shots), who surrendered two soft goals in a span of 87 seconds, was replaced by Michael Leighton (20 saves, 21 shots) who started just one regular season game. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6xVa-MWTf0 .
  • April 24, 2011 -- In Game 6 of the ECQF, Ville Leino's goal 4:43 into OT gave the Flyers a come-from-behind 5-4 win in Buffalo. The Sabres led 2-0 8:41 into the game and 3-1 after the first period. Danny Briere (2-0-2), who was chosen the game's #2 star, later said "I've been through some pretty wild and crazy games through my career... my heart definitely skipped a few beats today," tied the game 3-3 in the second period. Nathan Gerbe's go-ahead goal gave the Sabres a 4-3 lead which they held through two periods. Scott Hartnell tied the game 4-4 midway in the third period, four seconds after the Sabres killed a penalty. The Flyers held a 49-33 shots advantage, including ten by JVR, and dominated 18-7 in the third period and OT. Michael Leighton (5 saves, 8 shots) became the third Flyers' starter pulled from a game in this series and Brian Boucher (24 saves, 25 shots) was terrific in relief. Ryan Miller made 45 saves in the loss. Thomas Vanek (2-0-2) and Tyler Myers (0-3-3) led the Sabres. Chris Pronger saw limited PT as he returned to the Flyers' lineup after missing 21 games with a hand injury. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xDKW_Kw974

  • April 26, 2011 -- In Game 7 of the ECQF, Brian Boucher made 26 saves and two PPGs in the second period helped the Flyers to a series-clinching 5-2 win. The Flyers dominated the opening period with a 16-2 shot advantage and Braydon Coburn's goal, off a misdirection by Mike Grier, with 19 seconds left snapped the scoreless tie. Danny Briere (1-1-2), the game's #1 star aided by two key faceoff wins which led to the first two goals, and James van Riemsdyk scored PPGs which gave Philly a 3-0 lead in the middle period. Dan Carcillo made it 5-1 midway in the third but was ejected 1:42 later. Ryan Miller (24 saves, 28 shots) was replaced by Jhonas Enroth (7 saves, 8 shots). Derek Roy returned to Buffalo's lineup for his first game since December 23. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU00R9AuBqE SERIES RECAP: Claude Giroux (1-8-9) and Danny Briere (6-1-7) led the offense and James van Riemsdyk (4-0-4) added four goals. Kimmo Timonen was a series best +9. Brian Boucher, who said "It was a crazy series," had a 2.10 GAA and a save percentage of .934 in six games. The Sabres were led by Marc-Andre Gragnani (1-6-7), Tyler Myers (1-5-6) and Thomas Vanek (5-0-5) but Vanek had a series-worst -7. Ryan Miller had a 2.93 GAA and a save percentage of .917. The Flyers' PP was 5-for-35 (14.3) including 2-for-26 through the first five games. Buffalo's PP was 7-for-31 (22.6). The Flyers became the first team to win a PO series by starting three different goaltenders since Detroit beat Toronto in 1988. This was the first series in Flyers' history in which three goalies started, the first time any NHL did so since Vancouver vs. Calgary in 2004. This was the first time in nine Flyers-Sabres' PO series that the Game One winner lost the series. Philly won a PO series after trailing 3-2 for the third time in team history.

2011-12 Regular Season:
  • November 2, 2011 -- The Flyers scored three early goals and held on for a 3-2 win at Buffalo. Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves including two keys stops in the game's final 16 seconds off Thomas Vanek. Goals by Sean Couturier and James van Riemsdyk gave Philly a 2-0 lead at the 1:56 mark. Scott Hartnell added his 10th point (5-5-10) in his last five games when he made it 3-0 at 6:23. The 3-0 start was the 16th quickest in team history. Ryan Miller (8 saves, 11 shots) was replaced by Jhonas Enroth (15 saves, 15 shots) after the third goal. Buffalo's PP was 0-for-5. Patrick Kaleta was suspended four games for head-butting Jakub Voracek ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MksKhL_hvIk ). Brayden Coburn and Mike Weber fought ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmJBXpVt-Tw ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwmtyQ-Vbd0
  • December 7, 2011 -- Claude Giroux's (1-3-4) breakway goal 2:37 into OT gave Philly a 5-4 win at Buffalo ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WZThhGpASI ). For the first time in team annals, Philly successfully rallied from consecutive 3-goal deficits and it was the third time the Flyers overcame two 3-goal deficits in the same season (also 1979-80 and 1991-92). Buffalo led 3-0 at the 19:37 mark but Max Talbot scored with 1.5 seconds remaining in the first period. Zac Rinaldo and Corey Tropp fought on the ensuing faceoff ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40gHYBf_xWA 0 ). Matt Read, Scott Hartnell and Jaromir Jagr scored in the second period. Drew Stafford tied the game with 1:35 left in regulation. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFpwjCVuJpI
  • February 16, 2012 -- The Flyers rallied from a 2-goal deficit to blast Buffalo 7-2 in Philadelphia. The Sabres led 2-0 9:30 into the first period but the Flyers scored four times in the second period and three more in the third period. Claude Giroux (0-5-5), one assist shy of tying the team-record, Scott Hartnell (1-3-4), Wayne Simmons (2-0-2) , who was injured during warmups and picked up 25 stitches in and around his mouth, and Max Talbot (2-0-2) led the offense. Simmons scored two PPGs in a span of 3:17 that put Philly on top 3-2 by the 6:49 mark of the second period. Ilya Bryzgalov made 27 saves. Jhonas Enroth (15 saves, 18 shots) was replaced by Ryan Miller (13 saves, 17 shots). The Flyers, already absent Chris Pronger, Jaromir Jagr, Andres Meszaros and James van Riemsdyk among others, lost the services of Danny Briere and Tom Sestito. Sestito fought Zack Kassian ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfuU_bay0kE ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2rqVgG6LBg

Let's do winning things!

At least we know Leino won't be scoring on us. And great GDT!

Nothing like playing the awful Sabres to get your confidence back

RevUpThoseGolfCarts 02-15-2012 12:14 PM

No way we should lose here. I expect a great game from Bryz.

Me and my dad make trips to Philly every once in a while and we have scheduled a visit for tomorrow's game, the Saturday game and the carnival.

Of course I didnt even think to check my passport until this morning, only to discover that it expired 2 weeks ago. Thankfully, I got everything sorted out (not without my wallet taking a hit) and got an express service on my passport so I could get a new one by the end of today.

Just picked it up, and I'm officially pumped.

Hitting the road bright and early at 6am tomorrow

Please win!!

Would love a win... but I don't know.

Enjoy! As a fellow Canadian/Ontarian fan, I am jealous! Only been down once and want to go back!

It marked the ninth time in nine PO meetings that the team which was victorious in the first game went on to win the series
MSE, that quote is in the series recap for the 2011 Flyers Sabres playoff series. That can't be right can it since the Flyers lost game one but won the series? Correct me of I'm wrong please.

Error: MSE. I changed the line. It should be first time that the Game One winner lost the series.

Isn't this how it started with HAL 9000? Will I be asking you to open the pod bay doors shortly? :sarcasm:

It was an intentional off-side on my part. Intentional to see if anyone reads the info.

Well, if you send one of us outside to investigate the quote feature next time it "breaks," I'm going to insist that Hollywood goes first.

Time to bounce back! If we lose this one the next games will be ugly.

Hockeypete49 02-15-2012 05:11 PM
