On Wednesday, the Flyers fell to the Sabres 5-2 at the Wells Fargo Center. A game in which the score tells a different story then the game played.
The Flyers and Sabres were tied 2-2 headed into the 3rd period before Buffalo scored three times – two goals and an empty net goal.
Much like most of their recent losses, the Flyers stuck with and somewhat outplayed the Sabres. Finishing with a 40-15 shot advantage. But, were only able to muster just two goals.
“Thought we started slow again. Gathered ourselves and I felt pretty good hockey game from that point on,” John Tortorella said. “We had 11/12 scoring chances in a 60 minute game… just haven’t found a way the past couple of games to get by that number 2 goal.”
