Flyers Humbled by Buffalo

The Flyers were humbled by the Buffalo Sabres, 6-1. The Buffalo Sabres (1-2-0) provided the opposition in game three of the 2020-21 season in a matchup in South Philly. Buffalo (1-2-0) had struggled scoring goals with a total of five in two games.

If you follow me on Edge of Philly you will remember I pointed out the Flyers defense were giving up far too many shots to have hope of long-term success. Buffalo, even though early in the season was hungry for a win and threw a few wrinkles at the Orange and Black. Ad

Linus Ullmark, the Sabres usual starter, was a scratch and the mantle was handed to Carter Hutton. In the first period, Hutton had to take short skates to stay awake as team Philadelphia opened their offense? And unleashed all of four shots. Curtis Lazar made the twine dance behind Carter Hart to open the show.

Buffalo added three more in the middle stanza and chased Hart (22 shots, 18 saves) in the process. Team Flyers continued to sleep walk and fell behind, 5-0 before Nicolas Aube-Kubel got the home team on the board.

Victor Olafsson supplied the exclamation point to get Buffalo back in the hunt.

Blue Lines:

Buffalo rolled out a line of Taylor Hall, Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart… the trio accounted for 2 goals and 6 assists. The contest marked the first Sabres win in Philadelphia since March 5, 2011. It was the first time Curtis Lazar notched two goals in a game since, February 16, 2016.
