Giroux, Gagne score to help Flyers top Sabres 3-2 and snap 3-game losing streak

PHILADELPHIA - Claude Giroux, Simon Gagne and Max Talbot all scored to help the Philadelphia Flyers snap a three-game losing streak and beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Sunday night.

Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 18 shots for the Flyers (12-14-1), who are still on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

They are ahead of the Sabres, who are buried in last place in the Northeast Division and have lost four straight. Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored for Buffalo.

With both teams struggling, tempers were short. Buffalo's Mike Weber slugged it out with Wayne Simmonds, and Sabres centre Steve Ott threw a punch at Kimmo Timonen.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
