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 don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
