Schenn scores 2 goals, helps Flyers end skid with win over NHL-worst Sabres

PHILADELPHIA - Brayden Schenn scored two goals, and the Philadelphia Flyers broke a four-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.

Philadelphia maintained third place in the Metropolitan Division, two points ahead of Columbus, and won for the second time in eight games (2-4-2). With four games remaining, the Flyers trail the second-place New York Rangers by two points, but have a game in hand.

Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier and Zac Rinaldo scored second-period goals to put Philadelphia ahead 4-0. Matt Read also scored and Mark Streit had three assists.

Cory Hodgson and Mike Weber scored third-period goals for Buffalo, which lost its sixth straight road game and fell to 2-13-1 in its last 16 overall. The Sabres, assured of finishing with the fewest points in the NHL, have scored eight goals during their road skid.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
