BUFFALO, N.Y. - Chris VandeVelde scored a third-period breakaway goal to help the Philadelphia Flyers snap a six-game road losing streak and send the Sabres to their 10th straight regulation defeat with a 4-3 victory at Buffalo on Saturday night.

R.J. Umberger and Mark Streit scored power-play goals, and Mike Raffl also scored for Philadelphia, which won its fourth straight against the Sabres.

Zemgus Girgensons scored two goals, and Tyler Ennis added one for Buffalo, which became the first team since the 2006 Pittsburgh Penguins to lose 10 consecutive games in regulation, according to STATS.

The skid is two shy of Buffalo's worst, set in 1991 and matched in 2002.
