In Saturday night NHL action, the Buffalo Sabres will travel to the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia Flyers. This will be the second of a back-to-back for Buffalo, who received a goal from Jeff Skinner one minute and 50 seconds into overtime during a 3-2 home victory versus the New York Rangers. The Sabres (36-31-7) improved to 15-20-4 at home and are five points back in the race for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Buffalo got on the scoreboard first on J.J. Peterka's 11th goal of the season. Dylan Cozens (34) and Jack Quinn (21) tallied assists. The Sabres took a 2-0 lead seven minutes into the second period when Jordan Greenway found the back of the net. Buffalo was roughed up by New York 30-14 in the hit department. 

The Philadelphia Flyers have split their previous ten games and are on the verge of being eliminated from postseason contention. Looking forward to next season, the Flyers (29-32-13) need to improve an offense that has scored 2.70 goals per game and converted just 16 percent of power play opportunities. On Thursday, Philadelphia allowed a goal 96 into overtime during a 5-4 road loss against Ottawa.

Philadelphia trailed 4-1 early in the third period, when Cam York scored an unassisted goal to cut the lead to two. Noah Cates added a power play goal and Owen Tippet scored with less than three minutes remaining to force the extra session. The Flyers were outshot by an alarming 46-11 margin.
