The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in a shootout on Thursday night. Nicolas Deslauriers and Brian Gionta found the back of the net with the shootout winner going to Brian Flynn. The Sabres continue to play in tight games and are coming out with points, but they are still far enough behind Edmonton that no fans should worry. The season has reached a point that fans can start rooting for wins yet again. It’s much more fun that way, and of course rooting for Edmonton to win games can be included. The Sabres play tonight when they host the New York Rangers with current goaltending problems.
