Slap Shots: Flyers vs Sabres

We’re going streaking in South Philadelphia!

The Philadelphia Flyers were looking to make it nine-straight wins with a Saturday night matchup against the Buffalo Sabres.

The Orange and Black came out pretty sloppy in the first period. Carter Hart, who was strong all night, kept the game scoreless in the first period with a handful of big saves.

It was a big night for The Captain. Claude Giroux opened the scoring on a back-handed shot while falling backwards, but the lead wouldn’t last for long as Buffalo tied it before the second period came to a close.

In the third, the Flyers’ strongest period all season, they dominated. Giroux lit the lamp again - this time on a blast from the slot on a bouncing puck. Minutes later Joel Farabee, who hit a post earlier in the period, rushed down the ice and pressured Carter Hutton into misplaying the puck in the crease. Farabee jumped on the loose puck and put it in the back of the net to ice the game for the Flyers.

Hart made 38 saves on 39 shots and continued his extremely strong play at home this season. The Flyers return to action on Tuesday when they host the Boston Bruins.
