It’s Over-Sabres Run Stopped by Flyers

Once again the Philadelphia Flyers have ended the Sabres season. Matt Read scored the game winner for Philadelphia, after a surprising miss check from Robyn Regher. Read came in on goaltender Ryan Miller with speed from the left side and roofed it over Miller’s glove giving them a 2-1 lead. Just down the road in Washington, the Capitals managed to hold off the Panthers 3-2 in regulation, officially ending the Sabres march from the bottom of the eastern conference. The Sabres played well, especially considering they were down three of their top 6 defenseman. They also failed to convert on several odd-man rushes which could have put the game away. Ville Leino had put the Sabres up 1-0 against his former team in the second, and that lead held up until late in the third period when Marc-Andre Bourdon ripped a slap shot past Miller. Read was stopped in the first period on a breakaway, which Miller had deftly poked away, but his wide angle breakaway with just 4:21 remaining had no chance of being stopped. The Sabres will close out the season on Saturday against Boston.
