The last 2 weeks begin


At this point in the season, there are teams gearing up for the hunt for the playoffs, maybe a few teams still in the running making the final push, and teams with nothing more to play for but pride. . the Leaflets obviously fall into the latter category. Their opponent for the next two days does the same.

The Flyers start a home and away series against the bison sabers Saturday night on the road.

Game time is 7 p.m.

Bobby Brink has two NHL games under his belt. He got a power-play assist on Tuesday for his first NHL point, then was silenced like the rest of the team on Wednesday. Against the Sabres, he will face a younger team that could allow him to be much more noticeable.

Tagus Thompson prepare for the whole season. After surpassing eight goals and 14 points in the 2020-21 season, two career highs, he broke out for a career year with 33 goals and 27 assists for 60 points. He scored five goals in April in eight games.

Goalkeeper game 4-16

Martin Jones gets the start for the Flyers. Jones took over from Carter Hart Tuesday after injury and allowed six goals on 27 shots.

Craig Anderson should start for Buffalo. Buffalo will start both goaltenders this weekend and there’s a chance Anderson will be pushed to tomorrow, but expect him to get the first shot for now. Anderson allowed five goals on 27 shots in a loss to St. Louis on Thursday but got off to a strong start against Toronto on Tuesday by making 24 saves on 26 shots in a win.
