SABRES VS. FLYERS - GAME FIVE - WELLS FARGO CENTER - PHILADELHIA, PA

FIRST PERIOD

17:36 - BUFFALO GOAL - TYLER ENNIS (UNASSISTED) 1-0 BUFFALO - Ennis fights off a check in the far corner and scores from a sharp angle.   Boucher clearly should have made the save but appeared to have misplayed the puck between his pads.

16:09 - BUFFALO GOAL - THOMAS VANEK (GAUSTAD, KALETA) 2-0 BUFFALO -  Kaleta makes a nice play fighting for the puck behind the net to get it to Vanek who scores from below the goal line banking it off Boucher's left pad and in.   Boucher didn't have the post sealed off allowing a second soft goal early in the game.

11:10 - Flyers penalty - Andrej Meszaros 2:00 for tripping.

8:17 - Sabres penalty - Steve Montador 2:00 for high sticking.

6:14 - Matching penalties - Flyers Mike Richards for slashing, Sabres Butler 2:00 for roughing.

5:10 - Flyers penalty - Danny Briere - 2:00 for goaltender interference.

4:24 - BUFFALO PPG - MARC-ANDRE GRAGNANI (MYERS, POMINVILLE) - With Briere in the box for taking a shot at Miller, the Sabres make the Flyers pay on a 4-on-3 advantage.

CHANGE IN GOAL - MICHAEL LEIGHTON ENTERS GAME FOR FLYERS.

End of the first period - 3-0 Buffalo - SOG: 13-9 in favor of Sabres.

15:30 - Buffao penalty - Rob Niedermayer 2:00 for delay of game.

11:48 - PHILADELPHIA GOAL - JAMES VAN RIEMSDYK (MESZAROS, GIROUX) 3-1 SABRES - Van Riemsdyk scores on a Ryan Miller in tight.   I thought the play should have been called offside earlier.
