Sabres head coach Ted Nolan said after the game " In this league you can't give a little bit here and a little bit there. You have to play the same way all the time. We got outbattled and we got outworked and they got the two points."

Scott Hartnell had a goal and two assists, and Wayne Simmonds set up two goals in helping Philadelphia snap a two game

skid. Jakub Voracek also scored for the Flyers (24-19-4), who improved to 8-3 in their past 11 games.

Buffalo, which had an eight-game home pointstreak

snapped at 6-0-2. Tyler Ennis also scored and Steve Ott set up two for the Sabres (13-27-5).

Lecavalier's goal came during a scramble in the Sabres zone. Flyers forward Matt Read dug out a loose puck to the left of the Buffalo net and fed Lecavalier, who one-timed a shot from the left circle.
