The Philadelphia Flyers came out flat and lost 4-1 in Buffalo on Tuesday night.
Brandon Manning tried to set the tone early, but ended up being more of a punching bag.
Nicolas Deslauriers was fired up.
Andrew MacDonald had a poor game, which we should’ve seen coming after this play early.
Claude Giroux got to the net to draw a penalty in the first period.
Unfortunately they couldn’t convert.
Sean Couturier tried to get something going early in the second period with a slick move.
Look at that glorious beard.
Steve Mason then made a fantastic kick save.
But then an unmarked forward made it 1-0 Sabres.
And then again, 2-0 Sabres.
Radko Gudas enjoyed watching his fearless play on the bench.
Voracek continued his great play with some nice moves.
Then the dagger came with just seconds remaining in the second period.
Set up by this MacDonald Turnover.
At least we have this guy.
And these dance moves.
The Flyers will return home on Thursday night against the Vancouver Canucks
