Buffalo Sabres Blow Late Lead to Lose to Philadelphia Flyers

Jhonas Enroth can't complain about lack of goal support after the Sabres provided two leads for the netminder, and even scored a late goal to tie the game, but that didn't stop the Philadelphia Flyers from coming away with a 4-3 win.

Enroth wasn't very sharp, as he flopped around the crease too many times. He ended up making a couple of impressive saves, but his flopping allowed the Flyers to score the game-winning goal with 14.8 seconds to go in the game. 

Steve Ott played an impressive game for the Sabres, as he provided energy for his team with a couple of body checks, and also added two assists. Tyler Ennis scored his second goal in two games and Cody Hodgson also found the goal sheet after providing a shootout winner Sunday.

This game, however, falls squarely on Enroth. He was quick to bash the team in front of him after losing to the Panthers Thursday in a shootout. His remarks about the Sabres not being able to score were accurate, but tonight was a different story. The Sabres scored three goals, two of which gave them a lead and one tied the game late, which probably should've sent the game to overtime. Instead, Enroth found himself scrambled in his own net, and allowed the Flyers to take the game.

The Sabres will play the Maple Leafs tomorrow night in Toronto, and will probably have Ryan Miller back in net, which Sabres fans should be thankful for after tonight's debacle. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 tomorrow.
