It was an ugly night for the Buffalo Sabres (33-29-6, 72 points) as they closed their three-game road trip with a 5-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers (25-32-11, 59 points) at the Wells Fargo Center.
Buffalo trailed 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes and 4-0 after two periods. Victor Olofsson provided all of the Sabres’ offense as he netted a pair of power-play goals in the third, his 25th and 26th of the season.
Craig Anderson stopped 17-of-22 shots but didn’t get much help in front of him.
The Sabres will begin a three-game homestand on Sunday when they host the Boston Bruins at 1 p.m.
