Throw some confetti and pump your fists. The Buffalo Sabres have won for the first time since February 23, ending a streak of futility nearly unmatched in NHL history.
The Sabres defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 6-1 on Wednesday to end their losing streak at 18 games. It’s tied for the the longest losing streak in NHL history with the 2003-04 Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Sabres jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period after goals by Sam Reinhart and Curtis Lazar.
The Flyers’ Ivan Provorov scored 3:50 into the second period to narrow the Sabres’ lead by one. But then… it happened. Buffalo poured it on and scored 4 (!) unanswered goals to win 6-1.
Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott gave up four goals on 16 shots before being pulled for Alex Lyon late in the second period. Lyon fared better stopping nine of 10 shots.
