Flyers Vs. Sabres Final Score: Philadelphia Routs Buffalo, 7-2

Right-winger Wayne Simmonds and center Maxime Talbot each tallied two goals to help the Philadelphia Flyers rout the visiting Buffalo Sabres, 7-2, at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday. The Flyers (32-18-7, 71 points) snapped a two-game losing streak, while the Sabres (24-27-6, 54 points) extended their to three.

Trailing 2-0 after the first period, Philadelphia scored seven unanswered goals including two from Simmonds in the second period that ended with Philly up 4-2. Tolbot scored the first of three goals for the Flyers in the third period, as Jakub Voracek and Scott Hartnell capped the game's scoring, respectively.

Starting goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves to end a personal three-game losing skid. Sabres backup goaltender, Jhonas Enroth, earned the start but lasted just 26 minutes, 49 seconds before being pulled for Buffalo's usual starting goaltender, Ryan Miller, early in the second period.

Philly's forward Jaromir Jagr turned 40-years-old Thursday, but did not play because of fly-like symptoms.

Earlier in the day, the Flyers acquiried defenseman Nicklas Grossman from the Dallas Stars for two draft picks; a 2012 second-rounder, and a 2013 third-rounder.
