After going 0-2-2 in the four games following a 10-game winning streak Womens Josh Bailey Jersey , the Buffalo Sabres have had a chance to take a break from games the past three days It also meant they could get in a couple practices, which were limited during their recent cramped schedule.In their first-game since an overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, which followed a loss to the Predators in Nashville the night before, the Sabres will play host to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon.Article continues below ...The Tuesday game marked the completion of a stretch of 11 games in 19 days for Buffalo.“A lot of times you lose practice time and we understand that,” Sabres left winger Conor Sheary told the Buffalo News Friday after the Sabres completed their first back-to-back practice days since mid-November. “So, when you get these kind of days here, you want to take advantage of them, really work on your special teams and your five-on-five play and get better at them. It’s definitely good for us.”“It’s been refreshing,” Buffalo defenseman Zach Bogosian said. “It’s good to see a little slowdown of pace in the schedule. It doesn’t mean the games are going to be any less intense but it’s nice to get a few days between games and throw a day off in there too.”The Sabres defeated the Flyers 5-2 Nov. 21 at home.Buffalo (17-8-4) will be without goaltender Carter Hutton for the game Saturday. He is out with an upper-body injury.The injury apparently came during the 2-1 loss in Nashville.Scott Wedgewood has been called up from Rochester of the American Hockey League to serve as Linus Ullmark’s backup on Saturday.“We’re just being cautious with it, giving him a maintenance day yesterday,” Housley said. “He’s still day to day and he hasn’t really skated. We want to get him a practice or some ice before (he returns to the lineup).” The Flyers will be starting a five-game road trip in Buffalo.They recalled forward Phil Varone from Lehigh Valley of the AHL for the opener of the trip. He is leading the Phantoms with 17 assists and has 11 goals in 22 games. The 28 points rank him second in the AHL. Varone has scored seven goals and added five assists in his past nine games.The Flyers (11-12-3) are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center after Travis Sanheim scored twice in the third period for Philadelphia to tie the game. The Flyers are 2-5-2 in their past nine games.“It’s disappointing the way it ended Mathew Barzal Jersey ,” Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol said. “That’s a hard way to lose the extra point.”The Flyers hope to change their fortunes on their trip. They are 6-5-1 on the road this season, compared to 5-7-2 at home.“What the exact science is, I don’t know,” Hakstol said. “But for the most part, everybody’s rink is pretty similar. And for a team on the road your live is pretty simplified. It’s about your teammates and hockey.”“It’s nice to play on the road,” Flyers center Scott Laughton said. “You just play hockey. You don’t have any other worries. It’s good for team building, too. It brings you closer. Lots of dinners and stuff like that. Lots of hanging out.”The Flyers are hoping that the upcoming trip works out as well as a similar one did last December. It turned their season around and they had the fifth-best record in the NHL from that point and made the playoffs.“You ask any team, they love getting out on the road together,” Hakstol said. “It simplifies life a little bit. It’s always a good chance for the team to be around each other, to hang out and you always get a little bit tighter when you go through some of the challenges on the road. It’s about your teammates and hockey.” NEW YORK — A month ago, the New York Rangers visited the Philadelphia Flyers and played one of their worst games of the season. The dismal showing ended nearly a month of strong play and sent the Rangers into their current mediocre play.Since the last meeting http://www.islandersfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-leddy-jersey , neither team has racked up wins on a consistent basis and the division rivals will be seeking to rebound from tough losses Sunday night when the Flyers visit the Rangers.On Nov. 23, the Flyers began the season series by getting 31 saves from Calvin Pickard and three assists from Claude Giroux in a 4-0 win. Those showings helped Philadelphia reach NHL .500 at 10-10-2, but since then the Flyers are 4-5-2 in their last 11 games.Article continues below ...After Philadelphia was outscored 9-2 in Edmonton and Vancouver last weekend, coach Dave Hakstol was shown the door and replaced by Scott Gordon.Philadelphia won its first two games under Gordon by one goal over Detroit and Nashville but fell short in a 4-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday afternoon.Carter Hart made his third straight start but struggled for the first time by being unable to control rebounds while allowing four goals on 19 shots.The Flyers lost for the first time under Gordon on a day when they had 37 shots on goal.“As I said to the players after the game, with the exception of the plays on the goals, we played a game where we certainly had our fair share of chances, we limited the amount of opportunities,” Gordon said. “We should go to New York feeling confident about our game. I think we’ve had a level of consistency in the three games to know that we’re starting to build some momentum as to how we want to play.”James Van Riemsdyk had a goal and assist, and Phil Varone and Sean Courtier also scored for the Flyers, who open a five-game trip trying to halt a four-game road losing streak.“If we play a lot more games like that, we’ll win more than we lose Womens Wayne Simmonds Jersey ,” Varone said.The Rangers entered the first meeting during a 9-3-1 surge. The loss in Philadelphia started 3-6-4 slide that has seen New York allow 47 goals.New York’s slump continued with a 5-3 loss Saturday night in a visit to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Rangers headed into the third period in a 1-1 tie but allowed two goals in the first 5:26 of the third. Despite getting within one goal twice, it was not enough.“I love that we battled back, didn’t quit,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “There are certainly a lot of good things out of tonight, but there’s certainly things we need to improve on.”Kevin Hayes scored twice in the third period and remained hot with six goals and six assists during a six-game points streak. He also has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in his last 11 games and 26 points (nine goals, 17 assists) in his last 22.Saturday was the sixth time the Rangers allowed at least five goals and they head into the second meeting looking to clean up some things defensively.Henrik Lundqvist will likely be in the net after backup Alexandar Georgiev allowed all five goals.Lundqvist turned in one of his worst games of the season against the Flyers in the first meeting and enters with 441 career wins, four from tying Terry Sawchuk for sixth on the NHL’s career wins list.Philadelphia has won the last four meetings since a 5-1 loss on Jan. 16 in New York. In those four wins, the Flyers have scored 20 times, but the Rangers also are 13-3 in the last 16 home meetings.
