The Sabres Report - April 30, 2006
'The key play: Philly’s Brian Savage took a penalty for goaltender interference with less than a minute remaining in the second period and the Sabres ahead 1-0. Just 11 seconds later, Briere fed a nifty pass to J.P. Dumont to give Buffalo a 2-0 edge. Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock wouldn’t comment on the call, but did emphatically say “it was a major turning point in the game.”'
'"It was a pretty quick turnaround from the low to the high for me."'
‘Flyers forward Peter Forsberg had four goals and four assists in four games this series, but was held without a point for the first time. Forsberg and his linemates Simon Gagne and Mike Knuble were blanked on a combined seven shots on net.’
'game featured a very fast Sabres team that relentlessly attacked the Flyers, protected Miller and was relatively free of the mistakes and brain cramps that plagued the team in Philadelphia. Buffalo's power play which sputtered on the road racked up two huge goals to power Buffalo to the win.'
