It’s been a while since a Buffalo Sabres – Philadelphia Flyers game had this much on the line in early March.
Now, it remains to be seen if either team has a chance to make a genuine playoff push (the odds are stacked especially high against Buffalo), but both squads can at least ponder such a possibility as of Tuesday. Winning this one would be another step in making that dream a more feasible goal.
The Flyers lost their last game while the Sabres have dropped their previous two, so each team also wants to get back on the winning track.
