Sabres fall to Philly, 4-1

Myers scores for Buffalo in third straight loss

PHILADELPHIA —

PHILADELPHIA — Matt Read scored a pair of goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to their fifth win in six games, 4-1 over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
 
Vincent Lecavalier also scored and Scott Hartnell added an empty-net goal for the Flyers, who set a season-high with 46 shots.
 
Read's goals came 1:40 apart late in the second period. Steve Downie and Sean Couturier assisted on both tallies for Philadelphia (9-10-2), which outshot Buffalo 46-30.
 
Tyler Myers netted the lone goal for Buffalo, which is 1-3 under interim coach Ted Nolan and an NHL-worst 5-18-1 this season.
 
The game was the first between two First Nations head coaches. Nolan is Ojibwe, and from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Flyers coach Craig Berube is part-Cree and from Calahoo, Alberta.
 
Myers beat Ray Emery from close range in the first period to stake Buffalo to a 1-0 lead. But Read tied it with a one-timer from the slot with 6:51 left in the second.
 
Read gave Philadelphia a one-goal advantage by deking goalie Ryan Miller, while all alone in front of the crease, and putting a highlight-reel shot into the top of the net with 4:11 remaining in the period.
 
Lecavalier's one-timed slap shot from the right circle midway through the third to make it 3-1.
 
Ville Leino and Tyler Ennis had assists for Buffalo, which has lost three straight.
