(Sports Network) - The Buffalo Sabres try to move their sizzling start to 6-0 tonight when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to HSBC Arena.

With a win the Sabres would come closer the team record for consecutive wins to start a season. The mark of eight was set in 1975-76.

The Sabres, who have won their last 10 regular-season games dating to last season, are coming off Saturday's 7-4 win over the visiting NY Rangers. Chris Drury recorded his first career hat trick and added an assist to lead the effort.

Daniel Briere had a goal and two assists and Maxim Afinogenov added a goal and an assist for the Sabres, while goaltender Ryan Miller made 19 saves. Buffalo won the match despite falling behind 2-0 in the first period.

The status of Saturday's game was in question until the morning, as the Buffalo area was still recovering from the nearly two feet of wet snow that fell on Thursday. Many homes and businesses were left without power because the heavy snow brought down power lines.

Buffalo, which is the lone unbeaten club in the Eastern Conference, will host Carolina on Friday.

Don't wanna jinx the Sabres, but unless Hitch has managed to speed up his Phlyers ... 6 - 0 looks mighty probable. :rolleyes:

yea i think that is true, they might have a challenge at the begining of the game just like all the rest, but it looks like they are going to win this game. (hopefully)

Ditto.

And Richards messing up on that penalty-shot didn't help things for Philly either.

By the way, welcome to the forum, Sabresfan3. :)
