Game 17 Preview: Flyers at Sabres


The Flyers have a golden opportunity this weekend to pile on some points, as they will face the Buffalo Sabres in back-to-back games. The Sabres are currently sitting in last place in the East division and seem to have some turmoil going on with some of their star players (Jack Eichel wanting out, Jeff Skinner being scratched). It'll also be a great opportunity since they will be close to having their full roster available, as Scott Laughton, Oskar Lindblom, and Jake Voracek are all expected to play in their first game post-COVID. As of now, Travis Konecny is the last remaining Flyer on the COVID protocol list.
