PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 42-26-14, 98 Points. Third in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Pittsburgh Penguins in first round of Eastern Conference playoffs.
COACH: Dave Hakstol (fourth season, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: F James van Riemsdyk, D Christian Folin.
LOST: F Matt Read, D Brandon Manning.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Nolan Patrick. The Flyers bet their future on the 20-year-old Patrick when they made the center the No. 2 pick of the 2017 draft. Patrick had been bothered by a variety of injuries and but didn't need offseason surgery for the first time since 2015. Patrick's ice time jumped late in the season and he could blossom into a star this season paired on a line with James van Riemsdyk, a 36-goal scorer who signed a $35 million, five-year contract. On a team that still counts on the veterans for the bulk of the scoring, Patrick's emergence would show the Flyers were right to start a rebuild.
OUTLOOK: The Flyers have won between 33 and 42 games each of the last five years, a streak of mediocrity that sometimes gets them in the playoffs and sometimes it doesn't. The Flyers would like to not have to wait until the final week of the season to qualify for a playoff berth but it's difficult to imagine they can approach 100 points this season.
BUFFALO: LAST SEASON: 25-45-12, 62 points. Finished last in NHL standings for third time in five years.
COACH: Phil Housley (second season, second NHL season).
ADDED: LW Jeff Skinner, LW Conor Sheary, C Tage Thompson, C Patrik Berglund, C Vladimir Sobotka, rookie D Rasmus Dahlin, D Matt Hunwick, D Lawrence Pilut, G Carter Hutton.
LOST: C Ryan O'Reilly, G Robin Lehner, LW Benoit Pouliot, D Victor Antipin, D Josh Gorges, C Jordan Nolan, G Chad Johnson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Dahlin, the 18-year-old Swedish-born smooth-skating, play-making defenseman selected with the first pick in the draft. Dahlin has such potential, Hockey Hall of Fame
COACH and nine-time Stanley Cup-winner Scotty Bowman says the youngster has the potential to become the best defenseman in Sabres history. Dahlin has already roused a fan base, which jammed the Sabres 1,800-seat practice facility to see him perform during the team's rookie camp in June and a four-team prospects tournament earlier this month.
OUTLOOK: The Sabres can't get much worse than the over-priced and under-achieving squad that won three straight games just once, and endured losing streaks of four or more games seven times last season. Things became so grim, O'Reilly in April revealed he
LOST his passion for playing at times, and a losing mentality crept into the locker room. O'Reilly was traded to St. Louis in one of numerous moves GM Jason Botterill made to overhaul a roster that will feature anywhere between nine and 12 players not in the season-opening lineup a year ago. The question is how long it will take for the newcomers to find chemistry.
Sabres ride six-game win streak; Flyers may change goalies

The Philadelphia Flyers appear ready to make a goaltending change Wednesday when they visit the Buffalo Sabres, who are going so well they just want things to stay just the way they are.

While indications on Tuesday were that Alex Lyon, who played in 11 NHL games last season, would make his season debut for the Flyers in the game at KeyBank Center, the Sabres will be trying to extend their winning streak to seven games.

Buffalo scored four straight goals, capped by team captain Jack Eichel's overtime winner Monday night in a comeback 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was the third comeback win on a three-game road trip for the Sabres (13-6-2), who are on a six-game winning streak for the first time since Dec. 27, 2009-Jan. 8, 2010.

"There's a bit of confidence now because we've done it a few times," Eichel said after the game. "I think it's a trust and a belief in each other. You look at the room, I think the guys are believing the next guy's going to get the job done and set you up for your shifts.

"We're a pretty tight bunch right now for how many new guys have come into this team. I think we're getting really close right now and we're doing it for each other, and I think that's the biggest thing. Everyone out there doesn't want to let the guy next to them down."

The Sabres also defeated the Winnipeg Jets and the Minnesota Wild on the trip.

"I thought that was a heck of a road trip against three really good hockey teams," Eichel said.

The Flyers (9-9-2) have not played since losing 6-5 in overtime at home Saturday to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Flyers, who scored four goals in the third period to force overtime Saturday, finished the homestand at 2-2-1.

With injuries to goaltenders Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth, Cal Pickard was in goal Saturday for the Flyers. In eight appearances, Pickard has a 4.60 goals-against average and an .852 save percentage.

Lyon, 25, who was recalled last week from the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL, left the ice first at practice Tuesday, an indication that he will start in Buffalo, although Flyers coach Dave Hakstol did not reveal his choice.

"We've probably generated more offense over the past three games than we had in the previous five games," Hakstol said. "The opportunities are coming. We weren't able to finish. We've talked about different things we can do a little better -- simplifying thing, making sure we're getting to the net. To have the floodgates open in the third period the other night was needed and was a good thing for us. I hope we'll be able to keep generating opportunities, and obviously the most important thing is to continue to finish."

The Flyers have a 104-83 advantage in shots on goal over the past three games but have been outscored 11-6.

"I've prepared the right way," Lyon said. "I'm just sticking to the same game plan. I just tried to go out and have a really good practice (Tuesday), and whenever the situation may call, I'll be ready for it."

The Flyers will need to be at their best against the surging Sabres.

"They're a good team," Flyers center Sean Couturier said. "They're streaking right now. They've got a lot of talent, a lot of skill. It's going to be a tough game, a big challenge. We'll be ready."

If goaltending is a question for the Flyers, the Sabres have had good work from their goalie, Carter Hutton, who stopped 36 of 40 shots on Monday, including an important save when the Penguins had a two-on-none chance during a Sabres power play in the first period.

Hutton also made a big save on Phil Kessel during a 29-second spell in the second period when Pittsburgh had a five-on-three power play.

"I think the key moment of the game, obviously, was the five-on-three," Sabres coach Phil Housley said.

The Sabres have won five games when trailing after two periods, a league best.

"It's just unbelievable, the resiliency," Housley said. "This road trip, it's tough. It says a lot about this group in there, the character and the fight they showed (Monday)."
