Flyers edge Sabres for fifth straight victory

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- During their 10-game losing streak last month, the Philadelphia Flyers couldn't find a way to win a one-goal game, losing six of them during that stretch.

The Flyers (13-11-7) have been far more decisive in close games since and Thursday night, they won for the fifth straight time, carving out a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

"I think it was a boring game," said Flyers right winger Jakub Voracek, who set up Valtteri Filppula's game-winning goal late in the second period. "It wasn't fun to watch."
