Jim Hesch collected seven points on three goals to lead the Buffalo Blizzard to a 16-6 victory over the Kixx in an NPSL game last night in the HSBC Arena. The Kixx (18-16), who managed just three third-quarter goals, have now lost three straight games and six of their last seven. It was the team's largest margin of defeat this season. The Kixx remain three games behind first-place Harrisburg in the American Conference but are just 1/2 game ahead of Buffalo (18-17). Philadelphia's magic number to reach the playoffs for the fifth straight year is still four with six games remaining.

BUFFALO - No need to revisit the lost Super Bowls and Stanley Cup playoff runs that fell short, but Buffalo for years has been a pessimistic, if not tortured, sports town. Sabres owner Terry Pegula changed the culture with his positive nature and commitment to winning. In less than 2 months, he restored faith and hope. Remember, winning is not a goal. It's a belief. Of course, you believed yesterday afternoon when Rob Niedermayer wired a wrist shot into the top corner for an early lead against the Flyers, sending the 18,600 fans inside HSBC Arena and another 6,000 outside its doors into pure, unbridled jubilation.

As Jason Pominville hopped on one leg up the runway toward the Sabres' locker room Friday at the Wells Fargo Center, blood pouring down his other leg, he left his teammates several voids to fill as Buffalo tries to oust the Flyers from the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs on Sunday at HSBC Arena. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Saturday that Pominville would not play in Game 6. Ruff would not disclose specifics of the injury, but it's believed Pominville suffered a severe cut from a skate.

In the regular season, few players have been as durable for the Flyers as Jeff Carter. Through his six complete NHL seasons, Carter has played in at least 80 games in a season four times. But that is where the luck runs out. Carter, who sat out the final two periods of Wednesday's Game 4 loss in Buffalo, is likely to be considered doubtful for tonight's pivotal Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Officially, the Flyers say their leading goal scorer from the regular season is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

BUFFALO - The puck stood on Tyler Myers' stick, amid a sea of yellow towels waving feverishly at HSBC Arena, less than 50 feet from Ryan Miller in front of the Buffalo net. For that brief minute, two seasons stood still. There were just 42 seconds left on the clock, just 42 seconds separating the Sabres from the one point needed to clinch a playoff spot on their own terms - after erasing a 13-point deficit in the middle of January. And the Flyers, also in desperate need of a point and already aware of Pittsburgh's overtime win on Long Island at the eastern tip of the vast New York empire - were more than willing dance partners in Buffalo's game of "keep away.

BUFFALO - With or without Ryan Miller in net tonight, the Flyers can all but guarantee one tough customer in the Buffalo Sabres. That's because Buffalo needs just one point to officially clinch a playoff spot after a nearly miraculous second-half surge through the standings. In early December, the Sabres were in last overall in the NHL. In early January, they were a full 13 points back of a playoff spot. Tonight's point, which would earn them that familiar "x" designation on the standings page, has been in their sights for weeks now. "We've played 80 games to get to this point," Sabres forward Jason Pominville said yesterday after Buffalo's 45-minute practice at HSBC Arena.

SKATING just hours after learning he was snubbed from the All-Star Game roster, Danny Briere didn't need much help getting up for last night's game at HSBC Arena. Last night was a confluence of motivation for Briere. Not only was Briere not selected for the All-Star Game yesterday, he just happened to be playing in Buffalo - where he spent parts of four seasons before spurning the Sabres in free agency for the Flyers. All that pent-up frustration resulted in Briere's first four-point game of the season.
