The Flyers ended their trading frenzy yesterday by addressing a goaltending position that was in dire need of an upgrade. Before yesterday's 3 p.m. trade deadline, the Flyers made another big splash in the trade market by acquiring goaltender Martin Biron from the Buffalo Sabres for a second-round pick in the 2007 NHL draft. Although the 29-year-old Biron had lost his starting job to Ryan Miller in Buffalo, the Flyers do not view him as a backup goalie. Even though Biron can be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, the team did not acquire him to be a late-season rental.

The effort was there. The shots were there. The only thing missing, once again, were the goals. The Flyers' late-season nosedive continued last night at HSBC Arena, where the Buffalo Sabres handed them a 3-1 loss with some help from the officials. It was the Flyers' third loss in a row, the first time they have dropped three straight under coach Bill Barber. "We had quality shots and [Martin] Biron came up big," Barber said of the Buffalo goalie's 34 saves. "Our guys worked hard tonight.

Jeff Friesen has been a streaky goal scorer since coming to the New Jersey Devils, and it appears he's on another run. After going 10 games without a goal, Friesen scored his third in four games early in the third period to lead the Devils to a 3-2 victory over the visiting Atlanta Thrashers last night. "Sometimes you get in slumps and, for whatever reason, guys don't get on the same page," Friesen said. "Sometimes it's a frustrating rut to get out of, but I feel I'm out of the rut now and I'm starting to contribute offensively.

Martin Biron made 32 saves to win his 11th straight start, and Derek Roy had a goal and an assist as host Buffalo beat Dallas last night, 4-3. Biron extended his personal and franchise-best winning streak and became the first goalie to win 11 in a row since New Jersey's Martin Brodeur in 2001. Maxim Afinogenov, Thomas Vanek and Daniel Briere also scored for the Sabres. Jere Lehtinen, Steve Ott and Stephane Robidas scored for the Stars. Dallas goalie Marty Turco had his four-game winning streak snapped, finishing with 18 saves.

Former Colorado player Chris Drury scored with 2:23 left and Martin Biron stopped 32 shots as the Buffalo Sabres beat the host Avalanche, 3-1, last night. The Sabres' Jean-Pierre Dumont added an empty-net goal with 58 seconds left. Buffalo's Ales Kotalik opened the scoring 2 minutes into the second period, redirecting Rory Fitzpatrick's shot from the left circle past Sauve on a power play for his third of the season. Alex Tanguay tied it with 5 minutes left in the period, lifting a shot just under the bar on a power play.

There was precious little to feel good about yesterday after the Flyers' 6-2 loss Saturday night against the New Jersey Devils. Not when the club will play three games in four days this week, including road matches with Carolina and Ottawa. Two things must get better quickly for the Flyers to end their two-game losing streak. First, they can't go 0 for 7 on the power play. Second, Martin Biron must play better than allowing four goals on 22 shots. Biron's starts have been either very good or very bad. Flyers coach John Stevens is perplexed and planned to talk to the goalie yesterday about his Jekyll-and-Hyde performances.

Jozef Stumpel had a great day. Stumpel was named to the Olympic team for Slovakia and then scored two goals to help the Florida Panthers beat visiting Buffalo, 4-1, last night. "It's exciting and maybe it gave me a lift," Stumpel said of making the roster for Turin, Italy. The victory snapped the Sabres' seven-game winning streak and ended goalie Martin Biron's 13-game winning streak. "They created the chances and created more opportunities and they got the goals," Biron said.

The Avalanche is making its slow start seem like ancient history. David Aebischer made 26 saves as visiting Colorado beat the Buffalo Sabres, 4-1, last night. Joe Sakic, Dan Hinote, Steve Reinprecht and Milan Hejduk scored for the Avalanche, which came from behind to extend its unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1). Colorado has captured 19 of its last 24 potential points. Colorado handed Buffalo its first loss in five games. The Sabres had just won three straight road games.

A slumbering offense is no longer a concern for resurgent Washington. Their opponents are the ones who are frustrated now. Jaromir Jagr had a goal and an assist as the Capitals beat the visiting New York Rangers last night, 6-2, in a game that ended in a wild melee that featured 60 minutes in penalties. "It's another steppingstone- the way we've been creating offensive opportunities and playing well in our own end," Capitals coach Ron Wilson said. "We're worried about the process, and not the end result.

Daniel Tjarnqvist scored on a 55-foot shot with 7 minutes, 24 seconds left last night as the Atlanta Thrashers kept alive their slim playoff hopes by defeating the Washington Capitals, 3-2. "I'd rather see a 38 m.p.h. shot that's on net than a 110 m.p.h. shot that's on the glass," Thrashers coach Bob Hartley said of the winning goal. "It was a shot on net, and there was traffic in front. That's the way you score goals. " The Thrashers tied a franchise record with their 31st victory, but they're still 10 points behind the New York Islanders for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Phillies aren't the only team in town lacking a closer right now. The Flyers haven't had one for a while, either. Yesterday at TD Banknorth Garden, they played one of their best all-around hockey games. Then they blew a lead with 26.4 seconds left in regulation and lost, 3-2, to the Bruins in overtime. It's the fourth time this season the Flyers have blown a third-period lead and lost. "It's the same story, us struggling to close out games," a disgusted Danny Briere said.

It was all there, gift-wrapped for the Flyers. A 3-0 lead with 19 minutes to play, and a chance to tie Boston for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. All the Flyers had to do was play out the period. Instead, they suffered a monumental collapse last night, allowing the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team desperate to make the playoffs, to storm back and win in the final minute of overtime, 4-3, on a goal by Pavel Kubina. "We played with way too much panic in our game; we had the puck and turned it over," said angry Flyers coach John Stevens.

Other than an occasional grimace, John Stevens usually is rather stoic on the bench. Last night at HSBC Arena, the Flyers' coach called his only time-out to yell at his team less than seven minutes into the game. The early tongue-lashing worked. The Flyers roared back from an eventual three-goal deficit to defeat the Sabres, 4-3, in the shoot-out, ending a 10-game skid (0-8-2). "That was for us to wake up," said Danny Briere, who, fittingly, won it with his first shoot-out goal in five attempts.

If the Flyers are looking for a test to determine just how hot they are, they could find it in their opponent at the Wachovia Center tonight, the New Jersey Devils. The Flyers are 1-4 against New Jersey this season, with four straight losses. With 57 points each, the Flyers and the Devils are battling it out near the top of the NHL's Eastern Conference, behind Sunday night's vanquished opponent, the Ottawa Senators (64 points). Tonight, the Flyers are hoping their momentum - and their smarts - will help them keep their streak alive.

Martin Biron wished he had been there. "It looked like a lot of fun to be in it, but a hard game to play," the Flyers goalie said about Tuesday's historic NHL Winter Classic game. The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Buffalo Sabres played on a snowy, windy day outside at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, home of the Bills. "The players seemed to have fun," Biron, an ex-Sabre, said. "Every shot of people in the stands, they seemed they had a great time. I have been to games in that stadium when it's snowing, and it's the best.

The Briere Bunch - Danny Briere and goalie Martin Biron - made their much-anticipated return to Sabreland last night at HSBC Arena. There were a lot of boos for Danny boy every time he touched the puck. "That's about what I expected," Briere said. "I'm just disappointed about the way we lost the game. Everything else was a fun day, a fun game, apart from the way we found to lose again. " The Sabres extended the Flyers' losing skid to five games with a 3-2, come-from-behind victory.

Ryan Miller says Danny Briere should receive a warm reception when he steps onto the ice at HSBC Arena tonight for the first time in a Flyers sweater. And the Sabres' goalie is making a prediction. "Danny is not happy unless he has a nice night of points," Miller said. Briere, talking on his cell phone, laughed. "He said that? You know what will make me happy? If we win the game - that's all I need," Briere said. Briere and Flyers goalie Martin Biron's long-awaited return to Buffalo is upon us. "I haven't talked to Danny a lot," Miller said.
