Flyers eliminate Sabres from playoffs in 2-1 win
Read's late goal to lift Flyers to 2-1 win over Buffalo and eliminate Sabres from playoff spot
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Matt Read and Marc-Andre Bourdon each scored goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win Thursday night over Buffalo that eliminated the Sabres from a postseason spot.

The Sabres needed to beat the Flyers and have Florida top Washington to keep their faint playoff hopes alive heading into their final game of the season. The Sabres failed to handle the Flyers and the Capitals beat Florida 4-2.

Buffalo tried to join the 1994 New York Islanders in becoming the NHL's second team to rally from a 10-point deficit in mid-February to make the playoffs.



Read beat goalie Ryan Miller on a breakaway with 4:21 left in the game to end Buffalo's bid.

The Flyers eliminated the Sabres in Game 7 of the opening-round playoff series last season.
