Early help on busy day out of town

The Sabres got their first bit of good news today out of the Wachovia Center as the Flyers dumped the Rangers, 4-2, in the first of the teams' home-and-home weekend matinees (they'll be on NBC from the Garden Sunday at 12:30). So that leaves the Rangers with 78 points, three ahead of the Sabres, and pushes the Flyers to 84. Old friend Marty Biron made 39 saves in the game for the Flyers.

6 p.m update: Ottawa did the Sabres a favor by scoring two goals in the third period to pull even and then beating Pittsburgh in the shootout, 4-3. So the Penguins are temporarily tied with Montreal at 80 points.
