> Thumbs up

Tyler Ennis: (Above): The kid gets a kick out of shutting up visiting fans. His OT winner did just that. Now can he get a rise out of the home crowd?

James van Riemsdyk: The Flyers' forward remains the series MVP. He had eight shots in Game Five and started the comeback.

Buffalo penalty killers: No NHL unit has been busier, yet the group continually comes through. The kill in the final two minutes Friday was the latest example.

> Thumbs down

Curly, Larry and Moe: Also known as Flyers goalies Sergei Bobrovsky, Brian Boucher and Michael Leighton.

Jason Pominville: The Sabres' top two-way forward is done after taking a skate blade to the back of the leg.

Zac Rinaldo: The Flyers dressed the minor-league menace to combat Buffalo's toughness, but he had the skill to play just three shifts.

> Keys for the Sabres

The team that scores first has won every game. Get the home crowd rocking right away.

Brad Boyes needs to embrace his return to right wing and end his 16-game scoring drought.

Whichever goalie they face will be nervous. Shoot from here, there and everywhere.

> Keys for the Flyers

They showed up 20 minutes late to the last game. Realize the puck drops at 3 today.

Don't rely on the goaltender. They need to be ready to outscore the Sabres no matter what.

At some point their power-play unit is going to have to make a difference.
