The Flyers and Sabres were tied 2-2 going into the third period, but the Flyers gave up three goals in the third to fall to the Sabres, 5-2.
The Flyers dropped both of their opening weekend games and have struggled to keep teams from scoring on the power play, allowing three goals while shorthanded on Sunday (see story).
They get back on the ice when they face the Devils on Tuesday. Here's a look around the rest of the day in the NHL:
Penguins off to fast start
NEW YORK -- James Neal scored twice, Evgeni Malkin assisted on three Pittsburgh goals, and the Penguins chased reigning Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist from the net in the second period of a 6-3 victory over the Rangers in New York's home opener on Sunday night.
Neal, Tyler Kennedy and Matt Niskanen all scored in the first period, and Malkin set up Pascal Dupuis in the second to push Pittsburgh's lead to 4-1 and drive Lundqvist to the bench. The Penguins, building off a 3-1 win at Philadelphia on Saturday, are 2-0 in the lockout-shortened season and haven't even played a home game.
Neal added his second of the game and third of the season off another assist by Malkin to make it 5-1 at 5:06 of the third. Kris Letang added an empty-net goal with 1:52 left to close the scoring.
Parise scores, Wild shut out Stars
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Zach Parise scored his first goal with the Wild and Josh Harding stopped all 24 shots he faced in his first start since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and Minnesota beat the Dallas Stars 1-0 on Sunday.
Parise notched his third point with the Wild a night after getting two assists in Minnesota's season-opening win against Colorado.
Parise's first goal of the season came at 8:11 of the first period just as a 4-on-3 advantage for the Wild expired.
He one-timed a pass from Pierre-Marc Bouchard past Cristopher Nilstorp from the slot.
Nilstorp, who signed with the Stars in June after playing the previous four seasons in the Swedish Elite League, stopped 31 shots in his first career NHL start for Dallas (see full recap).
Luongo starts, Canucks lose in shootout
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Ales Hemsky scored in the third period to tie the game and added the shootout winner and the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Sunday.
Sam Gagner also scored in the shootout for the Oilers, who were making their debut in the lockout-shortened season, while Devan Dubnyk stopped both Vancouver attempts.
The Canucks blew a 2-0 lead and have suffered back-to-back losses after losing 7-3 to Anaheim at home on Saturday night.
Roberto Luongo, who was expected to be traded after being displaced as Vancouver's starter by Cory Schneider in last spring's playoffs, made his second straight appearance in the young season and finished with 30 saves (see full recap).
