    Luukkonen stopped 32 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Flyers.

    Luukkonen was by far the busier netminder, as Philadelphia outshot Buffalo by a 34-19 margin. He came up big once again for a Sabres squad that refuses to fade out of the playoff picture. Luukkonen has gone 8-5-1 since the beginning of March with a 2.81 GAA and .903 save percentage but may need to heat up again to get Buffalo across the finish line -- the team is now only four points back of Philly for the final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference.
