Thomas Vanek was the difference-maker in the Buffalo Sabres' 5-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, factoring into all five goals.
Vanek's five-point (two goals, three assists) night represents a new career-high. He displayed some breakout speed and beautiful hands in open ice. Buffalo needs more nights like these from the sniper, who's one of the highest-paid players in the NHL. Cody Hodgson, Tyler Myers and Steve Ott collected Buffalo's other tallies.
