BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) - Peter Forsberg has used his golden touch to revive the playoff fortunes of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Forsberg looks for his third consecutive impressive outing Sunday when the Flyers visit the Buffalo Sabres in Game Five of their Eastern Conference series.

A two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Colorado Avalanche who helped lead Sweden to an Olympic gold medal in February, Forsberg had two goals and an assist in each of his last two games.

Eric Desjardins, Petr Nedved and R.J. Umberger also scored Friday for the Flyers, who rallied from a first-period deficit in a 5-4 victory over the Sabres.

Daniel Briere scored twice and Thomas Vanek and Mike Grier added tallies for Buffalo in Game Four.

The Sabres are expected to have defenseman Teppo Numminen back in the lineup for Game Five after he sat out Friday because of heart problems.

The series shifts to Philadelphia for Game Six on Tuesday.
