Jeff Carter's late-season scoring slump has carried into the playoffs.

Two games. Lots of chances. No goals.

"Obviously it's frustrating," said Carter, who led the Flyers with 36 goals in the regular season. "My role on the team is to put the puck in the net. I've had a couple chances here and there throughout the first two, but I need to start bearing down here and getting them in the net, and help the team out."

Carter has struggled in the postseason throughout his career, collecting just seven goals and five assists in 31 playoff games.

The Flyers and Sabres, knotted at one game apiece in their series, will meet in Buffalo on Monday at 7 p.m.

"As the series goes on, the desperation level has to go up every game," Carter said. "This third game is huge. We gave our home ice away, so we need to go to Buffalo and get it back."

Like Carter, captain Mike Richards is without a point in the series and is trying to get untracked. Including the regular season, Carter has two goals in his last 10 games, and Richards has two goals in his last 11 games.
