Recap: Sabres claim the Kings throne in a rebound victory

Sabres bounce back with a nice win over the Kings It was a rough few games for the Buffalo Sabres and the Los Angeles Kings heading into today’s matinee. Unfortunately for the Kings the struggles continued and the Sabres were the team that bounced back this afternoon. The Sabres got the first goal of the game from the newly created top line of Jeff Skinner, Jack Eichel, and Jason Pominville. The 35-year-old winger scored his second of the season when he crashed the net and batted a bouncing puck by Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick. A great look at the goal. Eichel & Pominville crashed...

Overanalyzing Jeff Skinner’s First Goal With The Sabres

Overanalyzing Jeff Skinner’s First Goal With The Sabres

Jeff Skinner’s first goal with the Sabres was impressive, but we break it down for you to get full appreciation Arguably the best move Jason Botterill made this past offseason was the acquisition of Jeff Skinner at the minor cost of a decent prospect and a few non first-round picks. In my opinion a steal of a trade for a no doubt top line winger that contributes at 5v5 at an elite level. Unfortunately, through the teams first four games he had failed to score a goal. That changed Saturday night against the Coyotes in one of the first highlight reel goals of the season for the...

Recap: Sabres shutout Coyotes 3-0

Dahlin scores, Ullmark perfect in debut The Buffalo Sabres improved to a 3-2-0 record Saturday night as they topped the Arizona Coyotes in a 3-0 decision.

Conor Sheary also scored in the win, while Linus Ullmark made 36 saves in his first appearance of the season. The scoring started just under three minutes in, when Skinner made some nice moves despite being trailed by three Coyotes and nearly put it in the net. With Coyotes goaltender Antti Raanta out of...

Sabres rookie Rasmus Dahlin scores first NHL goal

It should surprise no one Rasmus Dahlin scored his first goal because he zoomed to the net. In his early days in the NHL, the slick Buffalo Sabres rookie already showcases an aggressiveness few defensemen possess. Dahlin, 18, joins the rush so much he often looks like a forward. So it was fitting 2:45 into Saturday’s 3-0 road win, Dahlin, who was trailing the play, moved in from the slot and buried winger Jeff Skinner’s ... Read the full article

Sabres’ Jeff Skinner moves to line with Casey Mittelstadt

BUFFALO – The tenacity Sabres winger Jeff Skinner has showcased early this season impresses coach Phil Housley. “I really like the way he’s working, his forechecking,” Housley said this afternoon inside KeyBank Center. “He steals pucks and he strips pucks. (I like) the way he’s coming back into our zone. There’s just nothing evolving from that point.” Skinner, 26, is pointless in first four outings with the Sabres. So Housley moved the left winger, an ... Read the full article

By The Numbers: The New Guys and Hot Starts

New guys on the Hurricanes roster are dramatically exceeding expectations through the first four games. Sitting at 3-0-1, the Carolina Hurricanes are at the top of the NHL standings in what has been the best regular season start in franchise history. With the departure of longtime leading goal scorer Jeff Skinner and top six forward Elias Lindholm, the narrative surrounding this team coming into the season was a lack of proven offensive producers in the lineup. Through the first four games, the club has dispelled this dramatically, sitting at second in the NHL in both total goals scored...

Preseason Depth Chart

Preseason Depth Chart

With the season opening later this week, it is perfect time to look our depth chart. The last time we brought a depth chart to you, this offense looked a little different. Left Wing Jeff Skinner and Conor Sheary lead the pack here, as they should. Both Skinner and Sheary add to the Sabres inability to score 5-on-5, which will be a nice little addition. Vladimir Sobotka has shown his versatility within the lineup this preseason but it appears that they have settled on a position for now. He will end up being a nice addition to the bottom six. The curious case of Zemgus...
