Recap: Sabres collapse in third, fall 5-1 to Sharks

The Sabres fell behind early, and fell apart late in San Jose Following an ugly loss at the hands of the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, the Buffalo Sabres needed a a strong outing last night against a dangerous San Jose Sharks team. Unfortunately, the boys in blue-and-gold were unable to overcome a one-goal deficit heading into the third period, allowing three goals in the final frame en route to a 5-1 blowout. The Sharks set the tone early, registering their first two goals of the game just 4:02 into the opening frame after capitalizing twice on a double-minor high-sticking penalty...

Sabres Sign Pekar the Pest

While homeowners wince at the idea of pests in their house, the Buffalo Sabres have gladly welcomed one to their organization, inking forward Matej Pekar to a three-year, entry-level contract. Pekar, a native of Turnov, Czech Republic, was chosen in the fourth round (94th overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot, 173 pound […] The post Sabres Sign Pekar the Pest appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Sabres struggling with consistency

Sabres struggling with consistency

Through six games, the Sabres have shown some improvement, but remain inconsistent in several areas Now sitting at .500 through six games, the Buffalo Sabres are an improved, yet still deeply flawed hockey team. On a game-by-game basis, they’ve done their best Jekyll and Hyde impression, looking cohesive one night and disastrous the next. Following Tuesday night’s ugly road loss to a Vegas team whom the Sabres beat handily on home ice just eight days prior, fans have placed the blame in several different areas. While it’s always easy to call out an individual player on a given night...

Patrik Berglund struggles may be tied to his coach

Patrik Berglund struggles may be tied to his coach

While Berglund has struggled through six games, his situational usage may be to blame It’s fair to say that is hasn’t been a smooth start to Patrik Berglund’s Buffalo Sabres career. Through six games, the veteran forward has been unable to get involved offensively and has been caught out of position a few times defensively. Perhaps the most notable defensive gaff came on the Vegas Golden Knights first goal on Tuesday evening. Jonathan Marchessault blew past Berglund who was caught napping. When Berglund realized what was happening he was too late and Marchessault had an easy...

Golden Knights 4, Sabres 1: 5 things we learned from Vegas’ first home victory of the season

Golden Knights 4, Sabres 1: 5 things we learned from Vegas’ first home victory of the season

Vegas has strung together consecutive wins for the first time this season. The start of the Golden Knights’ season hasn’t quite been on par with what was expected of the reigning Western Conference champs. After being walloped in the season opener, Vegas went on to lose three of their next four games, including an ugly 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Columbus Day. Tuesday night, the Knights had an opportunity to make up for their mediocre showing in the first meeting with Buffalo, and they took full advantage. Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring late in the first period by...

Sabres sign prospect Matej Pekar to entry-level contract

Just 10 games with the Ontario Hockey League’s Barrie Colts was enough to convince the Buffalo Sabres center Matej Pekar has a future in pro hockey. The Sabres have signed Pekar to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced today. They drafted the Czech in the fourth-round earlier this year, 94th overall. The OHL rookie has already compiled six goals and 11 points this season. Pekar originally planned to return to the junior United States ... Read the full article

Recap: House wins, Sabres fall 4-1 in Vegas

The Sabres even strength and power play struggles reigned supreme in a 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights It was a rough night in Las Vegas for the Buffalo Sabres. They got off to a good start in the first few minutes of the game, but after that the Golden Knights controlled play for most of the night. It looked like Vegas got on the scoreboard first. Defenseman Shea Theodore had a nice rush through the neutral zone and made a nice move around Rasmus Dahlin before beating Carter Hutton. Fortunately for the Sabres the play was offside and the goal was overturned after a challenge. The Golden...

GAME THREAD 7/82: Buffalo Sabres at Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights return home after a five-game road trip to square off against the Sabres. The Golden Knights are coming off an impressive 1-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers in which Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves, several of which were spectacular. Like with Philadelphia, the Knights have a chance to split the season series against the Sabres tonight after suffering a 4-2 loss Oct. 8. Yesterday’s surprising news about the severity of Paul Stastny’s lower-body injury will have Erik Haula officially step in as the team’s second-line center. Haula’s only point of the...

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...
