Sabres at Bruins Preview: The cat's out of the bag

Buffalo looks to split the home-and-home with Boston.

Sabres vs. Bruins Recap: Spooner wins it in a shootout

The Sabres weren't able to continue the two-game winning streak Thursday. Just think, if the Sabres had made the rumored trade of Chris Stewart for Ryan Spooner they may have won this one game. Spooner scored the only goal in the shootout, as Chad Johnson wasn't able to keep a blank slate. However, it's definitely unfair to put this loss on Johnson, even if the tying Brad Marchand goal was one he had a shot at. He made some incredible saves down the stretch, keeping the Sabres in the game. Brian Gionta and Evander Kane weren't able to beat Tuukka Rask, putting the game on Ryan O'Reilly's...

Sabres at Canadiens Recap: Secondary scoring leads Sabres to 4-2 win

Goals from Foligno, Larsson, McGinn, and Gionta powered the Sabres to victory over the Canadiens. One of the biggest NHL story lines of the past few months has been the downfall of the Montreal Canadiens. Tonight, the Buffalo Sabres helped pile on to that slump thanks to a 4-2 comeback victory over the slumping Habs. The Sabres got their second half off to a good start thanks to an unlikely source - Marcus Foligno earned a promotion tonight to the second line and rewarded Dan Bylsma's decision with the opening goal of the game, putting a wrister from Zemgus Girgensons past Mike Condon for...

Why are the Sabres still stuck in the NHL basement?

The Sabres look like a better team, but why are they still stuck in 27th place? Here are some areas that need to get better in order for this team to take the next step. At the beginning of the 2015-16 season, there was a buzz around the Buffalo Sabres that hadn't been felt in years. Fans in Western New York were excited about a new coach, a new potential superstar, and a massive influx of new talent that would signal the coming of a new era in Sabres history. Improvements were certain, and the playoffs seemed within reach for the first time in forever. This year, things were going to be...

2016 NHL All-Star Game Coverage

All of our coverage from Ryan O'Reilly's trip to NHL All Star weekend. Buffalo Sabres forward Ryan O'Reilly was among the 40 players named the the 2016 NHL All-Star Game in Nashville, the league announced Wednesday. It's not hard to see why O'Reilly will be making his first career all-star appearance. In his first season after coming over from the Colorado Avalanche, the 24-year-old center leads the Sabres in goals (16), assists (18) and points (34), all while averaging nearly 22 minutes of ice time per night. So far, he's more than lived up to the billing as a No. 1 center—something the...

2016 NHL All-Star Game final score: Pacific wins 1-0, Scott named MVP

John Scott provided a memory hockey fans will never forget. The 2016 NHL All Star Game was one of the more entertaining mid-season contests in recent history. Part of that was due to the new 3-on-3 format which (for the first two games) provided some serious entertainment value for fans in attendance and watching on TV. But the other big reason to watch was to see how the trials and tribulations of John Scott would play out. When it was all said an done, Walt Disney himself couldn't have written a better story. Scott scored two goals in the Pacific Division's first game, and was named All...

Buffalo Sabres All-Time 3-on-3 Teams: Which Era Wins?

Four eras of Buffalo hockey. Forty four of the best players in Sabres history. Who wins? The NHL is hoping that a new 3-on-3 format will inject new life into its all-star game. I know I am looking forward to watching the game this weekend and I can't remember the last time that was true of an all-star game of any kind. It also got me thinking about what a Sabres all-star game would look like. So, in the spirit of this year's game, my DBTB colleagues and I divided Sabres history into four eras—the Founding Era (1970-83), the Blue and Gold Era (1984-95), the Black and Red Era (1996-05) and...

Sabres at Senators recap: Eichel scores two, Lehner gets first win in 3-2 victory

After a crazy finish, the Sabres emerged victorious thanks to Jack Eichel and Robin Lehner. Robin Lehner made his return to Ottawa, for the first time after being traded to the Buffalo Sabres, as a still-winless goaltender. But Lehner was so good, especially at the nail-biting finish, and he left Ottawa as the MVP of the Sabres thrilling 3-2 victory. It must have been sweet for Robin Lehner to play such a strong game in his return to the team that traded him away. Lehner made 34 saves, stopping all 22 Ottawa shots in the third period,  and even notched an assist on Eichel's first goal to...
