Ducks vs Sabres RECAP: Offensive Struggles Continue

Ducks vs Sabres RECAP: Offensive Struggles Continue

Offense, offense, wherefore art thou offense? The Ducks were looking to rebound from a rather ugly game against the Colorado Avalanche against a winless Buffalo Sabres team. Unfortunately, they once again struggled to find the back of the net, and Buffalo was able to put their first W for the 2017-2018 season. Here is a period-by-period breakdown of how it all happened. 1st Period: The 1st period started and.... oh... the Sabres are already winning. John Gibson, returning to the lineup after missing the last two periods of the Colorado game, fumbled a rebound, which was then shoveled in by...

Ducks vs Sabres PREVIEW: Eichel Comes To Town

Show me the money Game #6 Buffalo Sabres @ Anaheim Ducks Time: Sunday, October 15th, 1800hrs PST Honda Center TV: PRIME, MSG-B The Unfortunate Other Lot: Die by the Blade 2-2-1 and, as is the god damned right, with a firm grasp on a playoff spot. That’s how this injured Ducks team is rolling into game 6 against the Sabres. Sure they're one of the luckier teams in the competition with a 101.3% PDO, but for a team thats this beat up, their current standing position is pretty good going. Getzlaf, Kesler, Lindholm, Vatanen, are all on the shelf. Gibson is touch and go, after his back* gave...

Sabres vs. Leafs Preview & Game Thread: Back to Buffalo

Buffalo to ice more experienced roster in rematch After last night’s 3-0 loss, the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs faceoff again tonight, with this game back at KeyBank Center. Friday night’s game saw the Sabres ice a relatively young roster, filled with a lot of players who are likely to end up in the AHL this season. Saturday’s game, however, should provide a look at a more stacked, experienced NHL roster. Tonight’s game also marks the first Sabres preseason game of the year to be televised.

Sabres Assign 10 to AHL & One to Juniors

Sabres trim the training camp roster to 36 The Buffalo Sabres trimmed their training camp roster assigning ten players to the Rochester Amerks and one to OHL.

It’s Now or Never for Girgensons

It’s Now or Never for Girgensons

Flashing back to the 2012 NHL Entry Level Draft, when the Buffalo Sabres selected forward Zemgus Girgensons with the 14th overall pick. At the time, dreams lined Girgensons up with fellow first-round pick Mikhail Grigorenko, as both would lead Buffalo to sure glory following more than a few lean years around the rink. What has come from that first-round selection of Girgensons is anything but glory for both the player and the franchise. Girgensons had a quick introduction to the league, becoming a full-time player just a year after being drafted. In 2013-14, Girgensons’ first full NHL...
