Sabres send Sam Reinhart to juniors

Not surprisingly, the Sabres decided another year of juniors was the best move for their top pick. The Sabres announced this morning that they have sent second overall pick Sam Reinhart back to the Kootenay Ice of the WHL. Reinhart had played his nine games this season, meaning that the Sabres needed to decide whether or not they would burn the first year of his ELC by playing him a tenth game. In his nine games Reinhart notched only one assist and three shots, and was featured on the fourth line for very short amounts of time. He only played seven minutes in last night's game against...

Sabres vs. Bruins recap: Sabres make it to OT, fall to Boston 3-2

A better effort earned a loser point, but in the end the Buffalo Sabres fell to the Bruins 3-2 in OT. The effort was better, though the stats might not show it. Just a few days after a horrendous outing against the Leafs, the Buffalo Sabres came out with a solid showing (we won't go so far as to call it strong) tonight against an admittedly depleted Boston Bruins. Though it only resulted in an OT loss, tonight was a positive step in a few different areas for the Sabres. The game started with a bang, as Chris Stewart challenged Milan Lucic (!) to a fight less than a minute in - both players...

Second period Public Skate: 0-0...really?

The Bruins did not score against the Sabres. OK fight from Lucic, decent play from a couple guys...but no goals. CARRY ON.

Public Skate: Bruins vs. Sabres

The Bruins hope to get back on track against the awful, awful Buffalo Sabres. Last time the B's played Buffalo, they got headed in the right direction with a 4-0 win. What about this time?

Amerks update: Splitting the weekend

Amerks split home and home series against Adirondack to move to a 4-2-0-0 record with a contest again Hamilton in Buffalo looming. It's been suggested, throughout history, that the "apple doesn't fall far from the tree." For example, my dad has a wealth of hockey knowledge that he has passed down to my sisters and I, and us to our offspring (well, my sisters to their offspring, and me to anyone who will listen. I, blessedly, have no children.) As it turns out, sometimes that apple theory applies to ACTUAL hockey, too. The Amerks did some things this weekend. They weren't all good, kind of...

Maple Leafs 4 vs Sabres 0: Roughalo

The Maple Leafs absolutely beat down an AHL-calibre Buffalo Sabres in a complete laugher.

Connor McDavid shatters hockey pucks

The top prospect in the NHL draft shows off his man strength. After the abysmal performance by the Buffalo Sabres last night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, I think we could all use a pick-me-up. And today, that comes in the form of yet another amazing moment from Connor McDavid, courtesy of his assistant coach in Erie, former Sabre Jay McKee. First time @VinceLaise & I have ever seen this before. Mid practice, McDavid shot off the crossbar, puck exploded... pic.twitter.com/q6TYrenHdX — Jay McKee (@JayMcKee74) October 28, 2014 Yep, that's McDavid shooting so hard he shatters...

Sabres at Leafs recap: Sabres take just ten shots in SHOCKING 4-0 loss

Buffalo was outshot 37-10 as the Leafs rolled to an easy-peasy victory. There's bad, and then there's bad, and tonight the Buffalo Sabres were whichever one of those is worse. The Sabres were outshot by the Toronto Maple Leafs 37-10 en route to a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of their division rivals. How pathetic was Buffalo's offense? The Sabres managed just ten total shots in the entire game -  posting their lowest shot total EVER and becoming the first team since 2008 to manage such a low shot toal - as they were shut out by the not-very-good Leafs 4-0. Their offense was so anemic that...

Sharktoon: Post Game Reaction, Buffalo Style

What is it about Buffalo that confounds the Sharks? (The Buffalo is the only known land based predator of the Great White Shark) The Sharks have played the Buffalo Sabres 31 times in their 23 year history. Of those 22 have been losses for the Sharks, 2 were ties, and 7 were wins.  That's a 73% win rate for the Sabres over 23 years. Ouch! As crushing as the loss was and is, it's par for the course when it comes to playing the Sabres. What is it about Buffalo that confounds the Sharks?The Sharks have been a much better team for a long time now, so why do the Sabres still hold such sway...

Sabres at Sharks recap: Buffalo beats San Jose again 2-1

The Sabres improbable mastery of the superior Sharks continues. I don't know how and I don't know why, but when the diminutive Buffalo Sabres play the superior San Jose Sharks, one team continues to dominate time and time again. But this story has a twist - in this tale, it's David who dominates Goliath. The Sabres beat the Sharks for the seventh straight time tonight by a score of 2-1. Yes, you read that right, the Buffalo Sabres scored two - TWO! - goals for the first time since their only other win this season on October 14 against Carolina. Cody Hodgson and Nicolas Deslauriers each...

Sabres win seventh straight against Sharks

The Buffalo Sabres have beaten the Sharks in their last seven meetings after a 2-1 victory on the road Saturday. Losing to the Buffalo Sabres is nothing new for long-time, short-time or medium-time Sharks fans. Losing to the Sabres while playing bad hockey for the vast majority of the game? Well, that's a little concerning. While San Jose had a game stolen from them last year against Buffalo, the Sharks had no such excuse in their loss to the McDavids on Saturday afternoon. All three goals fit inside of a 2:27 window in the third period, with Buffalo notching the first two tallies. A...

29th & 30th in the NHL will make all the difference in Draft

29th & 30th in the NHL will make all the difference in Draft

Big draft permutations between the two positions, despite the rule changes. If you weren't 'all-in' on the tank brigade quite yet, this should change your mind. When the NHL announced that they would be changing the draft rules for the 2015 and 2016 seasons a few months ago, Buffalo Sabres fans were worried that their odds of drafting Connor McDavid would be drastically shortened. That didn't quite happen for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, with the last place team's odds cut to 20% from 25% chance of winning the first pick.

Sabres at Kings recap: Another game, another shutout

For the third time in four games, the Sabres did not score a goal as the Kings take down the Sabres 2-0. Another night, another shutout for the Buffalo Sabres. But unlike Ted Nolan's first tenure in Buffalo, the Sabres keep finding themselves on the wrong end of these lopsided games as they lose to the Los Angeles Kings 2-0. The Sabres have now scored just one goal in their last four games, and a grand total of nine goals in their eight games this season. They have a -19 goal differential, and are on pace to shatter their league-worst differential from last season of -91.  Of course, they...
