New Jersey Devils at Buffalo Sabres: Game Preview #71

Before taking one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the New Jersey Devils must visit the worst: Buffalo Sabres. This game preview notes what changes the Devils will make to their lineup and the Sabres' hot goaltender.

Sabres at Bruins recap: HOW IS THIS HAPPENING

The Sabres pull a win out of their you-know-where to beat the Bruins in a shootout 2-1. Yet again, the Buffalo Sabres were outmatched by a superior opponent, but somehow managed to steal a win thanks to a red hot goaltender....a goaltender who was one of the worst in the NHL before being traded to Buffalo and who hadn't won a single game since January 13th. Anders Lindback was traded out of Dallas in exchange for Jhonas Enroth because he was so bad that he simply had to be expunged from their organization. With the Stars this season, Lindback had a .875 save percentage and was allowing over...

Game 70: Buffalo Sabres at Boston Bruins, 7:30pm

Battle of the Backups, as Steady Sveddy takes on Hackettology. Tonight we invite Buffalo into our homes and our lives. The Sabres have lost seven straight games, but took two of their last three contests to a shootout before grabbing the loser point. While Buffalo is in full metal tank mode, they're playing back-up netminder Matt Hackett, who you may not know but you should, if for no other reason than his seriously awesome mask. "@BuffaloSabres: Matt Hackett's new mask. #OneBuffalo (@Hockeyequipmgr) #BUFvsWSH pic.twitter.com/dF1jkYPgzj" can't get over how awesome this is — Eric Hunter...

How will Anders Lindback look on back-to-back nights? Ted Nolan and the Sabres coaching staff made a late change to the line-up, opting to go with Anders Lindback instead of Matt Hackett in goal. Will Lindback be able to overcome the task of two games in two nights? 2. Can Johan Larsson stay hot? The young Sabres forward...

Sabres vs. Capitals recap: Loser points

The Sabres made it to overtime, but lost to the Capitals 4-3 in a shootout. The Buffalo Sabres have spent an entire season cementing themselves not just as a bad team, but as one of the worst teams the NHL has ever seen. We, the Sabres fans, have suffered through two full seasons of historically bad hockey, all the with the goal of finishing 30th this year and guaranteeing themselves a player who will make sure they're never this bad again. And just when we're coming down to the final stretch, the Sabres decide to play one of their better games of the year and ruin everything. Johan Larsson...

Rangers vs. Sabres Recap: Skapski, Yandle Help Rangers Top Sabres 2-0 in Buffalo

The New York Rangers earned their fourth consecutive win this evening as they topped the Buffalo Sabres by a final score of 2-0. The New York Rangers continued to roll tonight, and earned their fourth consecutive win with a 2-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Mackenzie Skapski, appearing in just his second NHL game, earned his first career shutout in the win, and extended his record to 2-0-0. As a result, this is the first time in franchise history that three separate goaltenders have earned at least one shutout during a single season. In addition to Skapski's milestone, Keith Yandle also...

Sabres vs. Rangers recap:

Having watched so much bad hockey this season, I decided to focus mostly on what the Rangers were doing tonight, and how they were doing it better than the Sabres. Turns out, as most of you probably expected, the Rangers do just about everything better than the Sabres. That's not to say New York played a perfect game - far from it - but even though they had their mistakes it was easy to see why they're so much better than the Sabres. The thing that stood out the most tonight was the Rangers far superior accuracy, decision making, and strategy in zone exits and entries. On most occasions, the...

Girgensons, Kaleta could return this year, but should they?

With the race to 30th as tight as ever, we wonder whether it's worth it to encourage Sabres players to try to get back on the ice for the final games. The Buffalo Sabres had an optional practice yesterday, and many players took advantage of the day off, leaving the Sabres practice roster even more thin than usual. However, optional practice schedules aren't the only reason the Sabres practice roster has been so thin lately - they also have a few players currently rehabbing from injury. Yesterday, it was revealed by Ted Nolan that two of those players could return before the end of the...

Sabres vs. Maple Leafs Recap: Sabres Get The Loser Point In Shootout Loss

The Sabres and Leafs battled in a mini tank war that saw both teams take a point with the Leafs earning the extra point with a 4-3 shootout win. Tonight's contest features two teams in free fall, both inevitably sinking to the bottom for the rest of the year. Sometimes that can result in a really fun, sloppy hockey game, but other times it can be a snooze-fest. That quote comes from our very own Andy Boron in today's preview. For 20 minutes, the Sabres and Leafs appeared to be on their way to a full on boat race, with both teams scoring twice in the opening period. But, offensively...
