Buffalo wins third on the the trot, ends streak of futility against St. Louis Ryan O’Reilly scored the gamewinner on a 5-on-3 powerplay late in the second period as the Buffalo Sabres finally solved the St. Louis Blues to win 3-2 at the KeyBank Center earlier today. Earlier in the day the Sabres had waived Taylor Fedun as Cody Franson returned to the team. Fedun has no goals and seven assists in 25 games for Buffalo this season. Nick Baptiste also had the call-up from Rochester after Sam Reinhart was laid low by the flu bug, likely the same one that had Evander Kane down earlier this...

Avalanche sink to new depths, blanked 2-0 by the Sabres.

The current losing streak reaches five as the Avalanche are shutout for the 9th time this season In a season that can't get much worse or embarrassing, the Colorado Avalanche reached new depths in their 2-0 loss against the Buffalo Sabres. It was their 9th shutout of the season and 5th consecutive loss but that doesn't even begin to describe the impotence and listlessness withessed on ice in this contest. After an encouraging start right out of the gate, the Avs then proceeded to take three penalties and gave all the momentum to the Sabres. It was inevitable when Sam Reinhart scored on the...

Recap: Sabres beat woeful Avalanche

Recap: Sabres beat woeful Avalanche

Buffalo rarely gets to play a team worse than them It’s only been once in a blue moon that the Buffalo Sabres get to comprehensively outshoot and beat an NHL team. You can almost make the argument that the Colorado Avalanche are barely an NHL team too, but the Sabres tonight outworked and deservedly beat the Avs 2-0 with Robin Lehner getting another shutout. Surprisingly, Colorado started the first period strong, and were the better side for the first half of it, until they started taking penalties. Buffalo had three power plays in the first period and had the shot advantage 12-7, but...

Robin Lehner stands tall, Buffalo Sabres beat Ottawa Senators 3-2

Roses are red, violets are blue, Sens fall to the Sabres, 3-2 In an extremely high-offense game for the Ottawa Senators, they couldn’t get past the brick wall Robin Lehner, who finished the night with 39 saves and a .951 SV%. The Sens managed to get 50 unblocked shot attempts and 37 shots on goal at 5v5, which are both team highs on the season. Every Senator also managed to get a shot on goal, minus Chris Neil. The rapid firing still wasn’t enough, as the Buffalo Sabres took this game 3-2, for their 8th consecutive non-regulation loss against the Senators. Chris Wideman was a game time...

Buffalo earned a big divisional win tonight in Ottawa thanks to another third period comeback. Chocolates, flowers, a fancy dinner, or a comeback Sabres victory?

According to the Sabres broadcast, it was Ottawa’s first loss in franchise history on Valentine’s Day. The Sabres got off to a quick start,...

Full coverage of the game between the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres on 14 February 2017. The Ottawa Senators will look to creep closer to the Atlantic Division title when they host the Buffalo Sabres tonight. Since the Senators beat the Islanders on Saturday afternoon, the Montréal Canadiens lost consecutive games in regulation. That has left Ottawa six points behind Montréal with five games in hand, giving the Senators a small lead in points per game. The Sabres are coming off a 4-2 loss to Vancouver and are two points ahead of the Red Wings for last place in the division. They...
