Sabres third line has become an anchor

Sabres third line has become an anchor

The line of Tage Thompson, Vladimir Sobotka, and Jason Pominville has been a major problem for the Sabres It’s not a controversial statement to state that the Buffalo Sabres top line has carried the mail on offense for the majority of this season. The Jack Eichel, Jeff Skinner, and now Sam Reinhart line is the driving force of the offense. The second line centered by Casey Mittelstadt has been up and down this season. While the fourth line that is usually a combination of Johan Larsson, Zemgus Girgensons, Evan Rodrigues, and Patrik Berglund before he decided to go AWOL, has played very...

Matt Tennyson has been returned to the AHL

Matt Tennyson has been returned to the AHL

Sabres returned defenseman Matt Tennyson to the Amerks The Buffalo Sabres announced this morning that they assigned defenseman Matt Tennyson back to Rochester Amerks of the AHL. It’s no secrect that the 28-year-old struggled in his four games with the Sabres this season. It was particularly bad against the Washington Capitals on Saturday when he played a little over nine minutes and was on the ice for three goals against. Phil Housley no longer has confidence in Tennyson and the Sabres had to recall Brendan Guhle to play last night in Boston. This is probably a good indication one of...

Welcome Jack Eichel to the Hart conversation

Welcome Jack Eichel to the Hart conversation

Sabres forward Jack Eichel has entered into the NHL’s elite status this season The Buffalo Sabres are having a surprising bounce back season through 34 games. Entering play tonight they sit alone in second place in the Atlantic Division and are 11 points clear of a playoff spot. There are a variety of reasons for the Sabres turnaround, but the primary reason is the play of their captain Jack Eichel. The 22-year-old center has 14 goals and 45 points through 34 games. That puts him on pace for 34 goals and 109 points this season. He’s the driver on one of the best lines in the NHL this...

State of the defense: Sabres missing McCabe

State of the defense: Sabres missing McCabe

As injuries have piled-up on the blue line, Jake McCabe’s value has been made even more evident in his absence Over the past eight games, the state of Buffalo Sabres’ defense has been a major talking point among fans. With players like Casey Nelson, Marco Scandella, Lawrence Pilut and Jake McCabe all missing time, the blue line depth in Buffalo has certainly been tested as of late. After what was reported as a “maintenance day” when he missed practice earlier in the week, Pilut was held out of yesterday’s contest with the Washington Capitals. As a result, fans in Western New York...

Recap: Sabres win a hard-fought battle in Boston

The Sabres scored late to take the lead and emerge victorious in Boston on the second half of a back-to-back The Buffalo Sabres’ 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins this evening was exactly the type of effort that separates a playoff team, from a pretender. In their second game in as many nights, the boys in blue-and-gold pushed through to the finish line, notching a late tally to seal the deal at TD Garden. The first 12 minutes of the opening period were extremely even with both teams playing tough. Though neither side relented a goal in the first, the Bruins certainly had their fair...

Sabres Recall Brendan Guhle from AHL

Sabres Recall Brendan Guhle from AHL

Lawrence Pilut goes on injured reserve, adding to injury woes The good news for Buffalo Sabres fans this Sunday afternoon: the Sabres announced they’ve recalled defenseman Brendan Guhle from the AHL’s Rochester Americans. The bad news: the recall is due, at least in part, to Lawrence Pilut being placed on injured reserve. It’s the first recall of the season for the 21-year-old Guhle, who has appeared in 21 NHL games since 2016. He’s registered five assists and 41 shots on goal. Guhle has spent this season with the Amerks, appearing in 25 games with the team. He's been a big part of...

Starting to get some clarity on Berglund

We’re starting to get some clarity on the situation with Patrik Berglund Yesterday we got some unexpected news with the Buffalo Sabres announcing they’ve suspended indefinitely forward Patrik Berglund for failure to report. Roughly 24 hours later, we’re starting to get some clarity on what is happening. The veteran Swede was acquired by the Sabres on July 1st as one of the pieces in exchange for Ryan O’Reilly. According to Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet, the relationship never got off on the right foot. On Hockey Night in Canada’s ‘Saturday Headlines’ segment, Friedman,...

Recap: Sabres impressive in nation’s capital but can’t collect two points

Buffalo held their own against one of the league’s best teams but ultimately fell in a shootout. Heading into the nation’s capital on Saturday night, the Buffalo Sabres were looking to continue their ascent up the Eastern Conference standings. Unfortunately, Buffalo fell to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals in a shootout. On the surface, a loss is never ideal but when digging a little deeper, this is precisely the game that many wanted to see from the Sabres. Buffalo struck first – early on – thanks to a very hot Jack Eichel in the right place, at the right...
