A come from behind win against the East-leading Philadelphia Flyers is an event to be celebrated. Some even declared the weekend a success just by getting these 2 points. While that’s true enough from a certain point of view, I’d like to see Buffalo take the playoff spot by the throat and not let [...]
You’re still smiling about last night’s game, admit it. Nerves to start, especially after Atlanta tied it, but Terry Pegula got his first win. The Thrashers are a team the Sabres should beat, one that was struggling as much if not moreso than Buffalo the past few games, and they took care of business.
It doesn’t get much more exciting than that, does it? Enroth weathers a storm as the Sabres give up 18 shots in the first period, with Stafford and and Pominville scoring to tie the game up and send it to a shootout. And what a shootout it was, 10 rounds, and coming back from [...]
Really, you just can’t know how a team, any team, will respond to an injury to a key player. Many of us wrote off the season after Roy got hurt (myself included), but all the Sabres have done since then is go on a run. Since the 5-2 loss in Calgary, Buffalo has gone [...]
Paul Gaustad has taken a ton of flack, really dating back to the end of last year, for not contributing more on the score sheet. Last night had to be pretty satisfying then, as the Goose made some plays (and got a lucky bounce of Dan Boyle’s melon) including keeping a close eye on [...]
October record: 3-7-2
Overall record: 3-7-2
Buffalo came into the season with some expectations, as a playoff team from the year before with it’s ‘core’ intact (for better or worse). I felt that the changes that were made should at least be even swaps.
So what happened? Unfortunately, there’s quite a few things that have [...]
Buffalo is visiting Flyers for the first time tonight, with a 7:30pm game on everyone’s favorite channel, Versus. Buffalo is flying high after a resounding win on Saturday against the Kovy-less Devils. The boys are on the mend, with Shaone Morrisonn and Craig Rivet both practicing and Pominville steadily improving. Only Rivet *might* play [...]
The Sabres currently have a dismal 1-4-1 record, 5th in the NE, and the panic button is being mashed by some people. It’s still way too early to do it, though. Their schedule is busy, some of the parts have changed, so there are some expected hiccups. This lull from Sunday to Wednesday is [...]
Buffalo is hosting their 40th anniversary celebration tonight, as 40 years ago they opened the season against the Montreal Canadiens. Members of the Knox family are in, Buffalo is wearing their whites at home, and more. Should be a fun time.
Shaone Morissonn is out with a groin injury, so either Weber or Butler [...]
Just a friendly reminder that Buffalo lost (regulation and OT/SO) 37 games last year en route to winning their division. They 3 times lost 4 or more games in a row, including a stretch of 6 in a row. I get the feeling they are still adjusting to new linemates/defense partners, and that certainly [...]
