Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Jason Botterill spoke to the media and Buffalo hockey fans on Sunday. Botterill said in February that there wouldn’t be a coaching change and then the Pegulas both spoke in March about Jason making it clear that there wasn’t going to be a change.

The Sabres are 23 points out of the last postseason spot in the East with two games left. Last year, they finished 35 points out. In...

Before I get to your tweets, I want to mention one of mine from earlier today: The Sabres finished the 2017-18 season with 62 points. Since then, how many NHL teams have changed their coach?

Unbelievable. I was thinking of different words to describe the last four months of the Buffalo Sabres season and I think unbelievable is the best fit. As a Buffalo sports fan, you've experienced more than your fair share of suffering. How many times have you thought "it can't get worse than this"...

11 months ago, the Buffalo Bills selected Josh Allen in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. The team also had quarterbacks Nathan Peterman and A.J. McCarron on the roster.
