(WGR 550) - I think the thing that bothered me the most about the Sabres' fourth straight loss was there was very little urgency or intensity in their game. For the first five minutes of the game and the last 10 minutes, they worked hard, possessed the puck and played in the offensive zone. Other...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - There’s not much to say about the Sabres' 1-0 loss to the Islanders. It certainly wasn’t from a lack of effort.
