(WGR 550) - It was back-to-back overtime games in Vancouver and Edmonton, but I thought the Sabres gutted out the win over the Oilers on Sunday. Buffalo got it started right, scoring two goals in the first 10:43 of the game, but never scored again in regulation. It looked like they were getting...

(WGR 550) - With the Sabres losing 6-5 in Vancouver on Saturday, I think you can guess that neither team got good goaltending. Carter Hutton started the season 6-0-0 and has lost nine straight since. He had another rough outing in Vancouver, and in those nine losses, he has a goals-against average...

(WGR 550) - If you looked at the final score in Calgary on Thursday and the shots on goal, you would’ve thought it was a great, even game. The Flames won 4-3 and the shots were 29-29, but it really wasn’t a good game. The Sabres played for maybe 25 minutes, at the most, in this game and were lucky...

(WGR 550) - The Sabres have gotten things straightened around lately, going 3-1-2. Buffalo is in Calgary on Thursday, and one of the two overtime losses came to the Flames. Johan Larsson thought that despite getting only one point, they played well against the Flames, “I thought we had a pretty...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Recently, Ralph Krueger put Johan Larsson between Jeff Skinner and Conor Sheary. Of course, all the amateur coaches on Twitter howled that the Sabres coach had no clue what he was doing just like they did with Phil Housley, Dan Bylsma, Ted Nolan and Lindy Ruff. It’s...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Marcus Johansson came into Monday’s game with just four goals in 20 games. The forward thought he’d be able to do better in his new home, but he said he’s been having some problems, “My hands haven’t felt right and things haven’t felt like myself with the puck, and it’s...

The last time these two teams met, the Buffalo Sabres blew the doors off of the New Jersey Devils with a 7-2 win at the home opener on Oct. 5. Monday night was more of the same as the Sabres put another beat down on the Devils at KeyBank Center with an impressive 7-1 win. Sabres captain Jack Eichel...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - In the game against Ottawa back on Nov. 16, Kyle Okposo came off the bench for his shift and accidently ran into defenseman Ron Hainsey. Okposo has missed eight games with a concussion and won’t play against New Jersey. However, he was on the ice with his teammates for the...

(WGR 550) - The Sabres pulled up their boot straps and played two really good games against Toronto this weekend, taking three of four points. Buffalo won its home game 6-4, while the Maple Leafs took the rematch in Toronto, 2-1 in overtime. I really liked Buffalo’s game on Saturday. Buffalo went...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres had never lost six straight games to Toronto and they still haven’t after coming out of Friday with a big come from behind victory. I think it made it more fun for the fans in the building that Toronto had a 2-0 second period lead only to see Buffalo score four...
