(WGR 550) - The Sabres imploded in the third period on Monday night, but playing well in the second and getting outscored 2-1 got things started. The Sabres outshot Tampa Bay 16-5 in the second period and got the period going fast. Jimmy Vesey walked in on a breakaway and scored his first goal as a...

(WGR 550) - The Sabres went on the road and played the top-two teams in the Atlantic Division and split the four points. It’s a shame for them that they didn’t take three points or all four because Buffalo played its best game of the season in Boston and didn’t get a point. The Sabres were...

(WGR 550) - The Sabres have just one win in nine games and things don’t get any easier with games coming up in Boston, Florida and Tampa Bay. Buffalo hasn’t scored a power play goal in eight games, and the penalty kill has given one up in six straight games. I will say the Sabres were pretty good...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres only had two forward choices in Rochester to call up, so Ralph Krueger has decided to go with seven defensemen. John Gilmour will alternate between forward and defense. Krueger said this is probably a one-game thing, “We’re quite optimistic that somebody will be...

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Sabres got some terrible news as Kyle Okposo is once again fighting a concussion. Okposo went through a very dark place a few years ago where he didn’t know if he’d be able to function as a husband and a father. Zach Bogosian is of course worried, “First and foremost he’...
