Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - It was locker cleanout day for the Sabres and there was a dark cloud hanging over that arena. Phil Housley didn’t want to get into too many specifics, but Ryan O’Reilly was about as honest as any player that I have ever heard. Many players on this team have done nothing but...

It's been a more than disappointing season for the Buffalo Sabres. With their loss on Wednesday night to the Ottawa Senators, the Sabres will finish the 2017-18 season in dead last. It's the third time in five seasons that the Sabres will finish as the worst team in the standings. TSN's Pierre...
