GAME RECAP: Islanders 2 @ Sabres 1

And the home woes continue for the Buffalo Sabres (13-10-1). You can blame the injuries. You can really blame whoever you want. But if the Sabres want to compete for the Stanley Cup, they need to take care of business […]

GAME PREVIEW: Islanders @ Sabres (Tuesday, November 29, 2011)

Another day, another home game for the Buffalo Sabres (13-9-1). Buffalo can’t seem to crack the .500 mark at home this season, compiling a 6-6-1 record at the First Niagara Center in 2011. On Tuesday night they face off against […]

GAME RECAP: Capitals 1 @ Sabres 5

For the first time in recent memory, it must have felt good to be in the Buffalo Sabres (13-9-1) after this 5-1 victory over the Washington Capitals (12-9-1). In many ways, these are two very similar teams right now. Both […]

GAME PREVIEW: Capitals @ Sabres (Saturday, November 26, 2011)

There’s really no magic formula here for the Sabres. It would be nice to start the game with a lead, instead of being down 2-0 or worse. Of course, that didn’t work out so well on Tuesday night against Boston, […]

GAME RECAP: Sabres 1 @ Blue Jackets 5

There are debacles and then there are debacles. The Buffalo Sabres (12-9-1) traveled to face the Columbus Blue Jackets (6-13-3) and thoroughly got outplayed in all facets of the game which led to a 5-1 defeat. The Sabres one-upped their […]

GAME PREVIEW – Sabres @ Blue Jackets (Friday, November 25, 2011)

On Friday night, the Buffalo Sabres (12-8-1) travel to Columbus face the Blue Jackets (5-13-3). Buffalo needs to rebound from a tough overtime loss to the Boston Bruins in Buffalo on Wednesday night. The Sabres are currently 7-2-0 on the […]

GAME RECAP: Bruins 4 @ Sabres 3 (SO)

It always has to be better to win a point then to not win a point, right? The Buffalo Sabres (12-8-1) lost in overtime (shootout) for the first time this season to the Boston Bruins (13-7-0) who won their 10th […]

GAME PREVIEW – Bruins @ Sabres (Wednesday, November 23, 2011)

Expect a charged atmosphere in the First Niagara Center tonight. Not only do the Buffalo Sabres (12-8-0) need to defeat the defending world champion Boston Bruins (12-7-0), they need to take care of some unfinished business. Last time these teams […]

GAME RECAP: Coyotes 4 @ Sabres 2

While at home, the Buffalo Sabres (12-8-0) play in an above-average arena filled to capacity with some of the best fans in sports. So it’s hard to imagine that the Sabres are truly better on the road than they are […]

GAME PREVIEW – Coyotes @ Sabres (Saturday, November 19, 2011)

What reward did the Buffalo Sabres (12-7-0) earn with a hard fought victory in Carolina on Friday night? Why, the right to run right home to Buffalo to face the Phoenix Coyotes (9-5-3) on Saturday night. If this sounds like […]

GAME RECAP: Sabres 1 @ Hurricanes 0

My inner Homer Simpson gave a little “woo-hoo!” at the end of this game. The Buffalo Sabres (12-7-0) once again shook off a big loss and responded with a good win. In this case, they defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (6-11-3) […]

GAME PREVIEW – Sabres @ Hurricanes (Friday, November 18, 2011)

For any sports team, it is always best to put the past behind you. That might be the very recent past, or the slightly more distant past. For the Buffalo Sabres (11-7-0), none of if is particularly appealing. The Sabres […]
