Sabres’ Dmitry Kulikov close to playing

BUFFALO – Sabres defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, out the last 12 games with a lower-back bruise, practiced this morning and could return this week, coach Dan Bylsma said. “See how he responds to that,” Bylsma said inside HarborCenter. “But it bodes well for him seeing some time this week.” Kulikov, 25, has been dogged by the injury all season after getting knocked into an open...

Zach Bogosian Has Earned A Spot On The Blueline For The Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres have a few players that fans love to hate.  Adam pitches in his two cents on the blueliner from Massena, NY. Am I the only guy in 716 that likes Zach “Bogo” Bogosian? I know that Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray must like him, otherwise he wouldn’t have traded for him in […] Zach Bogosian Has Earned A Spot On The Blueline For The Buffalo Sabres - Sabre Noise...

Buffalo Has Become Hockey Heaven

When Terry Pegula purchased the Buffalo Sabres in February of 2011, fans were a bit skeptical. Nobody in the area had really heard of the East Resources owner from northern Pennsylvania. However, Pegula almost instantly removed all doubts fans had, invigorating the Buffalo faithful by saying that from that point on, “the Buffalo Sabres’ reason for existence will be to win a...

Video: Robin Lehner makes incredible save, leads to Sabres victory

Robin Lehner of the Sabres has given us an early save of the year candidate against the Canadiens on Saturday night as he robbed Montreal’s Alex Galchenyuk, who had a wide open net … briefly. Most impressive was that the save came in overtime, and that it was followed by a Zach Bogosian goal to win it just 18 seconds later for Buffalo. It’s about as impressive and clutch a...

Buffalo Sabres fans were given more than a glimmer of hope in their netminder tonight in the team’s second straight OT win. “Oh. My. Word!” Yes, Buffalo Sabres fans – I am daring to quote the legendary announcer Rick Jeanneret tonight, because let’s face it: there is no way that I can improve upon RJ’s […] Robin Lehner Makes Save Of The Year For The Buffalo Sabres,...

Preview: Habs Host Sabres in Atlantic Showdown

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price – (Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports) Things may not be going well for the 18-18-9 Buffalo Sabres, but neither are they for their hosts Saturday night, the Atlantic Division-leading Montreal Canadiens.

Recap: Special teams heroics give Sabres 3-2 win in OT

The Sabres defended an overtime power play, then scored on their own for a thrilling 3-2 win. With the penalty kill that the Buffalo Sabres have displayed over the past few months, every kill is a terrifying adventure in waiting for the hammer to get dropped. Taking a penalty in overtime? Forget about it, game over. Unless it isn’t. Kyle Okposo took a hooking penalty that might...

Sabres’ Nick Deslauriers seeing less action

BUFFALO – Chat with Nick Deslauriers for a few minutes, and if the subject turns to fighting, the affable Sabres winger usually perks up. Deslauriers, 25, relishes his job as the Sabres’ chief protector. In his 196-game NHL career, he has 15 fights and 12 goals. “That’s what I want to bring, just safety for all the guys that are on the ice with me,” Deslauriers said Friday...

Buffalo Sabres Need To Make A Significant Move To Prove They Are Serious About Rebuild

The Buffalo Sabres seemed committed to the idea of making the playoffs this offseason; if the team is truly committed to such a goal, a move needs to be made, now. It is a secret to exactly nobody that the Buffalo Sabres had their sights set on the playoffs before the 2016-17 season began.

Sabres’ Evander Kane one of NHL’s hottest scorers

BUFFALO – Looking back, Sabres winger Evander Kane acknowledges that, yes, he probably rushed back to the lineup after breaking four ribs opening night. Following an 11-game absence over three weeks, Kane returned and generated almost nothing. Seven weeks ago, he was one of the NHL’s biggest disappointments, still goalless in 12 appearances as the calendar turned to December...

Video: Evander Kane speared Ben Bishop after his attempt was stopped

Evander Kane always seems to be at the center of some sort of controversy. This time it’s for spearing Ben Bishop after Bishop stopped Kane’s wraparound attempt during Buffalo’s game against Tampa Bay on Thursday night. Kane’s spear wasn’t the most vicious of spears ever seen in the NHL, but it still crossed a line. He was frustrated after Bishop stopped his attempt and...

Total Eclipse of the Reinhart

Apparently January 10th is Sam Reinhart day. Last year, he scored his first career hat trick on January 10th and he followed it up with another three point night yesterday. Reinhart scored a goal and two assists with four shots in the 4-1 win over the Flyers. It almost feels a bit disappointing because he missed a wide open net that I'd expect a high school player to bury. Regardless...

Evander Kane and Kevan Miller have a serious Twitter beef

Buffalo Sabres left winger Evander Kane is a controversial player, to say the least, one who seems to always end up on the wrong side of the headlines. After the Sabres’ loss Saturday against the Boston Bruins, Kane was at it again, this time calling out Bruins’ defenseman Kevan Miller on Twitter.
