Tweet of the Moment 2/4/16

Timeout Boston with 31.2 seconds left and faceoff in their zone. 2-2. — Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) February 5, 2016 I would certainly say that this is a great time to reevaluate their place in the world. Tied with Buffalo and a faceoff in your own zone is pretty bottom of the barrel. Get well soon, Bruins.

Jack Eichel making a push for Calder Trophy

Don’t look now, but the Calder Trophy race us suddenly a lot closer than everyone may have originally thought. For the bulk of the season, Chicago Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin has been the clear-cut favorite.

WATCH: KHL player lights stick on fire at All-Star shootout event

The hot new expression on social media these days? “IT’S LIT!” A minor-league hockey all-star event just got lit — in a literal way. When it comes to all-star games in sports, the luster and intrigue has dwindled for a variety of reasons over the years. To some, the home-run derby has long since lost its cool factor. The NBA’s slam-dunk competition still seems to be a...

Buffalo's Ristolainen finally growing into his big shoes with the Sabres

Dan Bylsma is surprised the Sabres haven’t scored more goals

The Buffalo Sabres don’t light the lamp very often. Throughout 2015-16, the Sabres have been near the basement in terms of goals scored and continually struggle to put more than one or two past the opposing goalie. Head coach Dan Bylsma is surprised to see this outcome considering there are several players on the roster who have historically found the back of the net. Via the...

Who says grand romantic gestures don’t work in this day and age?
