Buffalo Sabres Game Day: Can The Sabres Run Amok On The Canucks?

The Buffalo Sabres face an undefeated foe on the back-end of a road trip – is there any chance for a W under these circumstances? Before the 2016-17 regular season even started, we here at Sabre Noise had October pegged as a difficult challenge for the Buffalo Sabres. With only three home games and a […] Buffalo Sabres Game Day: Can The Sabres Run Amok On The Canucks? - Sabre...

Crease Crash Course: Weak Goals Tarnish Strong Game

The final score really doesn’t properly reflect the way Robin Lehner played against Calgary on Tuesday. In fact, his 3.30 GAA and .890 SV% don’t properly reflect the way Lehner has played through Buffalo’s first three games. It’s also far to early to determine whether or not Lehner is any good as there has only been three games. Make no mistake, plenty of responsibility from...

Buffalo Sabres Need To Muzzle Robin Lehner

The Buffalo Sabres’ netminder needs to worry more about righting the ship, and less on whining about officiating. When your team manages to blow a one-goal lead not once, not twice, but three times in a game – which is exactly what the Buffalo Sabres did Tuesday night against the Calgary Flames – it’s easy […] Buffalo Sabres Need To Muzzle Robin Lehner - Sabre Noise - Sabre...

Amerks’ Tyson Strachan offers Sabres depth

BUFFALO – Tyson Strachan’s only human, you know. So while the veteran said his confidence never wavered looking for work during the summer, thoughts about his uncertain future crept into his head. As the weeks dragged on without a contract, the gritty former Sabres defenseman wondered if he might have to play overseas or complete his degree at Ohio State University. “I’d...

Recap: Sabres lose third period lead, then lose to Flames in OT 4-3

The Sabres get one point in a game where they probably should have had two. As a young team looking to grow from rebuilding to a serious playoff contender, the Buffalo Sabres need to learn how to close out games. Last night was a perfect opportunity - entering the third period with a 2-1 lead on the road, the Sabres could have shut the Flames down to pick up two more points on...

Sabres dipping into the prospect pool early

It’s no secret that the Buffalo Sabres have been swimming at the bottom of the barrel for several years now. The benefit to that is that this means that they are able to draft early every year. They’ve collected some pretty solid talent, most notably the currently injured Jack Eichel, the runner-up prize to Connor McDavid last year. The Sabres have 6 players born in 1994 or later...

Zemgus Girgensons’ Struggles Continue

The 2015-16 season was a year to forget for Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons. He missed some time with injuries and had a career low in offensive production in his third season. After signing a one-year “prove-it” contract this offseason the 22-year-old hoped to get off to a hot start and have a bounce back 2016-17 season. Unfortunately for Girgensons, the struggles have...

Sabres Commit to Murray with Extension

Tim Murray will get a chance to finish what he started. A man of few words who would prefer to let his actions speak for him, the seventh Buffalo Sabres General Manager in team history agreed to a multi-year extension with the club last week that will allow the Quebec native to continue to shape and mold an organization that has missed the playoffs each of the past five seasons....

Former Sabres goalie Chad Johnson happy with Flames

All along, Chad Johnson said, returning to Buffalo was his first choice. The goalie thrived in his only season with the Sabres, becoming the team’s backbone while playing a career-high 45 games. But when free agency opened in June, Johnson quickly learned how much his career year had impressed other NHL teams. Johnson, 30, said he talked to six or seven suitors, including his hometown...

Crease Crash Course: Franson Hangs Lehner on Far Pad Shot

Maybe the season isn’t over after all! The return of Kyle Okposo and Dmitri Kulikov gave the Sabres a much needed shot in the arm for their trip west. Kulikov was out for both Edmonton goals but also did well distributing the puck on the breakout throughout the game. His first pass is terrific and I suspect his impact will be that much stronger if and when he’s paired with Rasmus...

Evander Kane left the Buffalo Sabres’ home opener and was hospitalized following a nasty fall into the boards. Kane was pursuing a loose puck in Montreal’s zone when he was tripped up by Alexei Emelin’s stick and lost an edge.
