Quick passes Vachon in shutout of Sabres

In a very Jonathan Quick-like performance, the Los Angeles Kings' goaltender stopped all 29 of the Buffalo Sabres' shots in a 2-0 win, Thursday night at the Staples Center. And in very Jonathan Quick-like fashion, he downplayed the significance of the shutout victory: It was the 33rd in his career, passing Rogie Vachon's 32 for the all-time franchise record.  "A...

Thinking Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - Boston and Buffalo did talk quite seriously about Chris Stewart, but it doesn’t appear at this time to be a match.

Buffalo won’t make the move early unless it gets what it...

Reinhart back in for Sabres, who still seek control of puck

Sam Reinhart's practice effort impressed Ted Nolan, so the rookie will get another chance to try and impress people during a game. Reinhart, scratched for the Sabres' last outing, will be back in the lineup tonight when Buffalo visits Anaheim. The Sabres didn't do any forward line drills during their morning skate, so it's not clear where Reinhart will be in the...

. @SabresStats: Setting The Tone

Remember when the Sabres started the 2006-07 season with 10 straight victories?  They outscored their opponents 49-23 in those 10 games.  They never looked back and rode that momentum all the way to the Presidents Cup.  That was a different team and a different time.  Only Drew Stafford and Patrick Kaleta (who only played 7 games that year) remain from that team. Last year...
