The Sabres are heading back to one of the houses Terry built. For the second straight preseason, Buffalo will make itself at home in Pegula Ice Arena. The Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins will face off at 7 p.m. on the Penn State campus. Here are Five Things to Know about the Sabres' second preseason game. 1. Jack Eichel is in. The Sabres are sending their top li…

Evan Rodrigues takes pride in his self-evaluation. He's a speedy player, but he knew he needed to get even faster to earn a spot with the Sabres. When he got back to Boston during the summer, he joined Jack Eichel and a few other former college teammates for off-ice workouts. Their trainer designed a program to build leg strength, and the group bought in. "That was t…

Sabres defensemen are going to have the green light this season. It will create interesting and entertaining plays. That was evident right from the start. Late in the second period of Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina, the teams were skating four-on-four.

It's visible from everywhere inside the…

Junior players are always hopeful of appearing in a preseason game. More often than not, they skate around during practice and watch the professionals play in the exhibitions. Cliff Pu is an exception. An impressive showing in the Sabres' Prospects Challenge earned him another chance to put on a Buffalo jersey. He'll play in the preseason opener Monday night when Car…

Cody Goloubef is alone in more ways than one. The defenseman is in Sabres training camp on a professional tryout, making him the only player who isn't assured of having a home this season. The other 50 guys have minor-league or junior options if they don't make the Sabres. Goloubef also arrived in Buffalo without knowing a soul. "I'm coming in blind," Goloubef sai…

If the Sabres score a goal for every time they say "fresh start," the franchise record will be set by November. But for Zemgus Girgensons, it's clear those words really mean something. No player had a bigger drop-off during the Dan Bylsma era than Girgensons. He went from a top-four point-producer to an offensive afterthought. When new Buffalo coach Phil Housley fill…

The Sabres went through their third day of training camp Sunday with one notable exception: Marco Scandella. The defenseman, who had arthroscopic surgery on his left hip in May, took a maintenance day. "He really went after it yesterday, just testing it out," coach Phil Housley said in HarborCenter. "He's a little sore, so it's no sense in rushing him back to play." …
