Aside from being a hockey player, Josh Gorges is a hockey fan. He’ll turn on the television Monday, and he’ll flip to NHL Network. When the highlights from Chicago’s 5-1 victory over the Sabres come on, the defenseman might want to shield his eyes. The Blackhawks were unquestionably the better team Sunday in KeyBank Center, and it showed on the scoreboard. But …

This was an old-fashioned butt kicking. The Chicago Blackhawks have won 11 straight against the Sabres and were on a different level during Sunday's 5-1 dismantling in KeyBank Center. The first four Chicago goals were each scored by a different line. The Hawks were sound defensively and goalie Scott Darling wasn't tested all that much. But what did so many of the red je…

Ending long losing streaks on consecutive days was too much to ask of the Sabres. Actually, it was way too much to ask. Chicago easily dropped Buffalo for the 11th straight time Sunday, pulling away for a 5-1 victory in KeyBank Center. The Sabres haven't beaten the Blackhawks since Dec. 11, 2009. The Sabres were hopeful of extending their winning streak to four games…

Dan Bylsma put the “Gone fishin’” sign on his door following Sunday’s game. No, really. “If the weather is what it says it’s going to be, I’ll have maybe a few opportunities to wet the line and catch fish,” the Sabres’ coach said in KeyBank Center. Temperatures are scheduled to reach the low 50s this week in Buffalo, which will allow Bylsma to get o…

Move over, cold and clammy. “Soup and a Sandwich” is Brian Campbell’s real masterpiece. Buffalo fans may remember Campbell’s low-budget commercial for the Center for Excessive Sweating in the mid-2000s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDjKkMxdLW4 Chicago fans are getting a better look at the defenseman’s acting chops. Campbell is starring in a team-produ…

Highlights from Buffalo's home win over the Blues. Stay with [BN] Hockey for complete coverage of the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo won its third straight Saturday, earning a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues.

Robin Lehner insists he doesn't care about the numbers but the ones he's putting up are eye-popping. He's a lot more interested in feeling good in the goal crease and helping his team collect victories. He's getting the job done there as well. The Buffalo Sabres' net has been wide open for the taking since that bizarre night nearly three years ago when Ryan Miller wa…

Ryan O’Reilly regularly puts the onus on himself. He says it’s up to him to lead the Sabres to victory. He’s partially right. Buffalo’s highest-paid player and No. 1 center certainly needs to carry the load. He’s not the only one. The Sabres also have Jack Eichel, Evander Kane, Kyle Okposo, Rasmus Ristolainen and Robin Lehner at the top of the leadership gr…

Wake up. Learn you've been called up. Get in your car. Drive to Buffalo. Notch your first multi-point NHL game. Welcome to Nick Baptiste's Saturday. The forward got the call around 9 a.m. to head to KeyBank Center as Sam Reinhart came down with the flu and couldn't play in the afternoon game against the St. Louis Blues. And Baptiste made a seamless transition to t…

In order to extend their winning streak, the Sabres needed a victory against a team they hadn't beat since 2009. The drought is over. Buffalo won its third straight Saturday, earning a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues. The Sabres carried a 3-1 lead into the third period, and Robin Lehner made 16 of his 37 saves in the final 20 minutes to close out the win. [GA…

Sam Reinhart is out. Nick Baptiste is in. Reinhart, the Sabres’ second-leading scorer, missed Saturday's game against St. Louis with an illness. In Reinhart’s place, the Sabres have recalled Baptiste. The winger is eighth in the American Hockey League with 18 goals, and he’s third on Rochester with 30 points. Baptiste has appeared in 12 games with the Sabres…
