Doug Allen walked into KeyBank Center Tuesday night wearing a warm jacket over his black-and-white tux and an NRA baseball cap over his bald head. He said hello, excused himself to drop the coat and cap in the green room, and headed to the Zamboni entrance that leads to the Buffalo Sabres’ ice surface.

I don't feel like I'm making an impact. It's tough. It's fru…

Buffalo again failed to get a winning streak going, falling 4-1 to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Before we get to more pressing issues, I have a bone to pick with the National Toy Hall of Fame. This year's three-member class was announced on Thursday and it includes: Paper airplanes, the overrated board game Clue and the Wiffle Ball. I was glad to see Wiffle Ball finally get its due. I played for hours in the driveway behind my house with my buddies as a boy, and s…

When Defense Secretary James Mattis took away hockey, Parker Gahagen went out and made history. Now he wants to make the U.S. Olympic team. The Army goaltender simply wants to be all that he can be – but it's been far from simple. "I've been talking to four-star generals and colonels," said Gahagen's agent, Michael Wulkan. "It's crazy." Gahagen, an Amherst nativ…

When Bob Boughner comes to Buffalo, he usually takes a minute to go past the spot where War Memorial Auditorium stood. He remembers playing the last year in the old Aud and moving a few blocks to the new arena. And one of the things he remembers are the banners. "I've always loved coming back here.
