PHILADELPHIA — Don't look for some glowing report about offense here. Wasn't any on the ice either. What did #OneBuffalo stand for Sunday? Few dents on the scoreboard, no chance to win. The Buffalo Sabres were held under two goals for the 14th time this season in a 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers before 19,662 in Wells Fargo Center. And it wasn't like the Sabres …

NEW YORK – As a group of New York Rangers fans walked near Madison Square Garden, they saw an ad for Monday's Winter Classic. They were not impressed by the Buffalo Sabres as the opponent. "Of all the Eastern Conference teams for them to play," one Rangers fan said. "I’d rather even see Carolina.” It was hard to blame them. Buffalo is 10-20-8, last in the Eastern Con…

Phil Housley knew what was going through people's minds. Here we go again. The Buffalo Sabres had no goals through 40 minutes Friday, making that five straight periods without the red light flashing in KeyBank Center. Point-blank chances went unrewarded, and it looked like the fifth shutout of the season and second in a row was on its way. In situations like that,…

Matt Moulson is the first move. There is no doubt more will follow. With the Sabres sitting at the bottom of the NHL at 6-17-4, a shake-up is sure to come in Buffalo. Monday's decision to waive Matt Moulson is the start. "When you don't win they're going to dismantle," center Ryan O'Reilly told The Buffalo News on Monday. "I've seen it before. It's frustrating. It's …

Audie Murphy was as triggered in Ramatuelle as Buffalo sports fans are these days. Sorry if you need to research that reference. I've spent the past four weeks looking up when stats were this bad for the Buffalo Bills. You can take a few seconds out of your postgame hangover to humor me. What doesn't take a Google search to understand is that Buffalo's offense has be…

Ryan O'Reilly never saw this start coming for the Sabres. "I thought we were going to win a lot and be in a much different spot," he said Monday, "but it's harder than it looks." The alternate captain speaks from experience. He has seen how long it can take to build a team. He's also seen how quickly one can fall apart. After helping Colorado make the playoffs as …

COLUMBUS, Ohio – It wasn't so much the fact that Ryan O'Reilly failed to cash in on a breakaway in the second period. It was the way the team reacted. The mental toughness dipped for the Buffalo Sabres after Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky turned the puck away with his pad, preserving a 1-0 lead for the Blue Jackets with 12:41 left in the second period. With …

BOSTON – Before Ryan O'Reilly celebrated his game-winning goal – a victory the Sabres needed so badly that they actually celebrated twice – he was angry. He was peeved at himself. He was upset at Boston's Zdeno Chara. O'Reilly showed it. After failing to score on a point-blank chance, he got into a wrestling match with Chara, the Bruins' 6-foot-9, 250-pound captain. Aft…
