NASHVILLE – The Sabres finally ended one winless streak Friday. Now they’ll need to end another. Nashville hosts Buffalo on Saturday night in Bridgestone Arena, and the Predators carry a five-game winning streak over the Sabres. They’ve outscored the Sabres, 17-5, during the run. Buffalo hasn’t won since a 3-2 victory in Nashville on Dec. 3, 2011. The game was Ryan Mille…

After an 0-4-2 slump entirely against Western Conference teams, the Buffalo Sabres took on a friendly foe and quickly got back in the win column Friday night. Jack Eichel's snapshot with 7:36 left in the second period snapped a 1-1 tie and the Sabres went on to beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-1, before 18,052 in First Niagara Center. The Sabres are 8-8 against the Easter…

The Sabres keep saying it, over and over. "We're getting the chances. We just need to bury them." After outshooting Nashville, 32-20, but losing, 3-2, the Sabres again went to their refrain. It turns out they're right. Here is a look at the shot chart compiled by HockeyStats.ca. It shows the Sabres firing away from close range but failing to connect. Here's a link to…

For a goaltender, there’s no room for error when your team is scoring just once per game. Linus Ullmark made one mistake. The Sabres failed to overcome it. Buffalo’s winless streak reached six games Wednesday night with a 3-2 loss to Nashville. The Sabres are in an 0-4-2 rut and are 2-6-1 in their last nine games in First Niagara Center. The Predators took a 2-0 lead jus…

When the Sabres acquired Cody Hodgson from Vancouver, he went to great lengths to avoid talking about his old team. The same philosophy was on display Wednesday when the Nashville forward returned to Buffalo for the first time – but this time he did it with an angry bite. Hodgson furiously dismissed talk about his time in Buffalo, specifically the buyout process that made…

Robin Lehner was scheduled to be out six to 10 weeks with a high-ankle sprain. It's looking like 10 weeks is more realistic. The Sabres goaltender has had to back off his rehabilitation, coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday. "I don’t think I would call it a setback," Bylsma said in First Niagara Center. "He got to a point where he started upping his rehab level, and that’s wh…

The St. Louis Blues scored twice in the third period to continue their dominance over the Buffalo Sabres, notching a 2-1 win at First Niagara Center Monday night. It was the ninth straight win in the series for the Blues while the Sabres stumbled to 0-3-2 in their last five games. Robby Fabbri scored the game-winner with 6:34 left in the game as a lose puck bounced in fr…

DALLAS -- Just 17 seconds into the game Saturday night, Matt Moulson found himself in alone on Dallas goalie Antti Niemi after a neat feed from captain Brian Gionta. But the Sabres' winger, a $5 million player stuck on four goals for eight games now, couldn't give his team an early lead. Niemi made the save with his left pad as the puck trickled near the post. It was an …

DALLAS -- The Buffalo Sabres kept making regular visits to the penalty box but were still within a goal after 47 minutes Saturday night. Pretty good when you consider they were last in the league on the road in penalty killing. There was no way, however, to keep the high-powered Dallas Stars at bay. They finally broke through on a goal by captain Jamie Benn with Tyler Enn…

DALLAS -- Chad Johnson's numbers are going to be skewed for much of the season by the seven-goal meltdown he endured Oct. 23 against Montreal. But November has been a huge step forward for Johnson, who makes his fourth start of the month for the Sabres tonight against the Dallas Stars. Johnson is 1-0-1 in his three November appearances, posting a 1.11 goals-against averag…

DALLAS -- Stars coach Lindy Ruff was busy Thursday night directing his team to a 3-2 win at Washington. His team took Friday off but the coaching staff had its work to do and spent a good portion of the day breaking down the Sabres' 3-2 shootout loss in St. Louis. They were duly impressed. Buffalo was much better in that game than during most of its 3-1 loss to the Stars …

ST. LOUIS -- Evander Kane had 28 shots on goal, but only scored once, over the eight games he played with the Sabres before his knee injury. Many of them were alongside of Jack Eichel, who set him up for several strong scoring chances. The duo gets reunited tonight here against the St. Louis Blues, with Kane returning just 10 games after suffering an MCL injury to his kne…

ST. LOUIS -- We're here under the shadow of the Gateway Arch for Thursday's opener of the Sabres' two-game Midwest sojourn and here's an early look at what you might expect today and tonight in Scottrade Center: Giving Sabres the Blues: St. Louis has won the last six meetings with Buffalo -- outscoring the Sabres, 22-5, in those games -- and its dominance over Buffalo is …

Tyler Ennis has no goals in the last seven games and only three this season. Coach Dan Bylsma can tell the Sabres forward is feeling the strain. "He’s trying to make a lot happen with every time he touches the puck," Bylsma said Wednesday. "He has that mentality and is probably trying to shoulder the load a little bit, so yes, I think he’s pressing." Bylsma is moving Enn…
