It makes for quite a matchup in the Stanley Cup final as the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues meet in Game 1 Monday in TD Garden. Faceoff on NBC Monday is a little later than normal, at 8:23 p.m. ET once all the pregame ceremonies are out of the way. The…

DETROIT – This is it. Game 82 of a lost season. The Buffalo Sabres wrap up a death march of four-plus months since the halcyon days of November Saturday night in Little Caesars Arena against the Detroit Red Wings. They're 32-39-10 for 74 points and thus the best they can do is 76, a mild improvement over last year's 62-point finish but a disappointment given preseason e…

It's a merciful end to the home schedule for the Sabres Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators in KeyBank Center. The potential is there for this to be the last time with the Sabres at home for lots of faces. Obviously, Coach Phil Housley's status is very uncertain. Veteran winger Jason Pominville has an expiring contract and broke down when talking to the media thi…

It's Game 80, as in three from the end. It's Home Game 40, as in two from the end. The Buffalo Sabres continue to play out the string Tuesday night in KeyBank Center against the Nashville Predators, and it's really the last time the Sabres can have any impact this year on the playoff race as their last two games are against fellow Eastern Conference lowlights Detroit an…

UNIONDALE – It's a throwback night for the Buffalo Sabres and a big look to the future for the New York Islanders when the teams meet tonight at 7 in NYCB Live Nassau Coliseum, the name of the renovated home of the Islanders from 1972-2015. The Sabres are here for the first time in nearly four years, since a 3-0 loss on April 4, 2015. The Islanders, meanwhile, are tryin…

MONTREAL – There's been a lot of negative history brought up about the Sabres recently. A win tonight in Bell Centre against the Montreal Canadiens could give the Blue and Gold a rare dose of historic goodwill. The Sabres have won all three previous matchups this season, but they were all completed by Thanksgiving weekend as Buffalo was headed to No. 1 overall in the NH…

There was real live noise in KeyBank Center Sunday when you couldn't have expected it. Fans responded to the Buffalo Sabres' physical play and their 4-3 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues. We know there will be noise tonight when the Toronto Maple Leafs – and their legion of fans – hit town. But the Sabres want to find the same kind of style to help them get through …

In a season going nowhere, the Buffalo Sabres can actually complete a season sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins with a win tonight in KeyBank Center. Faceoff is 7:05 p.m. on MSG and WGR Radio. The Sabres have not swept Pittsburgh since going 4-0 in 2005-06 – Sidney Crosby's rookie year. They have won both previous meetings in overtime, with a Jack Eichel goal producing a …

CHICAGO -- Talk about timing. With their playoff hopes basically gone and their inability to win on the road a big reason why, the Buffalo Sabres find themselves playing a game Thursday night in the NHL arena in which they've waited the longest to find another win. How long has it been since the Sabres have beaten the Chicago Blackhawks in the United Center? The last…

Say this for the Buffalo Sabres: They can relax a little tonight when the Edmonton Oilers are in KeyBank Center.  After all, they're not continuing their futile quest for a two-game winning streak. The Sabres are coming off Saturday's 5-2 loss in Toronto that dropped them to 0-10-1 in their last 11 games after a win. They're meeting an Edmonton team that's 4-1-1 in its …

TORONTO – For the second time this week, the Sabres are in Scotiabank Arena to meet the Toronto Maple Leafs. Buffalo is playing on a back-to-back after Friday's overtime win over Pittsburgh and did not have a morning skate today. Toronto has won both meetings this season, a 5-4 overtime thriller in December in KeyBank Center and Monday's 5-3 victory here. Faceoff tonigh…

The Buffalo Sabres are desperate for points. For them, there may no worse team in the NHL to be playing tonight in KeyBank Center than the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Sabres are 2-12-2 in their last 16 games against the Penguins, although they posted a 5-4 overtime win in November over the Pens in the midst of their 10-game winning streak. But they have gone just 1-8 in th…

TAMPA – This is probably the last place the Buffalo Sabres need to be today. Reeling after three straight losses, and just 11 wins in their last 34 games, the Sabres face the tall task of meeting the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning tonight in Amalie Arena. It's a 7:30 game on MSG and WGR Radio. And while it's a mismatch on paper, it should be noted that the Sabres ar…

SUNRISE, Fla. – The Buffalo Sabres have a streak going. A losing streak. It's exactly what they couldn't have at this time of the year and it's come against two teams, the New York Rangers and New Jersey, that are not in the playoff hunt. But the Sabres were drubbed by a combined 10-3 score against those two clubs over the weekend to fall further into the abyss when it …
