ANAHEIM – The Buffalo Sabres went back to starter Carter Hutton in goal here Sunday night for their game against the Anaheim Ducks but it was certainly no reflection on the work of backup Linus Ullmark on this road trip. In his first two appearances of the season after Hutton exclusively got the call in the four-game homestand that opened the season, Ullmark stopped 55 …

LOS ANGELES -- The Sabres and Los Angeles Kings meet today at 3:30 Eastern in Staples Center and coach Phil Housley briefed reporters 90 minutes before faceoff with the news that Linus Ullmark will get his second start in goal today. Ullmark made 36 saves last Saturday in his season debut, posting his first NHL shutout as the Sabres blanked the Arizona Coyotes, 3-0. He …

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — It's as if Phil Housley went to one of those frilly West Coast juiceries or health food stores, started tossing in the ingredients and pushed the button that said "High". Because what the Sabres unveiled at practice here Friday was their coach putting his forward lines and power-play units through the blender. It's not like Housley had any real c…

SAN JOSE – It's Game 3 of the Buffalo Sabres' jaunt through the West Coast tonight in SAP Center, much more commonly known as the "Shark Tank." The Sabres and San Jose Sharks will face off just after 10:30 p.m. EST, with the game broadcast as usual on MSG and WGR Radio 550. The Sabres enter the game 3-3 and coming off Tuesday's dreary 4-1 loss in Vegas. San Jose is in a…

SAN JOSE — Coach Phil Housley did a lot of talking before, during and after the Buffalo Sabres' practice here Wednesday. There was video work prior to the workout. On the ice, there were a lot of one-on-one chats. Following practice in SAP Center, Housley summoned players out of various rooms in the underbelly of the arena and brought them all into the locker room. T…

LAS VEGAS — Zach Bogosian got a restart to his season and his career Tuesday night. The Buffalo defenseman played his first regular-season NHL game in more than nine months as the Sabres met the Vegas Golden Knights in T-Mobile Arena. Bogosian played only 18 games last season, none after Jan. 9, before finally having surgery on his hip in February. Bogosian proclaime…

LAS VEGAS — Gilbert Perreault and Rene Robert are both in their late 60s now. But when Sabres fans gather to see the two surviving members of the famed French Connection, like they did here Monday night for one of the team's annual Road Crew events, everyone gets transported back to the franchise's glory days of the 1970s. There have been a lot of struggles for the Sabr…

LAS VEGAS — Phil Housley has a hockey game to run here Tuesday night, but the Buffalo Sabres coach is offering support to his wife, as her campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in their native Minnesota is dealing with a firestorm of criticism. Karin Housley's campaign is in crisis management mode after a story in the Huffington Post published Monday revealed Facebook posts t…

LAS VEGAS – Their one real chance at a day off on this Western road trip came Sunday, so the Buffalo Sabres took advantage of it. A free day in Sin City was a fine reward for all the good things that happened during Saturday night's 3-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes in Gila River Arena. The opener of a five-game jaunt was a memorable night of mileposts. As a result, t…

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Buffalo Sabres coach Phil Housley was used to these kinds of trips when he was an assistant in Nashville. When you're in the Western Conference, it's no big deal to be gone two weeks at a time for long road jaunts. It's not nearly as common when you're in the East. When the Sabres took the ice Saturday night to meet the Arizona Coyotes in Gila River…

Kyle Okposo flipped the puck back toward the blue line, where Rasmus Ristolainen was waiting. The Sabres defenseman corralled it for a moment before zipping a perfect pass to Jack Eichel, who rifled a one-timer past goalie Marc-Andre Fleury for the Sabres’ first goal in a 4-2 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday at KeyBank Center. The goal, the Sabres’ …

So you think the Sabres can ease into things with Rasmus Dahlin on board for the first time and Casey Mittelstadt in the lineup full time? Or that they can take a few weeks to let Carter Hutton get more comfortable as a starting goalie, have Conor Sheary work his way back from injury after missing almost all of training camp and have the Patrik Berglund/Vladimir Sobotka…

Jack Eichel was in his waterfront townhouse cooking dinner on a routine night when his phone rang Tuesday. On the other end of the line was Buffalo Sabres coach Phil Housley. While that might not be all that unusual, the message was. Come to the rink right now for a meeting. That was a little strange. The Sabres took Tuesday off for practice but had been at KeyBank C…

The calendar has hit October and the Buffalo Sabres took the ice for practice at KeyBank Center on Monday morning. The scores of fans who watched training camp in HarborCenter can no longer come take a look. Only a handful of reporters and more than 18,000 empty seats are in the house. That means regular season mode is in vogue now. That feeling was even more prevale…
