NEWARK, N.J. -- Did you notice those pitchforks on the front of the New Jersey Devils' sweaters? You can just about stick them in the Buffalo Sabres' season. Unless something wholly unexpected happens in the next few weeks, it's readily apparent this club isn't going to the playoffs for the eighth straight season. Coach Phil Housley said Friday night his team played …

The best thing about the Sabres right now is they're getting out of town so most of you won't have to see them in person for a while. As somebody on Twitter reminded me during the first intermission of Friday night's 6-2 loss to the New York Rangers, the first period was the type of play where legendary broadcast analyst Mike Robitaille would have cracked that the Sabre…

Matt Hunwick's fourth game of the season will be remembered by his biggest mistake. The Buffalo Sabres' 33-year-old defenseman committed a neutral-zone turnover that pinned him and his teammates in their own end late in the third period. The Winnipeg Jets capitalized when Blake Wheeler scored the go-ahead goal with 3:55 remaining in regulation, and they held on to beat …

Casey Mittelstadt sat quietly at his spot in the home dressing room in KeyBank Center and looked over to his left, where a dozen reporters were gathered around Jack Eichel. Mittelstadt, a 20-year-old center for the Buffalo Sabres, had just left the ice following an exhaustive post-practice skate with his fellow rookie teammates – additional work to get young players acc…

In what's easily been his best season with the team, Zach Bogosian has been largely immune from the turnover bugaboo that has plagued the Buffalo Sabres' defense for weeks. But Bogosian got infected in a bad way the last two games, so he's aiming for a quick turnaround when the Sabres host Minnesota Tuesday night in KeyBank Center. "As a competitor, you always want t…

DALLAS -- A number of Buffalo Sabres players will be dealing cards and working the gaming tables when the Town Ballroom downtown is transformed to resemble a prohibition-era casino Saturday night. All involved will be lending their time to Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian's "Casino for a Cause II," an event held by his foundation, the BOGO Bunch, to raise funds for Roswe…

Casey Mittelstadt was almost sabotaged by his Buffalo Sabres teammates. As the 20-year-old rookie center participated in the shootout portion of the Sabres Skills Challenge on Sunday, players from the opposing team shot 10 pucks down the ice to try to prevent him from scoring. Mittelstadt still managed to stick handle the puck between his legs and beat Carter Hutton to …

Rasmus Dahlin returns to Capital One Arena for Saturday night's game between the Sabres and Washington Capitals. It will be a tad quieter than the last time he was there.

A little R&R. And some real live actual practices. Things have been quite a bit different for the Buffalo Sabres the last few days as they finally got a chance to catch their collective breath after an intense stretch of hockey that lasted nearly a month. When they hit the ice for Saturday's 1 p.m. game against the Philadelphia Flyers in KeyBank Center, the Sabre…

Ten wins in a row. Say it slowly: Ten. Wins. In. A. Row. Think about that. It's the talk of the NHL. It's moving into talk-of-the-sports-world territory. It's historic for the Buffalo Sabres. And after all we've seen the last five years, it's just patently ridiculous. And that's said with the highest of compliments. Pinch yourself. It's real. Tuesday night's th…
