From Hometown Hockey: The Buffalo Sabres are on a winning-streak. I bet that’s a phrase no one expected to hear in 2014, huh? Well that’s where we are thanks to three consecutive wins by the blue and gold as they head into a Wednesday night home tilt with the middling Winnipeg Jets. While a three-game […]

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The NHL has postponed the Sabres’ home game against the New York Rangers on Friday night due to a severe lake-effect storm hitting the Buffalo region.

The goalie equipment didn't exactly fit Arturs Irbe. What did were the familiar competitive emotions the 47-year-old once enjoyed during his NHL playing days.
''Once a goalie, always a goalie,'' Irbe said with a wide grin.
Seven years after Irbe thought he hung up his pads for good, the Buffalo Sabres goalie coach came out of retirement for a few hours on Wednesday night. Irbe...

Buffalo Sabres do not have a lot of good going on lately. With poor points for the start of the season, near the bottom of the rankings and with injuries they cannot seem to catch a break. A new injury occurred to goaltender Michal Neuvirth. #457461764 / gettyimages.com Neuvirth suffered a lower body injury during the first period on Tuesday night against the Washington...

The Buffalo Sabres were far and away the worst team in hockey last year earning a measly 52 points, but they are even worse this year. With a 3-13-2 record through 18 games, they are on pace to finish the season with 36 points and record one of the worst seasons in the history of the NHL. Watching them play is often a painful experience and unfortunately...
The Minnesota Wild is riding a four-game losing streak after starting the season 7-3 and the Buffalo Sabres are the worst team in the NHL with a 3-12-2 record. Both teams rank in the bottom half in the league in goals-per-game average with the Sabres sitting dead last, so it wasn’t expected that an offensive,...Read More

The Buffalo Sabres are an awful hockey team. They stand at 3-12-2 just 18 games into the 2013-14 NHL regular season. That’s worst in the league, currently setting them up with the best chance at picking first overall in a loaded 2015 NHL Draft. There’s certainly hope for the future, but none of it should be allocated to this season.
Why is that a problem? Because NBCSN, in their...

The NHL season is still young (“Thank goodness,” said the CBJ fans), and yet it’s already tempting to look at the developing trainwreck in Buffalo. The Sabres have picked up a few lucky wins thanks to their goalies. Other than that? It’s bleak.

The Buffalo Sabres did the best thing they could possibly do for the development of their first-round draft pick, Sam Reinhart. They sent him out of Buffalo.

Had they kept him in the NHL it would have...

From Hometown Hockey: It didn’t take long, but the NHL rumor mill is already warming up. One of the favorite names mentioned in those rumors is none other than Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers.
