PLAYERS: Lindy Ruff
TEAMS: Buffalo Sabres
Philadelphia-flyers
One of these days, the Sabres players are going to clean the wax out of their ears so that they can hear Lindy Ruff when he implores them to 'stay out of the box". One of these days. Until then, they'll take eight penalties in a game like they did in Ottawa, and they will lose. How can a team commit eight minor penalties and still expect to win the game? Foligno was guilty twice. Myers...

Sabres Observer Radio: Ruff Times

The Sabres look worse than a 5-7-1 team, and head coach Lindy Ruff is getting more heat from fans and media in Buffalo than he ever has since taking the job 16 years and 4 presidential elections ago.  The hearty discussion here is not only about if Ruff should be replaced, but also if owner Terry Pegula would even consider making such a move. In this week's edition of Sabres...

Eric Karlsson’s NHL Dive of the Year submission (VIDEO)

Tuesday night against the Sabres, the Senators’ Eric Karlsson attempted to put himself up for an Academy Award with one of worst attempts at drawing a penalty you will ever see.  Buffalo’s Patrick Kaleta chased Karlsson behind the Ottawa net and put his stick on Karlsson’s back causing (not at all causing) Karlsson to fall to the ice.  The worst thing about it: the official...

Busting The Compacted Schedule Myth

Are you a frustrated Sabres fan?  Tired of wasting time by the water cooler arguing about Thomas Vanek's ice time or Tyler Ennis' lack of faceoff proficiency?  Want to look hockey-smart in front of your friends and co-workers?  Approach them with this ice-cold nugget of trivia: What are the Buffalo Sabres currently doing, from February 1st to April 8th, for the third...

GARTH: Sabres Set TV Ratings Records

Win or lose, the Sabres always manage to achieve record TV ratings for their games that air on the MSG Network and on WGRZ-TV, Buffalo's NBC affiliate. Buffalo Sabres game telecasts achieved record numbers for the month of January with both locally and nationally televised games setting new marks for viewership. Sabres games on MSG posted the highest-ever ratings for the...

GARTH: Myers Will Play

Tyler Myers has struggled mightily this season. He's been watching the past two Sabres games from high up above. Tonight, Myers will return to the Sabres lineup in Ottawa. Lindy Ruff told Howard Simon this morniong that Myers will skate. Its not known yet which Sabres D will sit to make room for Myers. Ruff will meet with James Patrick at the rink this morning and will...

Vanek Storm Warning

It really didn’t take the start to this season by Thomas Vanek for some knuckleheads out there finally to come to the realization that the guy can be pretty good at hockey, did it?  Were these the last holdouts, the diehards, who still hold it against Vanek that his agent played the sitch to perfection in July 2007?  Whatever.  The Sabres now have 9 points this year, and he...

GARTH: Power Outage

Ryan Miller made 77 saves on the 81 shots he faced vs. the Islanders and Bruins. Wouldn't it be great if he could maintain a .951 save percentage? Only problem, is his teammates only scored four goals to support him. Miller allowed only four goals against (the empty netter by Lucic wasn't his fault). Wouldn't be great if the Sabres forwards could get up off their...

Khudobin stands tall in big win over Buffalo

After getting lit up on their home ice just over a week ago by Thomas Vanek and the Buffalo Sabres, the Bruins, powered by a strong performance from back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin, secured a 3-1 win last night in what has become a heated rivalry. Shawn Thornton was back on the ice along with Sabres' enforcer John Scott, who knocked Thornton out for several games with a concussion...

GARTH: I Heart Fundamentals

No other team in the 43 year history of the Buffalo Sabres has run the emotional and physical gauntlet of gutting out 14 games in 24 days. Thanks to the NHL lockout, the Sabres had to play the cards that they were dealt. The team didn’t skate on Wednesday. They practice today to prepare to avenge Sunday’s loss to the Bruins. The first 14 games of the season and dead and...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: Senators Head to Pittsburgh

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Ottawa's brief slide came to an end after beating up on the Buffalo Sabres at Scotiabank Place Tuesday night. Pittsburgh is hoping they can break a poor stretch of their own when they play host to the Senators at CONSOL Energy Center on Wednesday. After running off five consecutive victories, Pittsburgh has hit a bit of a rough...

Erik Karlsson got away with a pretty obvious dive

There's no room for embellishing or diving in hockey. Aside from the fact that NHL officials have a hard enough time trying to figure out what's happening on the ice without theatrics, hockey players have always been lauded as being tough, rugged warriors - not divers. In Tuesday's game between Ottawa and Buffalo, Erik Karlsson demonstrated exactly what the NHL needs...

Lindy's downward spiral

I was angry. The people around me were more melancholy. I stood in the crowd with my hands on my hips. The sun was shining in my eyes like no other day. It was gorgeous outside but I felt hideous inside. Lindy Ruff appeared at the podium. The crowd went wild. I was bored. Still angry. Still pissed off about what the NHL did to us, how Brett Hull's toe stomped out our dream...
