Found April 22, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
PLAYERS: Thomas Vanek
TEAMS: Buffalo Sabres
With his great friend, Blake Wheeler in the box, Thomas Vanek scored his ninth PPG (third most in the NHL) of the season. The goal is a milestone for Vanek as its his 248th career goal. he now has sole possession of 6th place in Sabres franchise history, passing former captain Mile Foligno. Vanek now trails former D great Mike Ramsey by only four goals for fourth place all time in...

Kevin Freiheit: The last of Miller?

With Ryan Miller expected to start tonight and Enroth on Friday, this could very well be #30's final start for the Sabres. Many expect him to go elsewhere over the summer, making for an already interesting offseason. Whether you think Miller is a good goalie, a great goalie or an elite goalie, he deserves better. I'd like to see him succeed and win a Cup, but it doesn...

HockeyBuzz Hotstove: Hotstove: Should Buffalo Move Ryan Miller?

Welcome to the Hotstove! As always, I'm your host, Travis Yost. Although they're not headed to the post-season, the Buffalo Sabres are becoming an interesting watch. The club made a few firesale deals at the trade deadline, shipping off veterans Robyn Regehr, Jason Pominville, and Jordan Leopold. The idea is that the club is beginning to shift into a rebuilding phase, one...

grown men staring into the abyss

Three games before the madness.  Just three.  Buffalo is in town for the next-to-last home game of the season.  And Buffalo sucks this season.  Ryan Miller's tears have taken up residence in the local Greyhound station.  And we have Gene back, and Letang back, and Fleury back.  ROOT, we expect a babby photo.  Bobby is looking particularly earnest between the benches: ...

GARTH: Grigo Rochester Bound?

Mikhail Grigorenko acquitted himself well in his first NHL game in his second stint with the Sabres. Playing with Hecht and Stafford, Grigo skated 15:18 TOI (15 shifts). His ice time was the second highest of the season. He skated a season high 17:10 TOI on January 27 in Washington. Grigo won 9 of 15 draws (60%). At one point in the game, he was 5-0 on draws. He was active and responsible...

GARTH: Ott Wants Jets To Feel The Way He Feels

Buffalo's playoff hopes ended on Friday night when they were thrashed by the NY Rangers on home ice. The eighth place Rangers pasted the New Jersey Devils on Sunday afternoon, thus ending the the playoff hopes of yet another Eastern Conference team. Steve Ott and the Sabres are in spoiler mode right now. The Sabres will host the ninth place Winnipeg Jets on Monday night. The jets now...

Buffalo snaps another Penguins' win streak with 4-2 win

Once again the Buffalo Sabres faced the hottest team in the league on the road, and once again they emerged with a win. The effort was certainly better for the Pittsburgh Penguins who lost on April 2nd to the Sabres, snapping a 15 game winning streak, but Buffalo grinded out a win despite already being eliminated from playoff contention.Ryan Miller stopped 40 of 42 shots, earning...

GARTH: Its Grigo To Me

I’m thrilled for Mikhail Grigorenko that his interim head coach Ron Rolston has committed to playing rookie center in the final three games of the season. Pat Kaleta’s oft-wounded paw has rendered him done for the rest of the season. One man’s loss is another man’s gain. I hate to be a buzz kill, but it doesn’t seem like the organization is embracing...

QUICK CAP: Buffalo secures 11th seed in East with 4-2 win.

Congrats to the Sabres and their fans.  Here is a sick shot by Iginla: In somewhat not good news Brooks Orpik left the game with a lower body injury and did not return. Steve Ott scored the GWG for Sabres if you wanted to know for whatever reason.

GARTH: Miller-v-Fleury

Ryan Miller led his Sabres onto the ice for warm-ups. He'll be your starter tonight versus Marc Andre Fleury. This is Miller's fist start since he was yanked after he gave up four goals to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night. I fully expect Miller to have himself a great game tonight, just like he played two weeks ago when the Sabres spanked the Pens inside their...

Game 46: Penguins-Sabres Preview

Can Jack Edwards please call this game? Steve Ott and Matt Cooke on the ice at the same time. Edwards would be so confused seeing two versions of Sirhan Sirhan on the ice. It would terrify him. I’d say that it would cause him to lose his mind if that was something that hadn’t already…

Game 46: Penguins-Sabres Recap

A win for the Buffalo Sabres tonight clinched the 11 spot in the eastern conference. Fortunately for the Pittsburgh Penguins, only eight teams make the playoffs from each conference. If you were to make a short list of the teams that have given the Pens problems this season, the Sabres might be at the top…

Malkin returns but Penguins lose

Thomas Vanek scored twice, Ryan Miller stopped 40 shots and the Buffalo Sabres edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 on Tuesday night. Steve Ott gave Buffalo the lead for good when he batted a rebound out of the air past Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury with 2:34 left and Vanek added an empty-netter in the final minute. Jochen Hecht also scored for the Sabres, who never trailed while...

Jets edge Sabres to stay in hunt

Antti Miettinen scored with 7:36 left to keep the surging Winnipeg Jets in the playoff race with a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 24 shots, including a huge glove save on Thomas Vanek with 5:45 left to preserve the victory. Winnipeg (24-19-3) improved 6-0-1 in its past seven and moved within a point of the idle New York Rangers, who hold...
