... each of today’s NHL villains is simply following in the footsteps of those who came before them. So today, let’s pay tribute to the previous generation. These 10 players may no longer be in the NHL, but their legacies helped lay the groundwork for players like Patrick Kaleta, who make the game what it is today.
Crimes against humanity: Was arguably the best “shadow” in hockey history, meaning he specialized in following the other team’s best players around and annoying them instead of playing actual hockey. Constantly spoke some sort of indecipherable languagethat made other players want to murder him. If that didn’t work, would also occasionallytry to kiss them....
Crimes against humanity: Threw one of the most famous cheap shots in NHL history, which got him suspended for 21 games. Also threw this elbow, which — if it happened today — would have gotten him suspended for 31 games. And he delivered thi...

Tonight will be the first time the Rangers and Sabres meet since this...
So after hearing this statement from Marc Staal on the Patrick Kaleta hit during the post game...
“It (ticks) you off, it gets you angry. It’s a cheap hit. The biggest thing is you do want to hurt them, you want to make them feel that. We were able to get two, but it doesn’t do that kind of...
Some quick Sabres trivia: Which two Buffalo forwards lead the team in average ice time since Ron Rolston replaced Lindy Ruff as head coach?
If you don’t have Steve Ott as one of your answers, you lose.
As a matter of fact, Ott and captain Jason Pominville are the only 2 forwards on the team under Rolston to average more than 20 minutes per game.
Some will tell you this is...
The Hockey Central Insiders on Sportsnet, Nick Kypreos, Chris Johnston and John Shannon mentions the Panthers, Sabres and Flames will be sellers this season.
Kypreos brought up the Ryan Miller trade talk and John Shannon discussed the GM Meetings and what is going on with the Coyotes.
Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has a sinus infection, meaning backup Jhonas Enroth will start against the New York Rangers.
Interim coach Ron Rolston provided the update after Miller missed the pre-game skate Tuesday morning. Miller is healthy enough to serve in a backup role.
It's the second start in three games for Enroth. He allowed two goals in a 3-2 shootout loss at...
The hit that Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis wasn’t a dirty or malicious one, even though it was from behind. The Buffalo Sabres forward was merely trying to turn and protect the puck, and he turned as Simmonds was hitting him. It was a bang-bang play and Simmonds didn’t have time to react. The referees were not going to call a penalty...
Back to the grind stone. Turn the page to the Rangers.
Ron Rolston spoke with media after today's practice.
Tyler Ennis does not have a concussion after he was smoked face first into the glass by Wayne Simmonds at 4:47 of the opening period of the 3-2 Sabres loss in Philly.
Thanks for the update Buffalo Hockey Beat.
Well, there's another disappointing game from the Buffalo Sabres.
If we're going to have a horrible season, at least it's a shortened one. I don't know if I could go 82 games watching a team play like this.
I just shake my head every time I see the "power play" for Buffalo. It is absolutely horrendous. They can rarely get in the zone and get it set...
Marcus Foligno scored twice and backup goalie Jhonas Enroth made 18 of his 32 saves in the third period of the Buffalo Sabres' 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
Enroth, who started because Ryan Miller was sidelined because of a sinus infection, earned his first victory since a 5-1 win over Washington on Nov. 26, 2011. He was 0-9-3 in 16 appearances since then...
The good news for Sabres fans is that offensive help, in the form of Ville Leino, will likely appear on the ice in Buffalo tonight.
The not-so-good-news is that Ron Rolston will have to be creative and will have to play Tetrus with his current lineup.
If Leino plays tonight, and it appears very likely that he will, Rolston and Regier will have to augment the roster in order to add Lein...
Detroit Cass Tech 2015 running back Mike Weber talks about his visit to Michigan on Sunday. Also, the Cass Tech standout discusses his in depth thoughts on Michigan, what he likes about their program, what he’s looking for in his future college school, his decision timeline and more.
Coming off of three straight losses and, in my opinion, five straight dismal periods of play, there is a lot of work to be done by the struggling Flyers (11-14-1). Entering into tonight’s contest with Buffalo, who recently lost long-time head coach Lindy Ruff (9-13-3), the Flyers sit in the 11th Eastern Conference placeholder on [...]
The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...

The Buffalo Sabres are on life support, putting it mildly, when it comes to making the playoffs this year.
They entered the night just one point ahead of Florida for the lowest point total in the NHL, and seven points back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Needless to say, chances are ultra-slim,...
The New York Rangers (13-9-2) visit the Buffalo Sabres (9-14-3) at the First Niagara Center starting at 7:00 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.
