No, that's not a clip from a Will Ferrell movie in the Instagram you see below. It's the Buffalo Sabres — who haven't exactly been rocking the ice with a 1-7-1 record this season. But it's a young team, with a lot of rookies and perhaps too much youthful exuberance to spare. Here are the Sabres players showing some nifty moves in an on-ice dance off after Friday morning's practice. It's not Blades of Glory. But I see some familiar moves from Risky Business, Footloose, Pulp Fiction and even a little Slapshot.

Word is getting around on Darcy, Sabres making deal

Nick Kypreos has been around the NHL for a quarter century between his playing and broadcasting careers so you can safely assume he’s made a few connections along the way. He’s well spoken has friends across the league and knows how to use a telephone.

GARTH'S CORNER: Sabres Are Two teams In One

The Buffalo Sabres are in a world of hurt right now. Their kids are looking for leadership from their head coach and their veteran teammates.

Sabres Show Off Less-Than-Stellar Moves in Post-Practice Dance-Off (Video)

The Sabres have been rather pathetic on the ice this season, and their dance moves aren’t much better.

The Sabres players concluded Friday’s skate with an on-ice dance-off, with each skater showing off their moves on top of the...

Flyers should pursue Sabres' Vanek

he offensive-challenged Flyers need to add a sniper. Badly. Paging Thomas Vanek. Paging Thomas Vanek. The Buffalo Sabres winger and the Flyers seem like a perfect match. The Flyers have scored a total of 10 goals - their lowest seven-game total to begin a season in franchise history - and they are off to an unsightly 1-6 start. Their general manager's fate may be hanging...

GARTH'S CORNER: The Factor

Ryan O'Reilly is exactly the player that Buffalo Sabres desperately need at this most critical time in their team's re-building process. He's big, strong, skilled and immensely skilled.
