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...

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: Weber Scratched

1st Period: ________________________________________________________________________ Sabres Scratches: In a surprise move, Lindy Ruff is healthy scratching robust, burly D Mike Weber. Cody McCormick and TJ Brennan will also sit this one out. Why is Lindy compromising the grit and tenacity of his lineup by sitting a guy who has arguably been his...

Keys to The Game Vs. Buffalo

Buffalo is a nice city. Just ask the Bruins. They have to pack up and go back to Buffalo for the second time in three games, all in the same week. The last time the two teams met the Bruins beat the Sabres 3-1 and overpowered the weak Sabres team. Both teams have only played one game since their last meeting. The Bruins lost in overtime to the New York Rangers in a thrilling game...

GARTH: Discipline Disappers

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? ...

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...

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...

12. Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres

Didn't we just play these guys? I feel like the Bruins February schedule is home vs NYR, then at Buffalo, then at NYR, then home against Buffalo - rinse and repeat. I'm not complaining though because playing Buffalo is like Michael Jordan dominating a wheelchair basketball game. For a team I picked to finish on top of the Northeast Division - they're ******* terrible...

GARTH: Scratches

Cody McCormick is a thick, robust winger/centre who plays like a linebacker on ice. He’s very effective against the Boston Bruins during his Sabres career. Cody won’t score many goals or dangle enemy goalies, however, his true value to his team is to play the role of bar bouncer and to keep the Bruins honest. Looks Lindy Ruff will be sitting McCormick tonight, according...

Thomas Vanek, Claude Giroux Both Surprises At Quarter Point of NHL Shortened Season

Most teams in the NHL have only played about 12 or 13 games this season, but considering we’re dealing with a lockout-shortened schedule, we’re already at the quarter point of the season. That being the case, it’s the perfect time for some reflection. Here’s a look at three big surprises in the early part of the season: Chicago Blackhawks Sure, we all understood that the...

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...
