The New Jersey Devils lost their fourth straight contest on Saturday afternoon at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres. Jersey's Team fell by a score of 4-3 in a shootout; the Devils missed out on a point in a game in which they dominated the opposition. Johan Hedberg stopped 20 of 23 shots but could not get the job done for the third consecutive game.
David Clarkson and Steve Ott got things started with a brief scrap just 27 seconds in. Clarkson took Ott down and provided an early energy boost for the Devils. New Jersey and Buffalo played a chippy opening period; both Hedberg and Sabres' goalie Ryan Miller were strong throughout. The teams headed into the locker room at the end of the first locked in a scoreless tie. The Devils out-shot the Sabres 13-6 in the opening period and seemed destined to score first.
The Devils picked up where they left off in the middle period. Kevin Porter was called for boarding just 1:53 into the second period and sent the Devils to the po...

The New Jersey Devils have activated left wing Ryan Carter from injured reserve.
Carter, returning from a concussion, should be in the lineup Saturday, when the struggling Devils take on the Sabres in Buffalo. He will rejoin mates Steve Bernier and Stephen Gionta, reuniting a line that was pivotal in New Jersey's run to the Stanley Cup final last season.
Carter was hit by a...
The Buffalo Sabres have won three straight — their longest streak of the season — and are in New York for a Sunday night tilt with a Rangers team that sits just one point ahead of them in the standings. And if Buffalo wants to leapfrog the Rangers in the standings, it’s going to half to do it with the same lineup they used Saturday to beat New Jersey.
Thomas Vanek, who was...
Katie Strang is reporting that Patrick Kaleta will have a phone hearing with The Shanna-no-ban. Per league rules, a phone hearing indicates that Kaleta will receive no more than five games if he is to be suspended at all. Kaleta’s hearing is about this dirty hit:
The Buffalo Sabres are having one of the more disappointing shortened seasons among their NHL counterparts. All-world goalie Ryan Miller hasn’t gotten much help in front of him. Giving up the third most goals in the NHL doesn’t go too far in trying to win hockey games. Nor do stupid plays like this one from Patrick Kaleta Sunday.
Kaleta, a sixth-year forward for the Sabres...
Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta will likely be hearing from Brendan Shanahan in the very near future after his dangerous check on New York's Brad Richards. As Richards skated towards the boards, Kaleta shoved him from behind with his stick, sending Richards into the boards headfirst. Kaleta received a major penalty for checking from behind as well as a game misconduct for his reckless...
While the New Jersey Devils search for ways to end their recent struggles, the Buffalo Sabres hope they're in the midst of finally turning their dismal season around.
The visiting Devils look to avoid a fourth straight defeat and keep the Sabres from a season-high third consecutive victory Saturday.
New Jersey (10-6-4) averaged 2.9 goals during its 9-2-3 start, but has totaled...

Someone call 911, the Buffalo Sabres are on fire. Okay, maybe a bit too much with that...
Michigan hosted a number of football prospects for today's basketball game, including Detroit Cass Tech running back Mike Weber, who already holds a Michigan offer.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Brendan Shanahan sits back in his office chair and takes very little time to answer the question. Nearly midway through his second season as NHL chief disciplinarian, what has he learned the most?
"I don't think this is a job that can be done perfectly. It's only a job that you can aspire to do well," the NHL's senior vice...
Brendan Shanahan has to make a decision on the nasty Patrick Kaleta hit from behind on Brad Richards which took place during the Rangers 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres last night. The Buffalo forward has a 3:00 p.m. hearing by phone.
If you're looking for some irrational defense of the hit from a big fan of the team, you won't get it here. There's no excuse for...
The Sabres made waves recently when they fired Lindy Ruff after 16 seasons as their head coach. Since then they’ve gone 3-2 under Ron Rolston. Under both coaches, the Sabres system is similar to what we’ve seen from the Flyers under Peter Laviolette, which is essentially two different looks.
The first look is the 2-1-2 forecheck, which the Rangers utilize as well. This is...
