Lindy Ruff was faced with a serious challenge on Wednesday morning. Thomas Vanek hadn't scored in seven games and was mired in a nasty scoring slump. Derek Roy was also squeezing the stick too tight as a result of his scoring drought. Jason Pominville, like Vanek, had gone seven games since recording his last point. Ruff was not happy with the play of the 26-9-29 line on the Western roadie...

Game tied 1-1, third period, the Sabres lost their momentum and their 24 goal scorer in one fell swoop.

Ty Anderson: I Don't Believe It: B's win two in a row, beat Enroth and Sabres 3-1

Everyone hits a point where they simply can't take ______ anymore. For some it's people (I think I know a thing or two about that), others can't deal with the rigors of a mundane nine to five job, but for a team it simply hits a point where you get sick of losing games that you should win. I'm not sure that the Bruins could've handled dropping tonight'...

66. Buffalo Sabres at Boston Bruins. Don't Look Now But The Sabres Are In The Hunt

Dont' look now folks, but Buffalo is contending for a playoff spot. Two weeks ago they were basically dead to rights and now they're 2 points out of the 8th spot.

Kevin Freiheit: Give Miller some much needed rest

Three games in the next four nights. Jhonas Enroth has to get a start in one of these right? I'd like to see Enroth get that start tonight. Let Miller rest for a game and give him starts the following three games, which are all against division teams. Just because Miller has been playing well lately doesn't mean the Sabres should ride him to the ground. He's already...

Johnny Boychuk Makes Big Impact With Thunderous Hit, Game-Winning Goal in Bruins' Victory Over Sabres

BOSTON – First, Johnny Boychuk put a hurting on Thomas Vanek. Then, he spread the pain to the rest of the Sabres lineup.
