Sabres Do Their Part, But Get No Help

The Buffalo Sabres entered the night just two points back of the Capitals for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Well, they did their job as they easily took care of the Tampa Bay Lightning 7-3 in front of a mostly pro-Sabres crowd in Tampa, Florida. Unfortunately for Buffalo, they still find themselves two points back of Washington as the Caps beat the...

Lightning look to sweep Sabres' series

Tune into Sun Sports at 7 p.m. to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Buffalo Sabres. NHL Lightning territory. The Buffalo Sabres have missed out on chances to boost their playoff hopes in each of the past two games, but could have a better opportunity to help themselves in their next one against a struggling opponent. The visiting Sabres, though, have yet to earn a point...

GARTH: McNabb Returned To Rochester

Now that Tyler Myers has served his time, Reggie Sekera is back to 100% good health, and Alexander Sulzer is the surprise of the season, Brayden McNabb becomes the odd D man out. Myers will return from his three game suspension on Wednesday night vs. Montreal.

GARTH: Win Ten Of 'Em

Lindy Ruff put a fine point on the pencil on Sunday in Tampa. When asked what his overriding emotion is for the final ten games of this season, Ruff gruffly answered: "Win ten of 'em". With ten games remaining in the regular season, Ruff is demanding a dominant performance from his squad in each of its remaining games. Ruff's still chafed at the fact that...

Sabres stop Lightning 7-3

Marcus Foligno and Jason Pominville each scored twice and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 7-3 Monday night. Foligno had two of Buffalo's four second-period goals, helping the Sabres take a 6-2 lead. Pominville scored in the first as the Sabres went up 2-0, and made it 7-2 on a goal 17 seconds into the third. Drew Stafford, Corey Tropp and Brad Boyes had the...

GARTH: Sabres Sign Varone To ELC

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the team has signed forward Phil Varone to a three-year, entry-level contract. Varone (5’10”, 186 lbs., 12/4/90) currently leads the Rochester Americans (AHL) with 43 points (8+35) and two shorthanded goals in 63 games this season. His 35 assists rank him fourth among all AHL rookies and tie for 15th-most...

Sabres and Kings back from the abyss

Since when were the LA Kings and Buffalo Sabres in the playoff mix?If you looked at the standings last month, you would not have found the Kings or the Sabres anywhere near the playoff picture. Today, they sit on the cusp of the post season, and while there is still a lot to be settled in the last 10 games of the season, both clubs are clearly still in control of their playoff destinies...

GARTH: Myers Revenge Factor?

Sabres just ended their skate. Derek Roy and Brad Boyes were missing in action, and, Pat Kaleta was rocking the red "don't screw with me sweater". Travis Turnbull wasn't called up to watch tonight's game. I'm thinking Lindy called him up to defend against any and all Montreal shenanigans, in light of last Monday's Tyler Myers hit on Scott Gomez...

The core, part deux

Almost every Sabres fan looks back on the summer of 2007 with scorn. You know, that summer Darcy Regier let Danny Briere and Chris Drury leave via free agency, essentially destroying a team that'd won the President's Trophy the year before. While Regier's moves were unpopular (and that's a major understatement), there was a little bit of logic behind them...

Canadiens-Sabres Preview

The Buffalo Sabres have won four of the season's five meetings with the Montreal Canadiens. The one loss, however, may have been a blessing in disguise as it seems to have sparked their playoff push. The surging Sabres look to pull into a tie for points with the Eastern Conference's eighth-place team when they host the Canadiens on Wednesday night in the final meeting between...

GARTH: CoHo Season

"I'm happy to do whatever I can tyo help this team win games and earn points right now", Cody Hodgson told me this morning after the Buffalo skate. He told me that he is relieved that he was able to contribute two assists in the 7-3 Tampa victory. "Anything I can do to contribute, and everyone in here is thinking the same way", CoHo told me. Though he...

Dan Spiegel: The Elusive #4 Finally Arrived

Coach Kevin Dineen couldn't watch. He was turned around with his head against the glass as Buffalo's Drew Stafford began his attempt in the 7th round of Saturday night's shootout. The outcome was clear as a bell. The Panthers won the shootout, which is rare in itself, but the Cats accomplished something even more rare than that. The Panthers had won three games...
