It is a household family name in Buffalo, synonymous with what became a trademark leap. These days, the Foligno surname is a hot topic once again -- courtesy of 20-year-old Marcus.
The latest second-generation Foligno -- after brother Nick of the Ottawa Senators -- has been the talk of western New York since he was called up in early March. In nine games, the Sabres rookie had six...

The Sabres have sent centre, Travis Turnbull, back to AHL Rochester. Turnbull was call-up last week as an emergency player when the Sabres lost Pat Kaleta and Nathan Gerbe to injury.
In three games, with the big club, Turnbull had himself a productive first sortie in the NHL. He won a fight and scored his first NHL goal. He added a ton of jam and sand aper in Kaleta's absence...

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com, In Buffalo on Monday, you had Lindy Ruff talking as if Tuesday’s game against the Capitals is just another big one in a season of 82, even though the veteran coach with 563 career victories knows that the Sabres’ next game most definitely is not like the others.
At roughly the same time in Washington, you had Dale Hunter comparing Tuesday’s showdown...
Defenseman Robyn Regehr and the Buffalo Sabres have mounted a remarkable two-month charge to climb out of the cellar and into the playoff hunt.
Now they have a recharged Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals standing in their way in a late-season showdown at Washington on Tuesday.
Regehr can appreciate how much adversity - injuries, criticism, and a franchise-worst road skid - the Sabres...
Something is wrong. Yes, it was 80 degrees out and I was about 5 degrees away from turning on the air conditioning in March, which means global warming is for real and the Mayans were correct. The world is coming to a fu#$en end. If that doesn't tell you something is wrong, then maybe my recent mood with the Sabres will add credence to it.
I'm kind of indifferent about...
Tuesday night at Verizon Center was the biggest game of the season for the Washington Capitals. In fact, it could be argued that this was the biggest regular season game played inside the Phone Booth in four years.
“[It’s going to be] like the seventh game of the playoffs,” said Dale Hunter earlier in the week.
Boy, was it ever. For this Capitals franchise, at least...
Sabres scartches tonight:
Kaleta, Weber, Gerbe, Ellis.
No surprise here: Ryan Miller gets the start.
Miller has played out of his skull since the All Star Game. He's 16-3-5 with a 1.90 goals against average, and gawdy .936 save %.
Josh Harding gets the pipes for Minnesota.
Impressive as the Buffalo Sabres' two-month charge out of the cellar and into the playoff hunt has been, defenseman Robyn Regehr knows their job is far from complete.
The Sabres remain on the outside looking in and now have a recharged Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals standing in their way in a critical late-season showdown at Washington on Tuesday.
''Well, we haven&...
He has a gorgeous curl-and-drag. A marketing machine at one point for the league that looks for stars more so than astronomers or sleazy Hollywood agents. He's had life profiles in sports and culture magazines. Whether it is Florida or Edmonton, the press boxes fill up a little bit fuller when he comes to town. There is, after all, an entire industrial complex -- foreign...
