The Sabres hit the ice at 10:15am for their game day skate. Not much time at all to re-set lines or to play around with new combinations.
Lindy Ruff is icing all of the same line trios that skated in Winnipeg.
Mike harrington of the Buffalo News tweeted that Derek Roy, the subject of line movement rumours, skated with Vanek and Pommer at in line rushes.

Is there any doubt that the people of Winnipeg are glad to have professional hockey back? The Jets fans have quickly become some of the best in hockey, and the team is 21-10-4 at home as a result. They are fighting for the 8th playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and are one of the teams that you could easily envision playing spoiler for a top seed. Jets fans don’t just want...
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...
Jason Pominville scored on a power play 56 seconds into overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night.
Thomas Vanek and Tyler Myers also scored to help the Sabres (31-28-8) jump into a tie with Washington for ninth place in the Eastern Conference. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots, Pominville and Vanek also had assists, and the Sabres...
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Jason Pominville scored on a power play 56 seconds into overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night.
Thomas Vanek and Tyler Myers also scored to help the Sabres (31-28-8) jump into a tie with Washington for ninth place in the Eastern Conference. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots, Pominville and Vanek also had...
I saw Jordan Leopold in the Buffalo after the game in Buffalo last night. I told him that I thought he played like a beast against the Hurricanes.
"I don't feel like I played like a beast. Just another night".
Leopold was heavily involved in the game as he skated 29 shifts for 24:49 of TOI. 16;21 even strength, 3:54 short handed, and 4:34 PP.
Leo landed one...
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. That's a big jump considering that Buffalo went from potentially being the best team in the division, to getting injured and falling down the standings quicker than an old woman whose walker was kicked out from...
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...
It appeared as if Milan Lucic broke Ryan Millerâs spirit when he drilled him outside of the crease, and subsequently sidelined the Buffalo goaltender with a concussion/stiff neck. But now, as the Buffalo Sabres sit a mere two points out of the playoff picture, itâs been the 31-year-old Miller thatâs resurrected the Sabres' playoff hopes.
Winning seven of his...
Ryan Miller and Cam ward led their respective teams out onto the ice.
Warm-ups started six minutes ago.
Six D are on the ice, including Alex Sulzer. Andrej Sekera is not on the ice.
Sekera skated this morning.
(Welcome to the TD Garden for tonight's game between the Boston Bruins and visiting Buffalo Sabres.)
In the fifth installment in the 2011-12 chapter of the Bruins-Sabres rivalry, it'll finally be a night off for Buffalo's Ryan Miller after 21 straight starts. Turning to Jhonas Enroth for his first start since Feb. 18, a 15-save loss that saw him get chased against...
The Sabres lost twice in Boston. They lost 3-1 on the scoreboard. They lost Thomas Vanek to injury.
Game tied 1-1, third period, the Sabres lost their momentum and their 24 goal scorer in one fell swoop.
All Lindy Ruff would say after the 3-1 loss to Boston is that Thomas Vanek has suffered an upper body injury. Shoulder.
Johnny Boychuk was the perpetrator of Vanek'...
Jason Pominville scored a power play goal just 56 seconds into overtime as the Buffalo Sabres took down the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 in front of a sellout crowd at First Niagara Center. The win bumps Buffalo’s record to 7-1-2 in their last 10 games – tied for best in the NHL in that stretch. It was a game that saw Buffalo’s top line of Pominville, Derek Roy, and Thomas Vanek...

Iâm not sure when it started but once again the 300 level took the âfandemoniumâ to a new level in the MTS Centre tonight as the Jets played host the Buffalo Sabres. Before the game it was easy to say it was going to be a playoff atmosphere but if this was a preview of what the playoffs could be like in...
Call the Erie County Sheriff's office.
Vanek. Roy. Pominville.
Missing in action.
This is getting to be ridiculous. The Sabres top line has been silent for the past 6 games. Luckily for the team that it is getting secondary and tertiary scoring from other sources, like Ville Leino's two goals in Vancouver, or, Corey Tropp banging in the loose change that Brad Boyes...
