Found December 28, 2011 on HockeyBuzz:
Captain Jason Pominville likes the way his team responded to the Christmas break by skating the Caps into the ice on Boxing Day. His team now switches to "road mode" and will begin a critical three games in four nights stretch tonight in Newark. Thanks, The Leafs and Sens lost last night and the Sabres can shimmy up the drain pipe with a solid effort against the stingy De...

Year in Review: Sabres Fan Appreciation Night

For many years, if you ventured down to my mom's basement, you may have noticed a couple names carved into a foundation pole down there. One of them was #29, Joe Reekie, a testament of my older brother's love of an unheralded, tough Sabres d-man of the 80's. My contribution was seen right next to this name and showed the different mentality of a teenage hockey fan than...

Be The GM #3: Hockey Edition: What Deals To Make?

Before the regular season began, the Buffalo Sabres were pegged to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference. However, that has not been the case. Buffalo is 17-15-3 on the season, good for tenth place in the East. They have a goal differential of minus 7, also tenth in the conference, and have an abysmal 8-9-3 record at the First Niagara Center this season. They have not...

GARTH: McNasty Boxing Day

If Buffalo, NY had its own official paper currency, its a lead pipe cinch that the faces of Brayden McNabb and Zack Kassian would appear on it. McNabb has become a true blue and gold folk hero in Buffalo this season. Ditto Kassian. Two young bucks, with blue collar DNA coarsing through their veins, busting their asses, imposing their iron wills to make the Sabres a winning team. More on Kassian...

Kevin Freiheit: Much Needed Win

Follow @KevinSHC It's about time. It was so nice to see the Sabres get the win against Washington last night, especially since they went out to a 4-0 lead. I was hoping they would get a few more goals, but Buffalo got the win, so I'm not going to complain. I loved how the Sabres D was involved in big plays throughout the game, and Christian Ehrhoff's wrist shot...

Good And Bad News On Mike Green

from Chuck Gormley of CSNWashington, The good news for disgruntled Caps fans is that Mike Green could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday night against the Buffalo Sabres. “I just need a few skates to get my lungs and my legs back and I’ll be back in no time,” Green said. The bad news is that the significant groin injury he suffered on Nov. 11 against the Devils could...

Big first period propels Sabres past Caps 4-2

Todd Cordell: Devils move to 6th in East, Wedgewood shines for Canada, other notes

Coming off a game in Carolina where the Devils gave a terrible effort and lost, they came out firing last night against the Buffalo Sabres and picked up a big two points. Here are some notes on last night's game as well as an update on Jacob Josefson, who is currently sidelined with a broken right clavicle. - All those who said Devils fans and media over-hyped $cott 'money...

Sabres healing slowly, look to climb standings

It was the final straw for Bruce Boudreau's Washington Capitals, a 5-1 loss on Nov. 26 at the Buffalo Sabres, who were missing nine regulars. The Sabres were more or less their minor-league affiliate, the Rochester Americans. Not anymore. The Caps saw a little bit of it earlier in the ...

Sabres-Capitals Preview

The Washington Capitals and Buffalo Sabres are both outside the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals, though, enter their second game against the Sabres in five days with a much better feeling following one of their most well-rounded efforts. Washington goes for its fifth consecutive home win in this series - and first victory in three meetings this season -...

Caps pull a no-show in 4-2 loss to Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. — It started poorly: a penalty on Roman Hamrlik just nine seconds in. It got worse: a goal by Jason Pominville on the ensuing power play 42 seconds later. What happened after that almost defies words, as the Washington Capitals put on a listless, lethargic and lackluster performance ...

Buffalo Sabres (17-15-3) at New Jersey Devils (19-15-1), 7 p.m. (ET)

The Buffalo Sabres will try to post consecutive victories for the first time in well over a month, as they visit the New Jersey Devils for tonight's battle at the Prudential Center.

Rob Simpson: Team USA 18, NHL 1 - Simmer's 19 from Edmonton

1) The Sabres were 10-6 before the “smackdown” in Boston which included Milan Lucic running Ryan Miller. Including that game, in which they were embarrassed physically and in all facets, they’ve gone 7-9-3 since. 2) Despite losing to Canada 8-1 on Monday, and the USA beating Denmark 11-3, Team USA fans shouldn’t expect an “easy” match-up Wednesday...
