Matt Moulson will play in his 25th game in a Buffalo Sabres sweater on Friday.
He has no idea how many more times he will suit up for the team he was traded to from the New York Islanders on Oct. 27, along with a first-round 2014 draft pick and a 2015 second-round selection in exchange for Thomas Vanek.
The 30-year-old Moulson is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on...
Pegged by many as a movable asset for the Sabres at the trade deadline, Matt Moulson might end up staying in Buffalo beyond Mar. 5.
“Definitely, I think there is,” Moulson told CBC when asked about the possibility of re-signing in Buffalo. “I don’t know what they think of me. I love playing for Teddy [Nolan].”
Acquired from the Islanders in late October for as part of...
There were so many elements to the Buffalo Sabres’ latest thrill ride with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night in Air Canada Centre.
The record books will show the Leafs won in a shootout, 4-3, as Joffrey Lupul got the only goal. They’ll show that Sabres captain Steve Ott forced overtime on a power-play goal in a six-on-four situation with 24.1 seconds left in regulation...
USA Hockey knows everything it needs to know about Ryan Miller. Just to be sure, Miller put another gem on his resume just a few days before the organization names its Olympic squad.
Miller made 49 saves Sunday evening, lifting the Sabres to a 2-1 shootout victory over Washington.
Steve Ott scored the deciding goal in front of the sellout crowd of 19,070 in First Niagara Center...
Plenty of people weighing in on the Bruins situation today and I will as well.
Based on the people I talk to, the GMs at least, it is widely believed the Bruins will indeed make a move for a substantial D-man but not until the deadline. "Not a day before" was a common mantra.
However, at this point at least the Rangers Girardi is way less likely to move than people...
You don't need to be a lip reader to understand what Ruff was saying after one ref called it a goal but was overruled by the other on-ice officials.
The action start at the :24 second mark.
Jonathan Bernier stopped all three Sabres in the shootout to give the Toronto Maple Leafs a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Friday night.
Matt Moulson, Tyler Ennis and Zemgus Girgensons all failed to beat Bernier.
Ryan Miller stopped Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk in the tiebreaker, but Joffrey Lupul beat him on a nifty backhand.
Steve Ott had scored with 25 seconds left in regulation...
There are many aspects to love and respect about the 43 year old Buffalo Sabres-Toronto Maple Leafs border war. The most intriguing thing to me is the element of unpredictability. No two games are the same. There's always a new hero and a new goat each game. There's fist fights, smack talk, face washes, and sweet dangles.
On Friday night, the Legend Of Big John Scott authored...
Ryan Miller made 49 saves, and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Sunday night.
Drew Stafford netted Buffalo's goal in regulation, and Steve Ott scored the lone shootout goal in the sixth round as the Sabres improved to 5-0-1 in their last six home games after starting 3-12-1 there.
Miller stopped all six Washington shootout attempts.
Philipp Grubauer made...
We went from talking about Linus Omark pooping to John Scott scoring a goal in a matter of a few hours. What a day of headlines.
Scott scored his 2nd career NHL goal, and first as a Sabre. His other was during the 2009-10 season when he was playing for Minnesota.
In 200 games, he has six points (2 goals, 4 assists).
John Scott's first goal as a Sabre:
"Definitely, I think there is, "I don't know what they think of me. I love playing for Teddy.
"Like I said before, the organization has treated myself and my family incredibly well. The people of Buffalo are great fans and it has been a lot of fun growing with these guys. From where we were to where we want to be is obviously a process, but I think we've...
