Pittsburgh Penguins (10-5-0) @ Buffalo Sabres (6-8-1)
NBC, TSN2, 12:30 pm/et
First Niagara Center - Buffalo, NY
The Pens visit Buffalo on a cold Sunday.
The Sabres are 11th in the East and they haven't won two games-in-a-row since the first two of the season. They beat the Bruins 4-2 on Friday. The Pens are one point behind New Jersey for the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference lead.
Season Series: 0-0-0
Last meeting that counted: March 30, 2012. Pens won 5-3.
What we said in our recap:
A couple of great things out of this game. One was Brent Johnson not embarrassing the human race. Whatever his injury was, it looks cleared up. Another great thing was that an apparently out-of-sorts Pens team went into the building of a team fighting for a playoff spot and matched the intensity. The Sabres were the hottest team in the league, on a 5-game winning streak. Not anymore.
And how about Dupuis' 13-game point streak? WTF. ...

During the celebration of Hockey Day In America, it’s only fitting that the Buffalo Sabres American goalie Ryan Miller delivered this absolute gem. Tied 3-3 late in the 3rd period, Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal somehow got wide open in the Sabres zone. Sidney Crosby hit Neal with a perfect pass, and Ryan Miller miraculously came across the crease and snagged it out...
When Drew Stafford scored 3:24 into the first period on Friday night, there was no one happier in the arena than he was to finally get one to go his way.
“Obviously, that’s something I’ve been working for,” said Stafford, who donned the team’s brown fur coat that is given to their MVP of the night. “Finally it’s nice to get rewarded; now hopefully it floodgates.”...
On the surface, Tyler Kennedy is the prototypical Dan Bylsma forward.
Good speed. Decent forechecker. Decent defensive forward. Not a European (oops).
But after a disappointing '11-'12 season with 11 goals (in 60 games), Kennedy has arguably been the worst performing forward in the Penguins lineup so far this season.
After 15 games, his one goal and two points...
The Buffalo Sabres fell 4-3 to Pittsburgh yesterday afternoon in what was yet another failed attempt for Lindy Ruff’s club to win back to back home games for the first time this season. The loss was especially disconcerting because Steve Ott’s third period tally had completed a comeback from a 2-0 deficit and had actually given Buffalo a 3-2 lead in the final frame.
Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres played a great game in goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday — Hockey Day in America, in case you didn’t know. With the game tied 3-3 with just over three minutes left in the third period, Miller darted to his left to make a glove save on James Neal’s one-timer.
Watch the awesomeness below:
Unfortunately for Miller,...
It’s become an unfortunate reality for the Buffalo Sabres: late period goals against. And on Sunday, the unfortunate happened once again in Buffalo’s 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
For the sixth time this season, the Sabres gave up a goal with less than 2:30 left to play in a period — a Paul Martin shot with 2:04 remaining. It ended up being the second time that the goal given up...
You still have time to throw your hat! Pascal Dupuis’s 2nd career hat trick wins game for Penguins 4-3 over Buffalo. Penguins are now in 1st place.

With the country celebrating "Hockey Day in America" it was only fitting than an American scored the game-winning goal; even if the losing goaltender was from the United States as well. Paul Martin scored his second goal of the year with 2:04 remaining in the third period to lift the Penguins over the Sabres, 4-3. The Penguins took a 1-0 lead just 35 seconds into the opening...
If there was an honor for being the luckiest team in the NHL, the Buffalo Sabres might be the front runners for that award.
Multiple times this season Buffalo has been bailed out of their awful decisions, and has found itself in contention for a victory even though it was playing awful hockey.
On Friday, it happened again.
Despite an overly poor outing in the second period, and other...
1. Whatâs wrong with Evgeni Malkin, who has one even-strength goal?
2. Should the Pens send Beau Bennett, playing on the third line, back to Wilkes-Barre?
3. Who do you like better on the point for power plays, Kris Letang or Paul Martin? Why?
4. Can you name the Pensâ top three forward prospects after Bennett?
5. Are you concerned with the...
Anton Khudobin skates away as the Sabres celebrate their third goal of the third period.
If you turned the television off after the second period, you missed a lot. Through two periods, it looked as if the Bruins would beat the seemingly disinterested Buffalo Sabres with ease in front of their restless fans for the second time in less than a week. Then came the third, however, and...
After a hard fought, comeback win against the Boston Bruins on Friday night, the Buffalo Sabres have a little more confidence brewing than they did after the last two times the teams met.
In order to keep the confidence growing, the Sabres have to pass a big test this afternoon when they face the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins in a nationally televised game (NBC) on Hockey Day In America...
On Saturday Night's Coach's Corner, Don Cherry weighed in on Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's torn Achilles' tendon at the hand...I mean foot of Pittsburgh penguins forward Matt Cooke, and Cherry actually defended Cooke, suggesting instead that Karlsson was at fault for not taping his skate to his ankle:
Drew MacIntyre gets his revenge.The post Bears Fall in Toronto, 2-1 appeared first on Capitals Outsider.
If Paul Martin hadn't erased two years of disappointing play with his spectactular start to this season, a game-winning goal with under 3 minutes to play would've done the trick, too. Man, that is ******* huge. It's reminiscent of the big moments Sergei Gonchar used to provide.
But Martin wasn't the only hero on Hockey Day in America. Look no further...
