Thomas Vanek’s been the only Sabre to produce on the power play. Five of his twelve goals has been with the man advantage At 6-9-1 and tied 10th in the Eastern Conference Standings, there are a lot of issues currently plaguing the Buffalo Sabres. One of those issues is the team’s lack of ability to produce consistently on the power play. Buffalo finds itself sitting in the bottom five in the league in power play conversions with a 13.6% success rate, good for 26th in the NHL.  The lack of success with the man advantage has the Sabres at the point where theyjust as soon decline the opportunity than actually go on the power play. It’s cost them chances time and time again to pull out victories. Once again happening in the team’s 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon. Buffalo was given a power play with 6:18 remaining in the third and the game tied at three. They had a chance to retake the lead after losing it a few minutes prior, but as has been the case for most of the season, t...

Sabres’ Ryan Miller robs Penguins’ James Neal (VIDEO)

The Ever Fickle Sabres Fan

The old adage about weather in Buffalo goes: “if you don’t like it, wait five minutes.” With a third of the NHL season officially in the books, it’s safe to say we can apply that same saying to being a Sabres fan.
