Poor Mikhail Grabovski. First, his own team repeatedly fails at spelling his last name correctly….now Ryan Miller is stealing easy goals from the Russian forward with no absolutely remorse.
Check out the sweet stick save Miller made during Sunday’s Sabres-Capitals game in Washington. Just absurd. Let’s hope Miller saves some of that magic for Sochi next month.

Eric Fehr swooped through the offensive zone as time ticked away in Tampa on Thursday, determined to make some luck for himself. When his initial chance on the rush went unsuccessful but the Washington Capitals maintained possession, Fehr took his 6-foot-4, 212-pound frame to the front of the net for a perfectly-placed deflection that earned him the game-winning goal against the...
Perhaps the most grateful of all teams in the NHL’s more competitive Eastern Conference is the Washington Capitals. Despite going 3-3-4 in their last ten games, including a 2-1 shootout loss to the lowly Buffalo Sabres, the Caps continue to…Read more →The post Washington Capitals cling to playoff spot despite average results appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Michal Neuvirth skated out to defend the home net at Verizon Center on Friday night as anxious as he has ever been in his NHL career. It had been seven weeks since he last appeared in a game, a layoff brought about first by injury and then falling down the depth chart, and the Washington Capitals goaltender wanted to make sure he had a strong outing.
But Neuvirth, whose most dominant...
The following has just been posted by Mikhail Grigorenko on his Facebook page. We have previously confirmed this is, in fact, his page.
I just want to apologized (sic) for the situation going on right now.
We just need to find a place for me where i can develop and be the best hockey player I can be.
I came to North America 3 years ago coming...
Per the Canadian Press's Stephen Whyno, Buffalo Sabres prospect Mikhail Grigorenko cannot play in the AHL this season, and he wasn't keen returning to the QMJHL's Quebec Remparts...but he's changed his mind:
Grigorenko tells #Sabres he will report to QMJHL's Quebec Remparts, team says.

At what point during a players development do you know it isn't going right? We'd say, right around the time a player starts writing posts on Facebook about it.
The Sabres and the development of Mikhail Grigorenko took a massive step backwards after Grigorenko refused to go back to his junior team for the second straight year. But that wasn't it. Grigorenko...
The Children’s Wish of Canada recipient 12-year-old Braden Nienaber was able to skate with the Washington Capitals and then dropped a ceremonial puck for the Washington Capitals-Buffalo Sabres game. Nienaber even threw Sabres captain Steve Ott out of the circle, much to the delight of the fans. Definitely a cool experience for Nienaber and his family.

The Buffalo Sabres have hired Tim Murray as their new General Manager and Craig Patrick as special assistant and advisor to the hockey department.
They will work with President of Hockey Operations Pat Lafontaine to rebuild the Sabres. It is looking more and more like Ted Nolan will lose the interim tag and become the Sabres full-time bench boss. The new hockey department is complete...
Earlier this week the Buffalo Sabres hired former Ottawa Senators AGM Tim Murray to be their new GM. Since Murray was announced as the new GM, there has been speculation that he will be hiring an assistant general manager. One name that is front and center is Craig Oster, who is not presently employed by an NHL club.
Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch offers this:
The talk is...

With a desperate wave of his stick, Ryan Miller somehow kept a point-blank shot out of the net, saving the Buffalo Sabres from matching the longest road losing streak in franchise history.
Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovski's attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win...
Which of your Washington Capitals have been the biggest surprise so far, for better or worse?
On Thursday former Senators Assistant General Manager Tim Murray was introduced as the new General Manager of the Buffalo Sabres.
Bruce Garrioch is reporting it’s a five-year commitment from the Sabres.
I don't have this confirmed but the talk in NHL circles is Tim Murray got a five-year deal from the Sabres. BUF doesn't release terms.

Though the result of their first game under new general manager Tim Murray was like many others during this disappointing season, the Buffalo Sabres must forge ahead amid their latest organizational move.
Considering their recent struggles in Washington, things might not get any easier Sunday when the Sabres try to avoid matching the longest road losing streak in franchise history...
After losing six of their last seven, the Caps started winning again for a whopping two games.
As with all things Caps, they took two steps forward and one backward this week. They played two strong games against the 2nd best team in the Atlantic Division, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs. Then, they took a step back by blowing it against the Buffalo...
