Found February 15, 2013 on
Things certainly looked bleak for the Buffalo Sabres after two periods. The Bruins led, Ryan Miller was under siege and if things didn’t turn around, head coach Lindy Ruff might have very soon found himself on the unemployment line. Everything changed in the third period, when the Sabres roared back to overtake the Bruins and keep Ruff on the bench for at least one game more.
Miller’s 30 saves paved the way for Buffalo to beat the Bruins in regulation once again, making them the only team to accomplish that feat so far in the 2013 season. Despite Dougie Hamilton‘s first career goal, the Bruins couldn’t capitalize on their chances and paid the price in the end.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Miller our “Hot Seat Helper” player of the game. Who’s yours?

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.”...

In a surprise move, Lindy Ruff is healthy scratching robust, burly D Mike Weber.
Cody McCormick and TJ Brennan will also sit this one out.
Why is Lindy compromising the grit and tenacity of his lineup by sitting a guy who has arguably been his...
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...
Buffalo is a nice city. Just ask the Bruins. They have to pack up and go back to Buffalo for the second time in three games, all in the same week. The last time the two teams met the Bruins beat the Sabres 3-1 and overpowered the weak Sabres team. Both teams have only played one game since their last meeting. The Bruins lost in overtime to the New York Rangers in a thrilling game...
Sabres D Reggie Sekera is doubtful for the Pens game on Sunday afternoon, according to Lindy Ruff.
Sekera suffered a leg injury when he was checked innocently by Boston's Shawn Thornton on Friday night.
Mike Weber was a healthy scratch vs. Boston. Weber will no doubt draw back in to the starting six D against his hometown Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon.
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,...
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...
Didn't we just play these guys? I feel like the Bruins February schedule is home vs NYR, then at Buffalo, then at NYR, then home against Buffalo - rinse and repeat. I'm not complaining though because playing Buffalo is like Michael Jordan dominating a wheelchair basketball game. For a team I picked to finish on top of the Northeast Division - they're ******* terrible...
Drew MacIntyre gets his revenge.The post Bears Fall in Toronto, 2-1 appeared first on Capitals Outsider.
Cody McCormick is a thick, robust winger/centre who plays like a linebacker on ice. Heâs very effective against the Boston Bruins during his Sabres career. Cody wonât score many goals or dangle enemy goalies, however, his true value to his team is to play the role of bar bouncer and to keep the Bruins honest. Looks Lindy Ruff will be sitting McCormick tonight, according...
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...
I was angry.
The people around me were more melancholy. I stood in the crowd with my hands on my hips. The sun was shining in my eyes like no other day. It was gorgeous outside but I felt hideous inside. Lindy Ruff appeared at the podium. The crowd went wild. I was bored. Still angry. Still pissed off about what the NHL did to us, how Brett Hull's toe stomped out our dream...
Awful game. Absolutely awful game. After dominating the first two periods the Boston Bruins came out into the third period and took a huge John Scott size dump on the ice. Buffalo scores three unanswered goals and win 4-2. Ugh. This loss is worse than the one on Jan 31st. In that game both sides of the ice were an absolute ******** for Boston. Tonight's was just infuriating...
