Sabres defenseman Robyn Regehr has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to play against the Boston Bruins on Sunday. Regehr had missed seven games with a lower body injury from a 3-2 loss at Washington on Jan. 27. To make room on the roster, the Sabres (5-6-1) waived fourth-line forward Matt Ellis for reassignment to Rochester in the AHL. Struggling defenseman Tyler Myers was a healthy scratch for a second consecutive game. Rookie center Mikhail Grigorenko was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. For the Bruins (7-1-1), center Shawn Thornton returned after missing two games with a concussion. Also back were forwards Daniel Paille (upper body), who missed two games, and Brad Marchand (upper body), who missed one game.

Mikhail Grigorenko’s Benching “Part Of The Program”

Just what are the Sabres doing with Mikhail Grigorenko? Entering Sunday night’s game against Boston  many were left wondering that very thing after the 12th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft has seen his playing time be reduced each night until he was made a healthy scratch for the contest against the Bruins. Grigorenko skated during warm ups with the team on Sunday night, but...

Still The Same In Buffalo

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News, High-ranking people from across the league are laughing at the Sabres, just as they did last year after the season turned ugly. What people, you ask?

Have Those That Played During the Lockout Had an Advantage?

Today the Sabres face the Islanders in Nassau Coliseum thus completing the first quarter of this lockout shortened season.  It has been a disappointing start, both for the organization with a 4-6-1 record, and for many of the individual players who have struggled mightily out of the gate.  Injuries, a lack of training camp, and the condensed schedule have been the common excuses...

Containing Scoring Leader Thomas Vanek Will Be Key for Bruins in Buffalo (Video)

The Bruins played their worst game of the season the last time they faced off with Buffalo, and Sabres forward Thomas Vanek had a great deal to do with that. The 29-year-old Austrian tallied five points, including a hat trick, in his team’s 7-4 win over Boston and is off to perhaps the best start of his eight-year career. Vanek leads the NHL in both goals (11) and points (23) through...

Keys to The Game Vs. Buffalo

After a Big Bad Blizzard rocked the Northeast the Big Bad Bruins now have to rock the Buffalo Sabres. The two division rivals already faced once this year in a game that did not go well for the defensively minded Bruins. The Sabres scored 7 goals on the Bruins, one an empty net goal, against the Bruins who put up four goals themselves. The Bruins weren't only beat on the score...

Sabres Still Looking For Answers

Photo Courtesy: Bill Wippert/NHLI via Getty Images Another night, another game in which the offense struggled, the defense was awful, and Ryan Miller had to stand on his head in order to keep the Sabres in contention for a victory. For the third game in a row, and second in as many nights, the Sabres were horribly outplayed by their opponent. But unlike the previous two outings,...

Anton Khudobin Keys ‘Blizzard Bounce Back’ as Bruins Avenge Loss to Sabres, Keep Rolling in Win Column (Video)

On paper, it would appear that Anton Khudobin versus Ryan Miller favors the Buffalo Sabres. Luckily, hockey isn’t played on paper, it’s played on ice — where Khudobin was the better player on this night. The 26-year-old goalie made 25 saves to Miller’s 36, but the key was quantity, not quality this time around. The Bruins relied on their backstop to spark a bounce-back effort...

GARTH: Power Outage

Ryan Miller made 77 saves on the 81 shots he faced vs. the Islanders and Bruins. Wouldn't it be great if he could maintain a .951 save percentage? Only problem, is his teammates only scored four goals to support him. Miller allowed only four goals against (the empty netter by Lucic wasn't his fault). Wouldn't be great if the Sabres forwards could get up off their...

Claude Julien, Adam McQuaid Stress Importance of ‘Sticking With It’ in Win Over Sabres (Video)

Sunday night’s matchup between the Bruins and Sabres was an exercise in determination. The Bruins felt like they dominated play through the first 40 minutes, head coach Claude Julien said, but they were unable to solve Sabres goalie Ryan Miller and break a 1-1 tie. The B’s did not let up, though, and Patrice Bergeron finally snuck a one-timer past Miller with under nine minutes...

Second Line Foils Miller’s Superb Night As Bruins Beat Sabres, 3-1

The Bruins celebrate Patrice Bergeron’s game-winning goal in the third period of Sunday’s game against the Sabres. Whether it was the benefit of the extra day of rest or the results of cabin fever from Nemo, the Bruins came out flying in a rematch with the Buffalo Sabres last night. Again, it was a flawless third period that propelled the B’s to the 3-1 win and their best 10...

Khudobin stands tall in big win over Buffalo

After getting lit up on their home ice just over a week ago by Thomas Vanek and the Buffalo Sabres, the Bruins, powered by a strong performance from back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin, secured a 3-1 win last night in what has become a heated rivalry. Shawn Thornton was back on the ice along with Sabres' enforcer John Scott, who knocked Thornton out for several games with a concussion...
