It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has seen more shots than any other goalie so far this season, so to say he’s broken in would be an understatement. Sunday during Hockey Day in America, the Sabres and Pens were knotted at three when Neal was set to ring up his 12th goal of 2013 as Sidney Crosby fed him deep in the Sabres’ zone.
Miller gave Neal a Mutombo wag and denied him with a glove save any Major League third baseman would be proud of. Neal and Crosby weren’t even mad. They even shared a chuckle.
Miller could only stand on his head for so long. The Pens scored a minute later and won the game 4-3.
That’s just not right.

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...
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...
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.
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...
To say that Drew Stafford has been in a slump is pretty much an understatement. 14 games played and he has yet to score one goal this season. In fact, you have to go back to March 31, 2012 to find the last game that Stafford has scored in. This slump has been highlighted across multiple outlets with some sensible opinions found in the Buffalo News to the utterly ridiculous elsewhere...
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....
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. Consistency is perhaps the last word you would choose when defining the team’s play thus far and that has played a rather large role in why the Sabres have struggled...
I spoke with a reliable source on Monday night who confirmed what I have been hearing for the past couple of days that the Buffalo Sabres are said to have âserious interestâ in a high profile RFA, two-way centreman who is presently sitting at his home in Clinton, Ontraio, awaiting a trade from the team that drafted him.
The Sabres have earned only 13 of a potential 32...

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...
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...
Drew MacIntyre gets his revenge.The post Bears Fall in Toronto, 2-1 appeared first on Capitals Outsider.
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.
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...
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...
