It’s not a secret the Sabres need help scoring. It’s also not a secret who needs to supply the help. Matt Moulson and Drew Stafford, expected to make up two-thirds of Buffalo’s top line this afternoon against Detroit, have goose eggs in the goal column lately. Moulson is stuck in a 10-game drought. Stafford has gone seven games without a goal and has just one in the past 18. That’s obviously trouble for a team languishing at the bottom of the NHL. “We’ve got to bear down, myself especially,” Moulson said Saturday. “It seems like we’re getting those in-tight shots, and you’ve got to find a way to score in this league.

The Sabres have become a three ring circus on the ice, in the locker room, and in the front office. Starting with John Scott’s preseason tiff with Phil Kessel and ranging from their eye-gougingly bad...

Analyzing the Ryan Miller to St. Louis trade rumors
