Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers could face a suspension or fine for his hit to the head of Devils left wing Dainius Zubrus in tonight’s game at First Niagara Center.
The NHL’s Department is in the process of taking a closer look at the hit tonight and we should hear something Sunday about whether Myers will have a hearing. The Sabres don’t play again until Tuesday, so there is no need to rush to make a ruling.
Myers received a two-minute minor for an illegal check to the head on the hit, which came 7:02 into the third period of the Sabres’ 2-1 win. Myers appears to make contact with Zubrus’ head with his upper arm.
Devils coach Pete DeBoer thought it was worth of a five-minute major. Zubrus, who said he was “OK” after game, said, “I haven’t seen the replay, so, honestly, I can’t comment much.”

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers was suspended for three games without pay for his hit to the head of New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus, the NHL announced Monday. During the third period of Saturday night’s game, the 6-foot-8 defenseman appeared to leave the ice as he launched himself into Zubrus along the boards, connecting with his head. Zubrus remained in the game...
Zenon Konopka, like a whole bunch of people, had to deal with a travel disaster over the last couple days.
The problem for Konopka: he was trying to make it to Buffalo from Minnesota — the Sabres, his boyhood team, claimed him on waivers and wanted him in the lineup for Saturday.
Here's the blow-by-blow:
The original plan was to fly from Minneapolis to New York City to...
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen scored at 9:42 of overtime to give Finland its third world junior hockey title, 3-2 over Sweden on Sunday.
Ristolainen picked up the puck along the right boards, beat defenseman Robert Hagg as he cut in front of the goal and slid a backhander under goalie Oscar Dansk's right leg pad. Ristolainen has one goal in 19 games this season...
Ok Sabres fans I have a bone to pick with you… Zenon Konopka. Seriously? Let me just preface my rant by stating the he seems like an interesting (albeit odd) guy. He’s a “local” guy (Niagara on the Lake,) which apparently means you can be from anywhere within a couple hours driving distance. He grew up attending games at the Aud and supposedly always dreamed of playing for...
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers has been given a three-game suspension by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for this dirty hit on Devils forward Dainius Zubrus. I think this suspension is about right. Myers is also a repeat offender.

D'Agostini's rebound goal at 11:49 of the third period lifted the Sabres to their fifth straight home win, a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.
''We're never going for pretty,'' D'Agostini said.

It started out like most other Sabres and Devils games - boring, listless, neutral zone hockey - and had the First Niagara Center dozing off by the end of the first. And while it never quite turned into a barnburner, the Sabres managed to wake themselves up and take control of the last 30 minutes en route to a 2-1 win.
After a first period that had us all questioning our fandom...

"Well, one of the things that you can normally do over the World Juniors is gossip with all your peers who come to go there and there was a bit of a surprise that Jim Benning, of the Boston Bruins, was...

Bob McKenzie of TSN was on NHL Live today and talked WJC, Roberto Luongo update and Team Canada and the latest on the GM search for the Buffalo Sabres.
The Devils recalled defenseman Eric Gelinas from Albany (AHL) Monday while placing forward Patrik Elias on injured reserve.
Gelinas had been assigned to the AHL club, but his stay was brief.
Elias, suffering from lower body soreness, was put on IR retroactive to Dec. 31, when he was shoved into the boards by Pittsburgh's Tanner Glass. He did not practice Monday.
