Tyler Myers got off to another slow start this season.  He currently sits tied for 688th in the NHL in plus/minus at -8, but the majority of that damage was done in the first 5 games when he was -7.  Easy math will tell you that he has played better since that point, going only -1 in the last 14 games.  We’re used to seeing this out of the big defenseman.  Every year, except his Calder Trophy winning rookie season, it seems that he gets off to a slow start, especially in the plus/minus category.  He then seems to be able to right the ship at some point.  Let’s take a look at some splits of prior years to the see the similarities. 2013-14 Season: Games Goals Assists Points Plus/Minus First 5 0 0 0 -7 Last 14 ...

Sabres hoping for more production from Leino

When the Buffalo Sabres host the Los Angeles Kings at First Niagara Center on Tuesday, Sabres forward Ville Leino will be back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch for the team's 6-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. "I've been playing around 10 or 11 minutes and not really [on the] power play so you've got to do the best in your time," Leino said...

Jordan Nolan Piles Into Sabres Broadcaster Who Was Forced to Call Game Between Benches Due to Elevator Issue (Video)

In perhaps the least shocking news of the night, something went wrong for the Buffalo Sabres. Fortunately their latest mishap didn’t result in a loss, not yet anyway, but it did throw a wrench into legendary play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret‘s plans for the night. As the longest-tenured voice in NHL history, the Hall of Fame broadcaster had probably thought he’d seen it all,...

Kevin Freiheit: Just when you think it can't get worse

The embarrassment continues to grow for fans and the players themselves. Ryan Miller and Matt Moulson both admitted it after the last game. The Sabres have won just three of 19 games this season, and only one in regulation. How Ron Rolston still has a job right now is beyond me. There is no way he is going to make it through the season at this rate. On home ice, they'...

Kings-Sabres Preview

Nearly a quarter of the way into the season, the Buffalo Sabres have yet to win in their own arena. They'll try to avoid matching the worst 10-game home start in NHL history Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Kings, a team they've dominated in Buffalo for two decades. The Sabres are 0-8-1 at the First Niagara Center. The 1983-84 Pittsburgh Penguins are the only team...

GARTH'S CORNER: Rope-A-Dope

"It was greasy... a greasy win. It wasn't pretty, but we won it for our fans", Tyler Ennis told me in a jubilant, victorious Buffalo locker room. Matt Moulson, the owner of the eventual shootout GWG, called it a "Rope-A-Dope" affair. Moulson's brother in law allowed 2 gaols on 17 shots in 63:40 minutes played then retreated to the L.A. bench...
