The great majority of the Buffalo Sabres’ highlight goals this year, have come by way of Thomas Vanek. Tuesday night, Vanek’s linemate Cody Hodgson got into the act after he pick-pocketed Eric Staal. Following the theft, Hodgson toe-dragged (hockey term) between Staal and fellow Hurricane Jiri Tlusty. Then, a man-on-a-mission-Pavel-Datsyuk-style, Hodgson skated through Alexander...
Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino could be ready to make his season debut as early as next week after missing the first 25 games with an injury to his right hip.
In ruling out Leino from playing at Philadelphia on Sunday, interim coach Ron Rolston called it a ''strong possibility'' he could play Tuesday, when Buffalo hosts the New York Rangers.
Buffalo Sabres forward Cody Hodgson humbly submitted his goal of the year candidate on Tuesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes and boy was it a beauty. Hodgson stole the puck from Hurricanes captain Eric Staal at center ice, then toe dragged around Jiri Tlusty, broke into the zone and then walked around Justin Faulk and buried it in the back of the net. Oh, did I mention...

“No. Absolutely not. In fact, the opposite,” general manager Lou Lamoriello said today. “No setback. That I can assure you.”
So why is Brodeur, who is on injured reserve, no longer listed as day to day?
“It’s his back. You know backs...

One of these days, the Sabres are going to play a 60 minute hockey game.
They played a valiant first 53 minutes in Newark, then they took a seven minute nap.
The roof began to fall in on Buffalo when Christian Ehrhoff took a stupid penalty and Adam Henrique scored the PPG to cut Buffalo's lead to 2-1.
Their lack of urgency ended up costing them two huge points in the...
