It was supposed to be a ‘fight night’ at the TD Garden. The Buffalo Sabres, embarrassed by the Boston Bruins in front of the world last year when Milan Lucic’s trucking of Ryan Miller went unanswered, beefed up their roster with offseason acquisitions of both Steve Ott and the 6-foot-8 John Scott, and did so with the primary idea of putting an end to the Bruins’ bullying ways. But...

Ty Anderson: Live-Blog: Sabres' Scott drops Thornton in first, 0-0

A line brawl and three fights in four seconds. That, along with two losses for his team at the time, the Dallas Stars, tell you the story of center Steve Ott's recent trips to Boston. In a word, the B's are 'aware' of Ott and what he brings to the Sabres' lineup. "I have no problem with anything. I think that’s their choice to build a team they want...

Brandon Prust vs. Steve Ott

Nothing makes me happier, than watching Hab's tough guy Brandon Prust work the Sabres tough guy wanna be Steve Ott like a clown. I guess if Steve Ott wants to continue getting pounded on a regular basis, more power to him. Last season, Prust had 20 fighting majors playing for the New York Rangers. This season, Prust already has eclipsed the four fight mark in a little over two weeks.

Bourque Not Living Up to Expectations, Lucic Surpassing Them

Milan Lucic and Chris Bourque are two Bruins players who both came into the season with question marks surrounding them. Lucic was ridiculed by critics, including me, as being fat and out of shape. I personally said he was caught in between being a scorer and a tough physical forward. But in the first six games Lucic has two goals and two assists equaling up to four points in six...

Miller can't stop Canadiens by himself

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens were raring to go when they faced the Buffalo Sabres. Even so, it took them nearly one full period to break through against Ryan Miller, who couldn't hold them off on his own. Rene Bourque and David Desharnais scored twice and Lars Eller had a goal and two assists to lead the Canadiens to a 6-1 victory over the Sabres on Saturday. Rookie...

Lindy Ruff Says Sabres’ Offseason Bulk-Up Wasn’t Done to Match Up With Bruins’ Toughness

The Buffalo Sabres got tougher this offseason, and many think that has to do with the defending Northeast Division champion Bruins, who the Sabres continue to chase. Buffalo isn’t just chasing Boston in the standings, though. They also proved last season that they also lack the toughness that has become one of the Bruins’ best traits. The Sabres were criticized far and wide for...

Boston Bruins / Buffalo Sabres rivalry keeps intensifying

It seems as if each time the Boston Bruins face the Buffalo Sabres the rivalry between the two teams intensifies. In case you've forgotten what brought the rivalry to a boil back in 2011, here's a video reminder of the Milan Lucic hit on Ryan Miller. The two clubs still have plenty of anger brewing in 2013. When they squared off on the final day of January, the Sabres...

Vanek's Trick Powers Sabres Past Bruins

Coming into tonight's Buffalo versus Boston game the primary focus was the potential physical play. Since the Sabres got bigger over the off season, with the additions of enforcer John Scott and agitator Steve Ott, many Sabres fans thought they would finally receive an answer for last season's Milan Lucic and Ryan Miller incident.However, Sabres sniper, Thomas Vanek grabbed...

Beat Boston!

I pretty much pride myself on not being duped too easily. Alright, maybe I have in the past when it comes to sports. But for the most part, I don't really listen to experts or fans when it comes to telling me what is right or what is wrong with a team. Sure, you can argue with me and I'll respect your opinion, but for the most part I think you are probably full of **...

PREVEW 7. Buffalo Sabres at Boston Bruins - WATCH OUT FOR THE SABRESMAFIA Y'ALL

  Yeah, that's a thing. They call themselves the Sabres Mafia, which apparently is a play off of the Bills Mafia. Being a Bills fan and the three or four Bills fans I follow on Twitter, the Bills Mafia is just a bunch of Bills fan who are sick of watching their team suck so they've come up with some stupid thing to feel important. They have a website too, where their...

Double Minors: Vanek powers Sabres

Tuesday night didn’t end well. Ryan Miller allowed a pair of questionable goals and there were some struggles from various players on the roster. However, Tuesday’s overtime loss to the Leafs was followed by a 7-4 win over the Bruins. Thomas Vanek continued his Hart-worthy play with a five-point effort that was complimented by his first hat trick since 2011. Buffalo’s defensive...

Losers of 4 Straight, Slump or Mediocrity?

Through six games of the Buffalo Sabres season we’ve Lindy Ruff’s crew commit egregious errors in defensive zone coverage several times a game, in virtually every game.  More times than not these mistakes have ended up in the twine behind Ryan Miller, and Buffalo has dropped four straight contests as a result.  Are these missteps a sign of a team that is in a slump, and hasn’t...
