Patrick Roy: “Strong Possibility” Grigorenko Stays With Buffalo

French-language newspaper La Presse in Montreal had some quotes from Quebec Remparts coach Patrick Roy yesterday concerning Mikhail Grigorenko, who has three games remaining with the Sabres before Darcy Regier and his crew have to make a decision on keeping him or sending him back to the QMJHL: "I begin to think that there is a strong possibility that Mikhail does not return...

Sabres Youth Movement Has Bright Future

Tyler Myers is the most experienced of the Sabres youngsters. Tyler Myers, Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, Cody Hogdson, and Mikhail Grigorenko. What do they all have in common besides playing on the Sabres? The answer; They’re all 23 or younger and currently have or will have prominent roles with the Sabres in the coming years.

Culture Change Paying Early Dividends For Buffalo Sabres

By: Connor Nielen (@ConnorNielen) For all of Ryan Miller’s career domination versus Toronto (a 27-14-0 record, .922 SV%, 2.44 GAA coming into this season), he found himself surprisingly unable to lead his Buffalo Sabres to victory at the Air Canada Centre on any of the team’s three attempts during the 2011-12 campaign. Playing the...

Sabres Special Teams Have Been Special

The Buffalo Sabres have played their first back to back series of this condensed 2013 NHL season and have come away with two regulation wins and four points.  As expected, rust and fatigue have reared their ugly heads at times during these contests, but what has carried the day for Lindy Ruff’s squad is the special teams.  In game one against Philadelphia the Sabres were 3-6...

The Tough Guy Misconception

Well, here we are. One game into the lockout-shortened season and there is already a misconception brewing about the boys in blue and gold: “This 2013 squad’s identity is TOUGHNESS!!!” After acquiring Steve Ott & John Scott in the off-season, Darcy & Co. did their part to add some grit to a team that many considered “soft.” Those additions to a team already populated...

Sabres 2, Maple Leafs 1

Ryan Miller stopped 34 shots to lead the Buffalo Sabres past the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Monday night. Miller lost his shutout bid when Nazem Kadri scored on the power play with 1:42 remaining, his second goal of the season. Toronto's Joffrey Lupul appeared to tie it seconds later with goalie Ben Scrivens on the bench, but the goal was disallowed. With Scrivens on the bench...

Sabres on their way after two wins

Well that was a fun couple of days, no? A 5-2 beat down of the Flyers followed by a near textbook road win against the Leafs and the Sabres have gotten off on the right foot for this shortened 2013 season. Sunday’s opener was about as sloppy as expected, as the Sabres and Flyers plodded through forty minutes of fairly average hockey before the Sabres third period explosion...

Sabres-Hurricanes Preview

The Buffalo Sabres are hoping a solid start by goalie Ryan Miller is a sign of good things to come. That's not so good for the Carolina Hurricanes, who have struggled to score coming out of the nine-month layoff. The visiting Sabres seek their best start in four seasons and look to hand the Hurricanes their worst in 15 years Thursday night in the opener of a home-and-home series...

Sabres Defeat Maple Leafs 2-1: Immediate Reactions

(Photo by Graig Abel/NHLI via Getty Images) The Buffalo Sabres got their second win of the young season in as many days with a 2-1 win over host Toronto in the Maple Leafs’ home opener on Monday night.  The win moves Buffalo to 2-0 on the season. Buffalo’s top line once again shined as Cody Hodgson, Thomas Vanek, and Jason Pominville all got on the score sheet once again. Hodgson...

#SabersMerfia – Lets not take things too seriously

Twitter is an interesting tool. If used properly it can be a great new gathering source for a sports fan, politics fanatic or someone who just wants to keep up with the Kardashians. As someone who is immersed in sports, I happen to use Twitter to not only connect with fans but to keep up with breaking news. During games Twitter is always a great barometer for how fans feel (track...
