Sabres buckle down, beat Avalanche

BUFFALO – At times, Thursday’s 2-0 win probably felt a bit unsettling for the Sabres. The woeful Colorado Avalanche, the NHL’s worst team, isn’t just bad. The club’s on pace to be one of the worst this century. So it was hardly surprising the Sabres mostly had their way with the Avalanche. Still, after two periods, they had a 21-11 shot advantage but only a 1-0 lead thanks...

Total Eclipse of the Reinhart

Apparently January 10th is Sam Reinhart day. Last year, he scored his first career hat trick on January 10th and he followed it up with another three point night yesterday. Reinhart scored a goal and two assists with four shots in the 4-1 win over the Flyers. It almost feels a bit disappointing because he missed a wide open net that I'd expect a high school player to bury. Regardless...

Figure skating giving many NHL players a cutting edge

Every professional athlete looks to gain an edge whenever possible. For hockey players, the game is evolving to be more about speed than ever before, so finding a way to add some speed on skates is essential. That has led some NHL players to lace up with some figure skating experts to fine tune their skating skills. This isn’t straight out of the 1992 film The Cutting Edge, in...

Reinhart rallies Sabres to 3-2 comeback win over Jets

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Sam Reinhart tied the game and then set up Jack Eichel's go-ahead goal 4:07 into the third period Saturday, rallying the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. The loss mathematically eliminated the Jets from playoff contention in a matchup of teams out of the postseason picture. Buffalo won consecutive games for the first time since winning...

Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart are showing signs of a promising future for the Sabres

To put it rather bluntly, the Buffalo Sabres have not been anything to write home about. After a bevy of promising moves this offseason including bringing in names like Dan Bylsma and Ryan O’ Reilly, many were expecting the Sabres to surprise the Atlantic Conference. What they have gotten this year was anything but surprising as they were once again near the bottom of the league...

Evaluating a season of growth for prospect Sam Reinhart

Sam Reinhart had an early audition with the Sabres at the beginning of the season, but after he played in his allotted number of games, Reinhart was sent back to play another year of junior hockey. Reinhart, who spent most of his time with Buffalo on the bottom two lines playing against players who were much bigger and stronger than him, was charged with adding more bulk and refining...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Players Embracing The Tank?

Last week Sam Reinhart went on record saying “”I’ll secretly be rooting that he (McDavid) will be coming to the Sabres.” At first I thought, “ya, who isn’t?” But then I got to really thinking about it & it began to bother me more & more… Actual players on the Sabres are now embracing the tank? Get the f**k out. Obviously Reinhart isn’t up with the team...
