Bruins Bartkowski will not face hearing

Bartkowski/Gionta is an example of incidental head contact on an otherwise full body check. pic.twitter.com/iCAyDjRwsN— NHL Player Safety (@NHLPlayerSafety) December 22, 2014I told a friend of mine that if Brian Gionta was taller, he wouldn't have been injuried.

VIDEO: Matt Bartkowski Knocks Brian Gionta Out Of Game

Matt Bartkowski is 6’1″, Brian Gionta is 5’7″. A lot of hits on Gionta are going to be high due to the simple fact that his head lines up with the shoulders of most NHL players (or rib cage if you are Chara). So if the outrage and resulting fallout over this hit Bartkowski laid on Gionta is that it was a high hit, then I’m not buying. However if the league doles out...

Sabres’ Andrej Meszaros Scores Against Former Team To Tie Score (Video)

Andrej Meszaros scored just two goals in 14 games during his brief stop in Boston last season, but that didn’t stop the Buffalo Sabres defenseman from getting a little revenge against his former team Sunday night. With the Bruins ahead by a goal early in the second period, Buffalo broke free on a three-on-one rush. Johan Larsson made a quick drop pass to Chris Stewart, who connected...

Which Former Sabres Captain Was The Last Bruin To Wear No. 81?

The Buffalo Sabres are an oddity in today’s NHL in that they don’t have a captain. Of course, that hasn’t always been the case. With frequent roster turnover in recent years, the Sabres have had 12 different captains since the 2001-02 season. One of those players played for the Bruins at one point in his career and is the last Bruins player to wear...

. 2ITB_Buffalo: Backups help contribute to Sabres inspiring run

Coping without the Sabres tank job by @LukeWachob

The Sabres are 9 points ahead of the last-place Edmonton Oilers. They are 4 points behind the Boston Bruins. We might as well say it now: The Tank is dead. Long live The Tank. I’ve been a vocal advocate of the Sabres’ apparently-deliberate strategy of tanking to get top draft picks in 2014 and 2015. It’s a simple philosophy: if you’re going to blow up and rebuild, do it...

The Most Buffalo Thing Ever

From Hometown Hockey: I hate to be “that guy”, but I’m going to do it anyway. The Buffalo Sabres are enjoying a nice little run after starting the 2014-15 season in hilariously awful fashion, having won 10 of their last 13 games, with a shootout victory over the Ottawa Senators being the latest on Monday […] The post The Most Buffalo Thing Ever appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Detroit should trade for Tyler Myers

Many hockey fans are complaining that the reported asking price for Buffalo Sabres defenseman, Tyler Myers is simply too high.At first glance that may be the case: Prospect Dylan Larkin, a roster player along the lines of a Riley Sheahan or Tomas Jurco, and a first-round pick. Still, if I were the Detroit Red Wings I would take the gamble. It is not everyday you will find a 6' foot...

Report: Sabres ready to trade Chris Stewart

The Buffalo Sabres are ready and willing to trade Chris Stewart. After Stewart was used as a healthy scratch, the writing was more or less on the wall that the club was prepared to move on. This rumor has been around for several weeks, but some more fuel was added to the fire in a new Pierre LeBrun column. “Chris Stewart was a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Los Angeles...

Peter Chiarelli Please Pass On Chris Stewart

Last night Peter Chiarelli was in Buffalo and the rumor is that he was once again scouting Chris Stewart. There’s been rumors floated before that the Bruins were interested in Stewart and if there’s a fire sale in Buffalo as Tanksgiving continues then the Bruins would be in on him. Chris Stewart is, at best, a poor man’s Milan Lucic. I’m sure a lot of people love the idea of...

Ranking the Sabres alternate jerseys by @2ITB_Buffalo

Things went off the rails last year when the Buffalo Sabres unveiled their newest alternate uniform that has since become known as the Turd Jersey (or #TurdJersey). It was the fourth alternate sweater designed by the Sabres and is by far the worst alternate jersey ever to grace an NHL ice surface. In honor of tonight’s Second Annual Black and Red Night, I thought I’d honor the...

How NBCSN can replace every Buffalo Sabres game left on their schedule

The Buffalo Sabres are an awful hockey team. They stand at 3-12-2 just 18 games into the 2013-14 NHL regular season. That’s worst in the league, currently setting them up with the best chance at picking first overall in a loaded 2015 NHL Draft. There’s certainly hope for the future, but none of it should be allocated to this season. Why is that a problem? Because NBCSN, in their...
