Video: Allows Tanner Glass to pull shirt down
First and foremost:
Okay, sorry, that was weighing on us.
Now that THAT'S out of the way...
This game was a matinee.
A MATINEE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE THIS INTENSE.
Seriously guys, we need to have a talk about when and where to have moments like this, and that discussion will end in us deciding that Sunday afternoon games are not the time to have us all rolling...
In a surprise move, Lindy Ruff is healthy scratching robust, burly D Mike Weber.
Cody McCormick and TJ Brennan will also sit this one out.
Why is Lindy compromising the grit and tenacity of his lineup by sitting a guy who has arguably been his...
Cody McCormick is a thick, robust winger/centre who plays like a linebacker on ice. Heâs very effective against the Boston Bruins during his Sabres career. Cody wonât score many goals or dangle enemy goalies, however, his true value to his team is to play the role of bar bouncer and to keep the Bruins honest. Looks Lindy Ruff will be sitting McCormick tonight, according...
The post Cody McCormick appeared first on Queen City Sports.
After placing Adam Pardy on waivers, and barring any moves before today's 5:00 p.m. deadline, the Sabres have their roster set at 23 for the season opener Sunday afternoon against the Flyers.
Assuming that neither Nathan Gerbe nor Cody McCormick will be ready to play due to injuries, the forward lines will likely look like this:
Vanek - Hodgson - Pominville
Foligno - Ennis...
Day #15 of Sabres in focus - Cody McCormick
It's tough to tell how much playing time Cody McCormick will actually get. Two seasons ago he played in 81 games, but this season he played in just 50.
He's not going to put up many points, but maybe with the additions of John Scott and Steve Ott, McCormick will have less fighting to do. That may lead to a slight increase...
OK, I emailed the Avs guy right after the signing, thinking this guy would be our 4th center. However, the consensus seems to be that he'll be chilling in the minors next year. But remember how guys like Matt Ellis and Cody McCormick were vets from other NHL teams and started off in the minors for the Sabres, only to then be brought up and become regulars because of injuries...
It's so easy, even Bucky can do it.
The title of General Manager of the Sabres is a hot commodity these days, I guess. Apparently there's a lot of people who think they could do a better job than Darcy Regier. It seems to be a fun enough gig, anyway.
So, live from my mother's basement (I am, in fact, writing this from my mother's basement. It's nice and cool...
Not only is today Cody McCormick's birthday, but it is mine as well.
I came up with a few games that have happened on this day in Sabres history. If you have any more, leave them in the comments and I'll add them in.
2007 - The Sabres defeated the Islanders by a 4-2 score to take a 3-1 series lead in the first round of the NHL playoffs. Chris Drury scored a pair of...
Tuesday night at Verizon Center was the biggest game of the season for the Washington Capitals. In fact, it could be argued that this was the biggest regular season game played inside the Phone Booth in four years.
“[It’s going to be] like the seventh game of the playoffs,” said Dale Hunter earlier in the week.
Boy, was it ever. For this Capitals franchise, at least...
Drew Stafford scored a pair of goals as the visiting Buffalo Sabres extended their winning streak to five games and took over sole possession of eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a 5-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.
Ryan Miller turned aside a season-high 44 shots to win his fifth straight start. The Sabres moved two points ahead of Washington and closed within...
The Sabres returned to the First Niagara ice surface this morning to install their game plan for the Boston Bruins, who defeated St. Louis on Wednesday night.
All Sabres skated, save Brad Boyes. its not known if Boyes is injured, sick or if he was given a maintenance day.
Burley winger/centre Cody McCormick was back skating with his mates. He's been off the ice with...
The Sabres skated at 11:30am at First Niagara Center. They will fly to Philly this afternoon.
@billhoppenhl reports that Cody McCormick, Brad Boyes, and Robyn Regehr were not on the ice today. McCormick has an upper body injury. Boyes and Regehr? Maintenance?
Lindy Ruff's pressed "shuffle" on his line trios today. Here are the lines that skated together...
It’s amazing how much a week changes the feeling about your hockey team. One week ago we were entering a game against the Rangers, which we came out of with a 1-0 victory and 5 game winning streak and felt very strong about this team. We then lost in a shootout to St.Louis and didn’t feel awful about it as we got a point and let the other just slip away but coming off the performance...
The Buffalo Sabres have recalled rookie forward Zack Kassian from Rochester of the AHL.
It's the third time the Sabres' 2009 first-round draft pick has been called up this season. Saturday's move comes a day after forward Cody McCormick was hurt in a 3-2 shootout win over Dallas.
Kassian has three goals and three assists in 19 games with Buffalo this season.

Miller and Gustavsson lead their respective teams out of the rooms and onto the ice.
Sabres in sexy road white. Leafs in their blues. I like it. Bust that slump whichever way you have to, boys!
Derek Roy is front and centre. He must lift the baby grand piano off his back tonight!
@Roy9ner's return must mean another night on press row for...
The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Corey Tropp from the minors to fill in for injured center Cody McCormick.
Buffalo's 2007 third-round draft pick rejoins the Sabres a week after making his NHL debut, in which he had a goal and assist in four games. Tropp also has four goals and three assists in 11 games this season with Rochester of the American Hockey League.

Tanner Glass is the Hugh Jackman of the NHL, in that he has two very distinct sides. He's a real softie, pretty much incapable of turning down a charity opportunity (such as when he raised nearly $10,000 playing Scrabble with some loser blogger for the Canucks For Kids Fund), but he's also a noted pugilist, more than willing to bash a face in, should the opportunity arise...
The Winnipeg Jets’ Tanner Glass is anything but fragile.
The moderate scrapper exchanged rapid punches with the Buffalo Sabres’ Cody McCormick during Tuesday’s game in Buffalo, leaving a bit of red on the ice.
It didn’t appear until a rough takedown by Glass that McCormick started to bleed. He was escorted to the back for examination and a bit of repairs.
The Sabres were back at it today.
Lindy Ruff and the coaches worked the troops for 45 minutes.
The Tampa games are dead and buried. The players have turned the page to Columbus.
I spent some time with Cody McCormick after the skate. He, Matt Ellis, and Brad Boyes were one of Buffalo's better forward units on Tuesday night. They play an honest game. No flash and dash...
