Randall Ritchey: Chatting With Former Blues Defensemen, Jay McKee

Jay Mckee made a career in the NHL by sacrifice. He was primarily known as a defensive defensemen, who would sacrifice life and limb to block a shot.

Trip to Philadelphia a test of young Sabres’ character

Ted Nolan remembers what it was like to take a young team into Philadelphia. The Flyers are tough, aggressive and their fans are passionate. It’s not an easy place to play.

Nolan hopes to see a bit of that come alive with his current...

Now Do You Believe?

It seems like such a cliché to start something about Jason Pominville with Game 5 of the Ottawa series in the 2006 playoffs.  But really where else can something about Jason Pominville begin?  There are very few people in Buffalo who can’t vividly recall Pominville skating around Daniel Alfredsson, Jay McKee flying out of the penalty box, and Rick Jeanneret bellowing his now...

Jay McKee, Henrik Tallinder, Teppo Numminen and Dmitri Kalinin...
