It’s Been A Bad Year For The Buffalo Sabres

Detroit Red Wings Pull Within 1 Point of Clinching, Beat BUF 4-2

  The Detroit Red Wings take the last game of the season series against the Buffalo Sabres 4-2, sweeping them in the season series, and pulling to within 1 point of clinching a playoff berth. The first period was very uneventful for both sides. Play through the middle was choppy and passes for either side were very errant at times. Though a couple of good chances were generated...

Bruins start slow, collapse late; fall to Sabres in OT

It took a while, but once the Boston Bruins found their legs it seemed as if the Buffalo Sabres didn't stand a chance......that is, until Sabres' Matt Moulson slithered a puck underneath Boston starter Chad Johnson to tie the game at four with less than a minute to play, then Matt D'Agostini took advantage of a rare Zdeno Chara neutral zone error to score the game winner...

Bruins’ Rust, Mistakes Outweigh Positives In Overtime Loss To Sabres

The Boston Bruins did a lot of good things in their first game after the Olympic break against the Buffalo Sabres. But even that wasn’t enough to beat the NHL’s worst team. The Bruins were uneven in their first game since Feb. 8, and too many ill-timed mistakes cost the B’s in a 5-4 overtime loss to the lowly Sabres. Boston does get a point out of the disappointing defeat,...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – International BuffaLOVE

If you read last week’s column then you already know how I feel about the Olympics… If not, they’re officially over, WOO-HOO!

Canada-Latvia Olympic Hockey Live: Canadians Look To Clinch Spot In Semis

9:15 a.m. ET: Team Canada caught a break when Latvia upset Switzerland on Tuesday.
