It's no surprise the Buffalo Sabres are off to another rough start after finishing with the worst record in the NHL last season. Six months after winning the Presidents' Trophy, the Boston Bruins' rocky beginning is a bit more difficult to believe. Boston attempts to begin turning around its sluggish start by capitalizing on a visit to Buffalo on Saturday night. The Bruins...

High NHL draft pick would create delicious scenarios

So let’s say the Sabres finish in the bottom two of the NHL standings. How would things look in Buffalo next October? They’d look pretty darn good. The Sabres’ prospect pool, which already gets high marks, would add a future elite center in Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel through the draft. Heck, if you want to dream really big, you can picture them both in Buffalo. The Sabres...

  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.

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.
