Stevie Johnson hasn’t had the best of weeks.
First, he left last Thursday night’s loss to Cleveland after suffering a back injury that he couldn’t play through, and now he has been excused from the team due to a death in the family.

Two years ago, Tyler Myers signed a seven-year contract extension to remain a Buffalo Sabre for the foreseeable future and become the team’s top defenseman. Unfortunately, however, things haven’t gone according to plan.

Oh Buffalo, you know how to tug on my heartstrings. Coming off of a huge victory against the Baltimore Ravens, the Bills lost their lone primetime appearance of the season to the Cleveland Browns.
