Tweet of the Moment 2/4/16

Timeout Boston with 31.2 seconds left and faceoff in their zone. 2-2. — Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) February 5, 2016 I would certainly say that this is a great time to reevaluate their place in the world. Tied with Buffalo and a faceoff in your own zone is pretty bottom of the barrel. Get well soon, Bruins.

Bruins-Sabres Preview

Road success helped the Boston Bruins work back into the thick of the Eastern Conference race prior to the All-Star break, and that's where they will have to steady themselves following a disappointing homestand. The Bruins start a road-heavy stretch on Thursday night by opening a home-and-home set against the Buffalo Sabres. Boston (26-18-6) ended a miserable 2-7-1 stretch with...

Jack Eichel's first game-worn jersey fetches a pretty penny at auction

NHL players often keep memorabilia from most of their "firsts" at the professional level, but apparently Buffalo Sabres rookie Jack Eichel is not overly sentimental. The 19-year-old did not keep his first game-worn jersey, as the sweater was included in an auction to benefit the Buffalo Sabres Foundation. It's only fitting that Eichel set an impressive precedent in the auction....

Jack Eichel making a push for Calder Trophy

Don’t look now, but the Calder Trophy race us suddenly a lot closer than everyone may have originally thought. For the bulk of the season, Chicago Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin has been the clear-cut favorite.

Sabres coach Bylsma explains the secret to knowing when Eichel will be at his best

Jack Eichel has been on fire lately for the Buffalo Sabres.
