Sabres-Oilers Preview

The Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers are the two worst teams in the NHL, and the Sabres are certainly deserving of that distinction as they're mired in the longest losing streak in franchise history.

Mikhail Grigorenko back from the brink

From Hometown Hockey: Somehow, Mikhail Grigorenko already feels like a restoration story. It’s easy to forget that he’s just 20-years-old, his entire future still shining very brightly ahead of him. But before this year, it seemed like that future had abruptly come to a screeching halt. Coming out of the 2012 NHL Draft, the Sabres […] The post Mikhail Grigorenko back from the...

Preview: Wild at Sabres

The Minnesota Wild have one win this month and are at the bottom of their division. Things are even worse for the Buffalo Sabres, who have yet to win in 2015 and also are looking up at the rest of the teams in their division.
