A combination of bad luck and shaky goaltending contributed to the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 loss in Toronto on Tuesday night. The Sabres were up 2-0 on goals by Kyle Okposo and Evander Kane when the Leafs began their comeback 32 seconds into the second period when they scored the first of four straight goals.
The guy is as entertaining in person as he is on the air. Rick Jeanneret has been doing the Sabres' play-by play since 1971, and hands down, probably without even being biased, he is the best in the NHL...
The Buffalo Sabres ended a two-game slide with Monday's 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars during a rare weekday matinee game. Tyler Ennis playing in his first game after missing the last 30 with a groin injury needed only 19 seconds to score giving the Sabres the lead and they never looked back.
Quite possibly the Buffalo Sabres have turned the corner. Since the first of the year they've taken seven of a possible eight points against some good hockey teams including Tuesday night's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
We remember him as a fighting hockey player. This week, he became a new dad. Congratulations to former Buffalo Sabre and Angola native Patrick Kaleta. He and his wife welcomed a new baby boy to the world Sunday night!
For two periods the Buffalo Sabres didn't have much going for them. The Winnipeg Jets effectively shut down the Sabres and had a wide edge in shots on goal. It all seemed to change when head coach Dan Balsyma ripped into his team during a TV timeout. From that point the Sabres outshot the Jets 26-9 while scoring three times in the third period for a 4-3 comeback victory.
The Buffalo Sabres were just two minutes away from winning a big game against the Blackhawks in Chicago when the Hawks tied the score forcing overtime and like he has so many times before, Buffalo-native Patrick Kane won it in overtime. The win extends the Blackhawks winning streak over the Sabres to 10 straight games.
After those two awful games against the Boston Bruins last week and Jack Eichel's comments critical of the team's efforts, the Buffalo Sabres responded in a big way Tuesday night with a 4-1 win over the Rangers in New York. And it just goes to prove that paying attention to details and making every shift count can make a huge difference.
The Buffalo Sabres appeared to be in a coma for most of the first half of Tuesday night's game at Key Bank Center. Give the Los Angeles Kings credit for smothering the Sabres and not allowing them to get anything done offensively, but after the Kings took a 2-0 lead Ryan O'Reilly led the comeback charge with a great individual effort to finally put the Sabres on the board. From there the floodgates seem to open and the Sabres broke thru for a 6-3 win.
