The Buffalo Sabres are having a rough season, to say the least. It has gotten so bad that they have been shut out over the last two games and there really is not much to get excited about.

But WNY hockey fans will recognize a familiar name that has been having some success this season. Patrick Kane grew up playing hockey in the Buffalo and WNY area and has gone on to be one of the NHL's best scorers. Kane had and incredible goal in a game against Detroit on Sunday night.

It sure is fun to watch this type of hockey.Perhaps the Buffalo Sabres can turn things around this week. There is just under half of the regular season left with a game against the Rangers on Tuesday up next.
