Sabres winger Evander Kane and Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic dropped the gloves three times in Tuesday’s game. The two fought twice in the second period and once in the third.
According to a report from the Buffalo News, Buffalo Sabres winger Evander Kane is under investigation by the Buffalo police for an alleged “sex offense.” There’s not much more firm information than that at the moment. From the report:
With Edmonton’s Connor McDavid out for the foreseeable future, let’s go to Buffalo for a Jack Eichel highlight.
Here’s a slice from the past: What appears to be the 1985 Buffalo Sabres sang an anti-drug song for the children. A nice person uploaded it to YouTube so we could all enjoy the hockey hair and awkward dancing.
Sabres center Jack Eichel, who, if Connor McDavid didn’t exist, would be getting more hype and pressure than any rookie since Sidney Crosby, scored his first of many NHL goals at 9:11 of the third period of Buffalo’s 3-1 loss to Ottawa. On the power play, Eichel floated around from behind the net, took a cross-ice…
According to radio station CFPL and confirmed by Ontario Provincial Police, Buffalo Sabres forward Ryan O’Reilly was arrested last Thursday and charged with impaired driving in Lucan, Ont., as well as failing to remain at the scene of a traffic accident. In a very Canadian twist, police say O’Reilly crashed his green…
Above is video of Sam Gagner's overtime goal to put the Coyotes over the Sabres. The game was in Buffalo, yet the crowd cheered the Arizona winner. Cheered loudly, and spontaneously, to the point where if you're not a hockey fan, you might wonder if Coyotes fans travel particularly well. (They do not. And if Yotes…
Winnipeg's unworkable relationship with Evander Kane is over. The disgruntled winger, recently placed on season-ending IR, is heading to Buffalo, along with Zach Bogosian and a prospect. In return, the Sabres will send the Jets Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, two prospects, and a first-round draft pick.
Last night, Sabres pest Patrick Kaleta punched himself in the head. Really! Look:
Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons remains on track to start the NHL All-Star Game, with 82 percent of his league-leading vote total coming from his native Latvia.
The Florida Panthers showed a video before Saturday night's game against the Sabres, contrasting Buffalo's awful, cold weather with Florida's ideal conditions. The gag used photos from Buffalo's deadly November snowstorm, and Sabres owner Terry Pegula, who was in attendance, did not appreciate the joke.
As Tyler Ennis skated towards the net early in Buffalo's game yesterday, Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin probably thought he had done a decent job shepherding him to away from a dangerous position. Then Ennis managed to kick the puck past the crease, hurdle Carey Price's pads, and then slap a no-look backhander into…
Being a Buffalo sports fan can be pretty depressing. The Bills are, at best, mediocre and remain the only franchise to lose four Super Bowls in a row while winning zero. The Sabres offer little relief, having also won zero championships and promising to be one of the worst teams in the NHL this season. Buffalonians…
I went to a couple of Manchester Monarchs games while Justin Johnson was on the AHL squad. He was proficient at pummeling dudes, racking up 11 points and 392 penalty minutes in 103 games with Manchester. The Islanders called him up from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this season, presumably to do similar tasks for them.
Christian Ehrhoff of the Sabres doesn't understand the concept of oversharing, because he tweeted a few photos of his ear after a puck cut it open tonight in Buffalo's game against the Flyers.
Though the Tampa Bay Lightning were on a delayed penalty, they still somehow surrendered a goal last night. Steven Stamkos is a scoring machine that doesn't have time to distinguish nets, dammit.
The Buffalo Sabres traded Ryan Miller (as well as captain Steve Ott) to the St. Louis Blues last night and the move left them a little light in the backup goaltending department. Meet Ryan Vinz: former Sabres video scout, current director of hockey technology at a company in Buffalo, and never, at any competitive…
The area could get a foot and a half of snow by tomorrow morning, so the Sabres have called off tonight's game against the Hurricanes.
I know this might be hard to believe, but once upon a time, the Buffalo Sabres were fun.
