Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan met with the media this morning.  During the session Nolan revealed forward Patrick Kaleta will begin traveling with the team and should return to the lineup in a "couple weeks."  Listen to Nolan's...
Survive and advance is something you generally hear from broadcasters and coaches during the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  Close games for top seeds against upset minded underdogs get you plenty of chatter about it. The 2014 Bills are hardly a top seed...
I was coming to grips with the 2014 Bills season essentially coming to an end in week seven.  Then Kyle Orton and the Bills offense produced a miracle ending.   Think about exactly what happened during the Bills 17-16 victory over a stunned Minnesota...
Isn’t it amazing what you can do when you use the player that you traded your first round pick next year for? As bad as the Bills and Kyle Orton were in this game, Orton overcame a lot on the final drive.   There was 3:07 left when the Bills...
It was a rough start for the Bills offensively as they drove deep into Minnesota territory, only to turn the ball over thanks to a Chris Hogan fumble. The defense held true, but on the very next offensive possession it was Robert Woods who coughed it up, leading...
The Buffalo Sabres put in a better effort on Saturday night, but the result was the same. The blue and gold were shut out by the Boston Bruins 4-0 at First Niagara Center.   A pair of goals from the Bruins’ blue line helped them neutralize the...
Ted Nolan will have no trouble with the effort in the first period. His team worked and battled, but there was one glaring difference, Boston planted bodies in front of the Sabres net and scored two goals that Jhonas Enroth never saw. Buffalo got 16 shots...
The Sabres face a Bruins teams that has started 2-4-0 and has only scored 11 goals in six games.   Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic still have not scored a goal.   Tuukka Rask is also struggling to start with a 2.90 goals against and .870 save percentage....
Ted Nolan has decided to sit Sam Reinhart and play Brian Flynn against the Bruins. Nolan demoted the second overall pick to the fourth line two games ago and thinks Reinhart needs to see things differently, “Why do you sit out anybody?” Nolan asked....
After getting their first win of the season in Carolina on Tuesday, the Sabres looked pretty bad in period one here at home.   Despite giving up 16 shots, Jhonas Enroth steered them all away.   There was very little passion and the only time...
Welcome once again into the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box, high atop ice level at First Niagara Center. The Buffalo Sabres look to make it two wins in a row as they take on the Florida Panthers. The blue and gold lost out in the 2014 NHL Draft Lottery to...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 Another week, another time that we SHOULD be focusing on a monster game in Tallahassee on a Saturday night, but instead are worrying about a 20 year old kid getting paid for writing his name. I'm not going to preach...
After just one game of sitting out, Andrej Mezsaros is back in the Sabres lineup. Mezsaros has struggled mightily this season, but Ted Nolan thinks he’s one of their best defensemen, “He’s going to be one of our top four defensemen and you...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter: @SalSports   After playing their first six games against teams with 21 combined wins (the most in the NFL going into this week for any team’s opponents), the Bills now enter a portion of their schedule they need...
By the end of the dreadful 2013-14 season, there was only a handful of Buffalo Sabres players remaining that were worth the price of admission. One of the few was young forward Zemgus Girgensons, who had worked his way from the fourth line...
Ted Nolan challenged his team and in the first 40 minutes, they responded. Things fell apart in the third period, however, and Carolina erased a two-goal deficit to force overtime and the shootout before Buffalo won it on Zemgus Girgensons' 8th-round attempt....
Ted Nolan said he can’t sit out 10 guys so Andrej Meszaros has earned his turn to be scratched. Tyson Strachan takes his place.   In all the time I’ve been around Ted Nolan, this is probably the maddest and most upset I’ve seen him...
Some mistakes are defensible. Some are not. Here are some examples. Drafting EJ Manuel in the first round: defensible. The Bills needed a quarterback and everyone knew it. The Bills chose to use their highest 2013 draft pick on one, which is the best...
After almost five years, Jeff Quinn is done as the head coach of University at Buffalo football.   With the team in a bye week coming off a conference loss to a 1-4 Eastern Michigan team, athletic director Danny White announced Monday afternoon that...
During a press conference held at the First Niagara Center Monday afternoon, NHL commisioner announced Buffalo would host the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The Draft will be held on June 24th and 25th of 2016. The Sabres last hosted the draft in 1998, two years after...
Ted Nolan will go with Michal Neuvirth in goal this afternoon against the Ducks. With back to back games, Nolan will likely go back to Jhonas Enroth Tuesday in Carolina.   Nolan will also make a lineup change, but it’s not the one that you’re...
Well it was fun while it lasted, this idea that maybe the Bills were finally ready to pass the Patriots.  New England didn't prove that they are still great by beating the Bills on Sunday. They did manage to spoil all of our new owner fun and serve...
That darn Lucy. She did it to us again.  She pulled out the football and this time we were REALLY convinced we were actually going to kick it.  Instead, here we are laying flat on our back and wondering how do we keep falling for this? Just when...
I’m not going to lie to you, I didn’t see the Bills defensive performance coming. After a big performance against the Lions in Detroit, they were absolutely pathetic against New England. That was especially true in the second half when they scored...
On Nov. 9, 2013, Rochester Americans’ goaltender Nathan Lieuwen allowed seven goals in a loss to the Binghamton Senators. Until Saturday night, he had only allowed more than three goals in a game two times. And up until the 17 minute mark of the third...
You had to know the Blackhawks were going to come out flying in their home opener and the Sabres had no answers early. Chicago scored two goals in the first 2:52, but to Buffalo’s credit, it did recover.   The first goal came at :59 when Andrej...
Feeding off the energy of the crowd in their home opener, the Chicago Blackhawks came out firing, netting the first goal of the game just :59 seconds in. The goal coming off a point shot by Andrew Shaw which skipped past Jhonas Enroth,...
The University at Buffalo Bulls dropped their second Mid-American Conference game in a row after a 37-27 loss at Eastern Michigan Saturday.   The Bulls (3-4, 1-2) trailed by just three at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but suddenly – just...
Just like everybody in Western New York, Chicago Blackhawks All Star Patrick Kane is very excited the Bills are now owned by Terry Pegula, “It seems like he’s trying to recreate the city of Buffalo by himself. He’s done a lot of good things...
In 16 games with the Rochester Americans, between the playoffs and a short stint at the end of the regular season, Mikhail Grigorenko had not scored a goal. He also had not dropped the gloves. On Friday night’s 6-1 win against the Adirondack...
An emotional scene at One Bills Drive this afternoon, as Terry and Kim Pegula were officially introduced as the owners of the Buffalo Bills. Terry Pegula was humbled when he saw the fans reaction to the news that his family had won the bid for the franchise...
University at Buffalo Bulls junior running back Anthone Taylor attacks defenders like he’s trying to knock over a garbage truck. He gets low. He drives. He competes.   Taylor doesn’t think of rushing as a strongman competition, though. He...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 It's been a pretty quiet week of college football. No real surprises, just chalk up and down the board with no close games to speak of. Except not at all. Last Saturday was chaos in a bottle and I loved every second...
The opener was a tough game defensively for the Sabres has they allowed numerous odd man rushes and 40 shots on Jhonas Enroth.   Buffalo had three new defensemen in the lineup in Josh Gorges, Andre Benoit and Andrej Meszaros. For most of his career...

 Adam Benigini of Channel 2 WGRZ is reporting the Sabres will host the 2016 draft. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will meet with city and team representitives on Monday.  
The Sabres got off to a quick start with Tyler Ennis setting up two great opportunities for Matt Moulson and Andre Benoit, but after that, Buffalo’s play was really sloppy which led to turnovers which led to three Columbus power plays.   Artem...
Welcome back, high atop ice level at First Niagara Center as the Buffalo Sabres raise the curtain on the 2014-15 season. It really does not seem that long ago that the 2013-14 season drew to a close and our attention switched to the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Tonight...
It’s opening night for the Buffalo Sabres and Columbus Blue Jackets. There of course is the excitement that the first game brings and here is no different.   With a new season and many new faces Ted Nolan took his players back to his heritage...
The Buffalo Sabres skated in blue, red, teal and yellow jerseys on the ice at First Niagara Center on Wednesday morning as their owners stood in front of a throng of media, dressed well enough to attend a wedding. As the Sabres’ skates...
Jeremy White whitey@wgr550.com @JeremyWGR The Buffalo Bills opened the Kyle Orton era with a road win, as he passed the 300 yard mark in his first start with the team.  Orton's game got better as the game progressed, while the Bills front...

By the time practice ended on Monday, the Sabres still hadn’t cut their roster down to 23 and still hadn’t named the captain.   Mikhail Grigorenko and Zac Dalpe were sent to Rochester. Dalpe still has to clear waivers.   Jake McCabe...
It was a career day for former University at Buffalo running back Branden Oliver against the New York Jets.   In San Diego’s 31-0 win Sunday, the undrafted rookie free agent scored his first two NFL touchdowns, finishing an all-around game with...
Quite a tumultuous week in Bills-land y'all.  The benching of the franchise quarterback wanna-be carried the beginning of the week and the decision was validated by the Bills gutting out a 17-14 win in Detroit. A largely ugly game got pretty hot...
What a way for the Bills to honor their late owner Ralph Wilson. Sunday was the last game of the Wilson era and his beloved Bills went into his hometown and upset Detroit.   Buffalo got some luck along the way and it makes you wonder if Mr. Wilson looked...
Ron Brooks suffered a head/neck injury in the first quarter, landing square on the top of his head after being flipped during punt coverage. Brooks stayed down and was strapped to a gurney, but offered a wave to the crowd while being carted off. ...
The University at Buffalo Bulls were still up five points when kicker Patrick Clarke missed a 33-yard field goal with three minutes left, yet somehow it felt like they had already lost.   On 4th and 2 from the Bowling Green 16-yard line, UB elected...
Early in this game the Sabres looked like a team that was playing its last exhibition game. Right off the hop, Rasmus Ristolainen gave the puck away forcing Michal Neuvirth to make a good save on a wrap around.   About 3.5 minutes in, Chad LaRose,...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter: @SalSports   The Lions are 3-1. They are a very good team with tons of talent.  Not a lot of places to attack.  The Bills certainly have their hands full Sunday.  So, I went back and looked at the games...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 Judgement Week, time to separate the contenders from the pretenders, the men from the boys, etc. Pick your cliche', it applies to this weekend in college football. If last night's astronomical upset of the number...
The Sabres will start Michal Neuvirth in goal for their final preseason game against the Canes.   Staying home and not playing are Tyler Ennis, Chris Stewart, Mike Weber, Andre Benoit and Brian Gionta.   Buffalo is 2-2-1 in the preseason with...
The University at Buffalo Bulls head to Bowling Green, Ohio to take on the Falcons in their second Mid-American Conference matchup this season.   With an identical record to the Bulls (3-2, 1-0), Bowling Green is coming off a 47-42 win against UMass...
Pretend for a moment that the first time you saw Mikhail Grigorenko was during his preseason games with the Buffalo Sabres this year. What would your first impression be? You’d say he is big, is always on the puck, makes slick passes...
Jhonas Enroth got two games in during the preseason and did very well. He allowed just one goal on 58 shots and he’ll sit and watch as Michal Neuvirth plays the last game.   Now Enroth has to sit for a week until the regular season starts and...
Let me say right up front, I know the Caps lineup was not their best. Missing were Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Matt Niskanen.   With that out of the way, the Sabres played a very complete game.   Tyler Ennis has played three...
The Sabres have sent seven players to Rochester. Heading to Amerks training camp are Andrey Makarov, Nathan Lieuwen, Joel Armia, Matt Ellis, Tim Schaller, Drew Bagnall and Nick Petrecki.   Ellis and Bagnall must pass through waivers.   That leaves...
Jeremy White WGR Sportsradio 550 Whitey@wgr550.com @JereyWGR EJ Manuel's performance against the Houston Texans has brought about a change at quarterback.  In this week's review of the All-22, Jeremy White looks into Manuel's struggles,...
Ted Nolan has been preaching for two weeks now that any ice time that a player gets, he’ll earn.   Mikhail Grigorenko has had some very good practices during training camp and played well in Washington and Toronto. He scored a nice goal against...
The FCC has unanimously voted to drop the NFL’s blackout rule, meaning the NFL can no longer insist on network blackouts via an FCC policy that previously gave the NFL the ability to enforce blackouts.   This decision, however, does not necessarily...
The Federal Communications Commission has voted to end "sports blackout" rules. The NFL can still circumvent the FCC ruling by agreeing with its rights-holders to continue blacking out games. However, the FCC could continue...
Sabres defenseman Andre Benoit started his professional career in 2005 with the Hamilton Bulldogs. He never got to the NHL until the 2010 season with Ottawa. He played eight games with the Senators and was never a regular in the NHL until 2013 when he...
Andrej Makarov did not look good at all in Traverse City and hasn’t looked much better in practice.   I wasn’t expecting much in Toronto on Sunday, but in the first period the kid was great.   He spent the first 10 minutes seeing...
EJ Manuel is making life very difficult.  Unfortunately he isn't making it difficult on the opposition, something NFL quarterbacks are supposed to do.  The Bills second year QB is making the Bills fan base squirm. As for me, I have maintained...
I try. Honestly, there may not be anything I work harder at.  Trying to avoid the fatalistic, here we go again, tragic comedy feeling that is a 14 year streak of non playoff football seasons.  It starts with me not posting on Twitter during the Bills...
UB Bulls running back Anthone Taylor plays Miami (Ohio) like he’s mad.   And he is, to an extent.   The Buckeye State native said postgame that the program rescinded a scholarship offer to him back in high school. And though...
We’re all familiar with Ryan Fitzpatrick, his strengths and shortcomings as a starting quarterback. But one thing he never had during his time in Buffalo was multiple options as dangerous as Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. While Stevie...
There were only 14 combined shots in the first period against the Leafs, but five of them went into the net.   Michal Neuvirth didn’t get a lot of help on the first two goals, but he also doesn’t look ready to play giving up three goals...
The Sabres have assigned 11 players to Rochester and have returned two players to their respective junior clubs. Buffalo’s training camp roster is now at 38 players, 21 forwards, 12 defensemen and five goaltenders.   The following players have...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 So I know last week I made a big stink about how the powerhouse matchups are here to stay, and for the rest of the year you can press your couch down to the floor and scrape every chip out of the cushions as you watch...
Cody Hodgson gets his first preseason game tonight as the Sabres host the Leafs. Hodgson will play left wing with Sam Reinhart and Brian Gionta.   The Tyler Ennis line is back for its second straight game with Matt Moulson and Drew Stafford.  ...
University at Buffalo football opens up Mid-American Conference play Saturday at UB Stadium against Miami (Ohio).   Even for all the assurances that each game matters, players and coaches agree that this is when the season begins because this is where...
Thursday was the first time I got a chance to watch Jack Eichel play and I wasn’t disappointed. Eichel is a player mentioned in the same breath with Connor McDavid for next June’s draft.   Many players slow down when they get the puck, but...
Greg Bauch/Thom Cich Reporting Twitter: @ThomWGR     Mike Schopp and the Bulldog once again held an open forum for their 'Earth Sports Fortress of Pantheon' on Tuesday. The idea behind the creation was to gather the...
You can count me as one person that is in agreement with the way Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan is evaluating his players. The “eye test” is the best way to judge young talent, in my view, and should be the primary tool used to make judgments...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter @SalSports When the Bills are on offense Get in my belly!   The Texans are the 2nd worst-team in the league when it comes to rushing yards allowed per play at 5.18, and 25th in the NFL allowing over 141 yards...
The Sabres only got one shift out of Mark Pysyk on Tuesday before he left with an upper body injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and Ted Nolan said, “It’s not real serious, it’s probably day to day. It could be a week or two.”...
The third annual USA All-American Prospects game is in Buffalo on Thursday. It’s the second time the Sabres have hosted the event.   Highly touted Jack Eichel will play in this game and will be coached by former Sabre Mike Grier.   With...
As the game started I thought I’d have a lot to talk about. The Tyler Ennis line with Matt Moulson and Drew Stafford was buzzing and produced two dandy opportunities for Moulson on Anton Khudobin.   Early in the period Buffalo had a 6-1 shots...
The development of a young quarterback will, quite often, feature ups and downs early on, and EJ Manuel's performance in the Bills loss to San Diego was most certainly a down.  This week's All-22 review from Jeremy White highlights just how many...
Attention Sabres players, A new season is upon you, and like most of the last 35 years I’m probably as excited as most of you are. A chill in the air, that sound of puck on stick, seeing my kids light up when SabreTooth comes to our section …...
The Sabres have confirmed what I started reporting on Saturday, the club returned nine players to their respective junior clubs.   Gone are forwards Joseph Blandisi (Barrie, OHL), Eric Cornel (Peterborough, OHL), Michael Joly (Rimouski, QMJHL), Vaclav...
It’ll be a more veteran lineup for the home preseason opener against Carolina tonight. Jhonas Enroth gets his first game in net since injuring his leg last March. Nathan Lieuwen, who played the whole game in Washington will backup.   Tonight’s...
We’ve hit the age of analytics in all sports. Some teams have resisted it, but in the past year several have embraced it.   This past summer our Matthew Coller told you how Tim Murray uses analytics, but Ted Nolan doesn’t think of it in...
The Sabres prospects played four games in Traverse City and now the big club played its first preseason game in Washington and so far, the team still can’t score.   Buffalo was shutout by the Caps 1-0 as a couple of kids messed up the only...
San Diego is good and their quarterback, Philip Rivers, is excellent.  That is not exactly all you need to know about the Bills week three loss at home to the Chargers, but it is probably enough.  Rivers had no difficulty finding open receivers and...
You know its not a good day for the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium when you can only remember one time where a crowd of about 68 thousand people seemed really loud.  The Bills didn't give them much to cheer about in Sunday's deflating 22-10 loss...
A complete contrast of starts from last week to this as the Bills offense stuggled out of the gates, going three and out on their first series and only mustering 34 first quarter yards of offense. Meanwhile San Diego's offense came out guns blazing, as...
With winds at kickoff of 20 miles per hour, the UB Bulls powered through Norfolk State Saturday, 36-7.   By all indications it was a blowout as the Bulls improved to 2-2 (both wins coming against Football Championship Subdivision opponents). Against...

The Buffalo Bills lost not one, but two running backs to injuries that will cost them time on the field. Along with C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson will be forced to miss some game time due to the injury he sustained Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Just...
C.J. Spiller's 2014 regular season has been a tumultuous one. Just one game removed from getting his lowest snap count in the past few years, Spiller unleashed a 53-yard run against the Minnesota Vikings which likely would have vanquished much of the...
Against all odds, somehow, some way the Buffalo Bills came away from their matchup against the Minnesota Vikings as the victors. It wasn’t pretty. In fact, at times — well, most the time — it was damn near ugly. That didn’t thwart...

The Buffalo Bills have had a roller coaster start to the 2014 season. At 3-3, the Bills are still alive in the playoff discussion and have a need to stack up wins against beatable opponents. The Minnesota Vikings, the next opposition for Buffalo, qualify...
Stephon Gilmore has come under fire by some fans frustrated with his play. The expectations of the former first-round selection of the Buffalo Bills are high… and for good reason. Not only is it the fans that feel they should be getting something...
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin started the week off just like the rest of his teammates, with the full expectation that he’d be in the lineup on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. That was, until Thursday afternoon came and went, leaving...
The Buffalo Bills have certainly had their share of wide receiver drama this week. In addition to the trade request of Mike Williams on Monday, now the Bills are dealing with an injury to one of their healthy wideouts. During Thursday’s practice on...
The Buffalo Bills have started to come around on one of the more popular refrains from their fans. To this point, second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio has been kept at offensive tackle and head coach Doug Marrone dismissed the notion of moving him to guard earlier...
The man who has been one of -- if not the most -- important players on the Buffalo Bills roster was nowhere to be found at practice inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center Wednesday. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus did not participate in the team's opening...
It all started with Kyle Williams and his knee.  Once the Buffalo Bills found out Friday that they would have their stud defensive tackle available for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, the team made a decision, and then all hell...
The Buffalo Bills pushed aside a two-game losing streak, went into Detroit and pulled an upset that many didn’t expect them to. With a brand new quarterback at the helm, the Bills beat the Lions on the road 17-14. They moved on to square off against...

In front of one of the loudest crowds one will witness at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Buffalo Bills had a week’s worth of jubilation that surrounded them with their onlooking fans. The Pegula family officially closed on the franchise on Friday, which led...
An emotional pregame ceremony did not translate to the field for Buffalo, at least not offensively, as they went three and out on their first possession. The Patriots would punt on their first possesion as well, but on their second they moved the ball to Bills...
The Pegula era of the Buffalo Bills is officially underway. Fittingly enough, the first foray is against a bitter rival with first place on the line — the New England Patriots. The Bills shocked many last week with a three-point victory over the Detroit...

The Detroit Lions have been one of the most efficient teams in the National Football League in 2014 and their offense boasts a large pool of skill players that can bust open a play. It’s the Buffalo Bills’ task to stop that from happening, but...

The move that many were calling for has happened in Orchard Park. Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone announced Monday afternoon that he has decided to bench second-year quarterback EJ Manuel, and the team will start veteran Kyle Orton on Sunday in Detroit....
They came, they saw and they almost conquered. In a cruel twist of fate at the beginning of the second half, the Buffalo Bills saw their 3-1 start evaporate as quickly as it took the 289-pound J.J. Watt to run the ball 80 yards for a touchdown. With so...
Dan Carpenter provided the first points of the game early in the second quarter, giving Buffalo the 3-0 lead and capping off a 67-yard march. Twenty-two of those yards came on a C.J. Spiller run putting the Bills into Texans territory. Buffalo reached...

The Buffalo Bills will attempt to close out the first quarter of the 2014 NFL season with a winning record, but they’ll likely need to do so without a starting offensive lineman and a deep threat. After both left guard Chris Williams and wide receiver...

With each passing day that Buffalo Bills starting left guard Chris Williams isn't able to practice, the chances for rookie fifth-round pick Cyril Richardson to make his first start in the National Football League increase. For the second straight day,...
The last time the Buffalo Bills started a season with two straight victories was back in 2011. It’s fitting that the Bills would be able to match their first 3-1 start against the man that led them to their last one in that same season. For the first...
To start off the week of practice, the Buffalo Bills had a peculiar addition to the injury report. EJ Manuel was listed, but both head coach Doug Marrone and the young quarterback said there is nothing to worry about. Manuel was designated as a ‘full...
The Buffalo Bills were greeted at the end of their 22-10 loss to San Diego by three new injuries to their active roster. The good news for them, though, is that they’ll likely have one starter that missed the Chargers game back for the team’s next...
Through two weeks of the season the Buffalo Bills had their fans believing that the preseason, which largely tormented them incessantly, was merely a mirage and that the team had more than what met the eye. That still may be true, but after the Bills laid...
