The Sabres have recalled goaltender Nathan Lieuwen from the Rochester. The team has also placed defenseman Josh Gorges on Injured Reserve. Gorges has a knee injury and will be out for weeks.   Lieuwen joins the Sabres for his second career recall since...
The Sabres were lucky not to be down by one or two goals after one period.   Both teams had goals waved off, but San Jose’s should’ve counted. The Sharks walked in 2-on-1 shorthanded when Michal Neuvirth stopped Matt Nieto’s shot....
Tonight’s Sabres game against the Sharks, taking place at 7:30 will be played as scheduled. The Sabres Vice President of Communications Mike Gilbert told Sal and the Bullldog, "We talked to the NHL office this morning and we talked to the Mayor's...
With a State of Emergency in Erie County and driving bans all over Western New York, we’ll have to see if the Sabres game against the Sharks is postponed. Everything is clear downtown, but some parts of Western New York have seen almost 50 inches of...
The NCAA announced Monday that Buffalo would host first and second round games in the 2017 March Madness tournament.  The games will be held March 16 and 18, 2017 at First Niagara Center.  The NCAA also announced that beginning in 2016, the rounds...
College basketball fans tuning into the University at Buffalo men’s basketball team’s matchup against No. 1 Kentucky Sunday knew the onslaught would happen sometime; that the Wildcats – perennially stacked with NBA prospects...
Last season, Nathan Lieuwen was one of the American Hockey League’s top goaltenders. The tall, athletic goalie put his name on the map with a 17-11-4 record and superb .922 save percentage. But in 10 games so far this season, he has not...
Ted Nolan has been talking about Cody Hodgson playing better for most of the season.   Coming into Saturday’s game Hodgson had just one goal and one assist in 18 games and is minus 10. Since we’ve been watching the games I don’t think...
Rick Jeanneret returned to the airwaves on Saturday, calling his first Buffalo Sabres play-by-play since being diagnosed with throat cancer over the summer. Jeanneret, who, eight days ago announced that he is cancer-free, came back to the broadcast booth...
Welcome once again inside the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box, high atop ice level at First Niagara Center. I am being kind by saying that the Buffalo Sabres are going through a rough patch. The blue and gold have lost five straight games, and are without a...
Ted Nolan is changing his lineup once again as Marcus Foligno and Andrej Meszaros go in and Pat Kaleta and Andre Benoit come out.   Kaleta only played one game after returning from a serious face injury. Nolan said, “No it’s not a setback,...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 For the first time this year, we finally have a true "shakeup" in the CFP rankings. Mississippi State still remains at the top, but a one loss Oregon team has jumped undefeated Florida State, and a one...
We all like to be right. So when there is a prospect that is tough to figure out, it can be easy to pick a side and stick with it. But sometimes, it’s simply too hard to tell. Sometimes we have to wait and see. That’s the case with...
The UB men’s and women’s basketball teams split a doubleheader Friday in their respective season openers at Alumni Arena.   Starting with the UB men, who defeated South Dakota State, 69-67, in a game that featured 21 ties or lead changes....
As a testament to the passage of time, it was 15 years, four months and 25 days since "No Goal" or "Toe in the Crease" -- whichever you prefer. And, Dominik Hasek admitted he hasn't yet recovered from the disappointment.   ...
Thomas Vanek faced the Sabres when he was in Montreal, but this is his first game against them for Minnesota.   The Wild brought Vanek in to score goals and it hasn’t worked yet. He has just one goal in 14 games and Vanek said, “I think...
I think we’ve seen enough of Nic Deslauriers to know he’ll do anything for his team and anything for a teammate.   At the end of the game in St. Louis, Deslauriers took exception to Ian Cole and Alexander Steen going after Tyler Ennis. ...
I think overall, Bills fans would be enjoying this 2014 season more if more of them didn't think the team was blowing it. These years can run together, and sound the same. Modest goals are set but not met, and fans chop away to explain how the Bills...
It was a strong start to the game as Buffalo put pressure on Blues goalie Brian Elliot and outshot the Blues in the first period 15-10. The Sabres doing so even while killing off two penalties. The biggest chance of the first period came as Zemgus Girgensons...
Despite losing last time out to Nashville, the Sabres are playing a red hot Blues team. The loss to the Preds broke a seven game winning streak.   St. Louis got off to a tough start winning just two of their first six.   Former Sabre Jordan Leopold...
When Mark Pysyk was sent to Rochester to begin the season, it appeared it would just be a conditioning stint. But the struggles of the Amerks’ defense have led to an extended stay without an end in the immediate future. In fairness to the...
This one may leave a mark.  Midway through the 4th Quarter I found myself thinking of a conversation I had with Bills Play By Play man John Murphy mid week.  We were talking about the Chiefs and he said they kind of reminded him of the New Jersey...
You'd think we'd be able to handle games like this since we've had so much experience with them but they get more sickening every time the Bills find a creative way to lose a crucial contest.  For the second straight season the Bills looked...
The Bills blew a golden opportunity at home against Kansas City and because they’re so bad in the AFC at 2-4, the playoffs seem very far away.   Buffalo did many good things, but they pretty much handed the game to the Chiefs. If I told you that...
Bust. Bust. Bust. Everyone panic! The rebuild will never work!  Just kidding. If the American Hockey League did us all a solid and started keeping shot attempts instead of just shots on goal, it would be easier to explain how the Rochester...
Many fans wanted to know why Nikita Zadorov was here and not playing.   The first issue is if he gets sent down to junior, he and his KHL team must approve the move.   The second thing was Zadorov showed up in the beginning of summer overweight...
Welcome yet again inside of the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box, high atop ice level at First Niagara Center, where the Buffalo Sabres are back on the ice less than 24 hours after their demoralizing 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Tonight Sidney Crosby and...
In a season where the bottom keeps dropping out on the Buffalo Sabres, last night’s loss to the Edmonton Oilers provided what could be considered the new low point. Tonight it does not get easier with the Pittsburgh Penguins in town to take on the blue...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter: @SalSports   There haven’t been many November games as big as this one for the Bills over the past 14 years.  Both teams 5-3, the winner takes a huge step towards a playoff spot while the loser falls,...
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Joel Armia connected with Mikhail Grigorenko for a pretty goal in the first period of Friday night’s game. Unfortunately for the Rochester Americans, it was one of very few highlights in a 3-1 loss to...
Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray told WGR on Friday that an unnamed Sabre is "probably going to be suspended for a game." He later clarified his statement to John Vogl of the The Buffalo News, saying it's a Sabres "property."...
There’s no question we’ve seen improvement from the Sabres the past six games, but by no means are they there yet.   Buffalo has taken six of 12 points in its last six games and probably had its best 40 minutes of play Wednesday against...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 For the 800th time this year, this is the biggest weekend of the season. For real though, I mean it this time. Six Top 25 matchups, a Top 10 Big 12 showdown, the game of the year in the Big 10, and another edition of...
Terry and Kim Pegulas sat down for multiple interviews on Wednesday, one of which was with John Warrow of the Associated Press. In that interview, Terry revealed that the new Bills' owners are planning on a new stadium. "Well, there's going...
I’ve been trying to keep a good eye on Johan Larsson as he plays his second game since being called up from Rochester and I have to admit, between this season and last I just don’t see what one of my colleagues sees in him. He thinks Larsson is...
Welcome into the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box, hight atop ice level at First Niagara Center. The Buffalo Sabres have had two days to "bask" in their shootout win on Sunday evening, and now welcome the Montreal Canadiens to town for an Atlantic...
The Sabres come into tonight’s game with a 2-2-1 record in their last five games while the Canadiens haven’t won in three games losing lately at home to Calgary 6-2 and Chicago 5-0.   Carey Price played both those games so with back-to-back...
With a loss tonight against the Ohio Bobcats, the University at Buffalo Bulls football season is essentially over.   Sure, there would still be plenty to play for with many seniors wrapping up their athletic careers and finishing the MAC...
The Bills have a winning record at the midpoint of the season. For many teams, a non-story. For Buffalo, a big deal. They were 5-3 in 2008 and 2011, but both of those teams had entered into losing streaks after eight games. This team has a modest air of...
Matt Hackett has spent the past week or so practicing with his teammates.   Hackett had knee surgery over the summer after being crashed into last March. He’s not ready to play, but thankful to be progressing, “I’m feeling a lot better,...
The Sabres got back to work on Tuesday after a day off and Ted Nolan tweaked the lines. Nolan did say he’ll use the same lineup on Wednesday unless Marcus Foligno is good enough to go. Nolan said, “We’ll see how he feels in the morning and...
There are a number of interesting story lines that have emerged through the first half of the Buffalo Bills 2014 season but there's no question which story is at the top of the list.  The change at quarterback. Initially the story was all about...
The Sabres have signed forward Justin Bailey to a three-year, entry-level contract.   Bailey (6’3″, 190 lbs) is playing in his third season with the Kitchener Rangers and currently leads the team in scoring with 18 points (9+9) through 13...
Before I start talking about this evening’s game, I want to speak about Ted Nolan and what he said a few hours before the game.   After Saturday’s loss in Pittsburgh his team was questioned again for a poor effort. It cost Mike Weber and...
Welcome yet again inside the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box, high atop ice level at First Niagara Center. Boy, what a performance last night in Pittsburgh by the blue and gold. They were shut out for the fifth time already this season, this time 5-0 by the...
 It was very predictable what we’d see in the first period in Pittsburgh.   The Pens had the puck in the Buffalo end pretty much for the whole period except for the one Sabres power play. Even then, Andre Benoit made a horrible decision from...
Hello once again, this time high atop ice level in the Steel City, Pittsburgh, PA at CONSOL Energy Center. Tonight the Buffalo Sabres hit the ice against one of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League, the Pittsburgh Penguins. The home team has...
Christian Ehrhoff will play his first game against the Sabres since he told Tim Murray he didn’t want to be here anymore and was bought out.   It was very apparent in Ehrhoff’s play in many games last year that he had packed it in and didn’t...
After the Sabres went out for practice, Tim Murray met with Sam Reinhart to tell him he’s going back to junior.     It seemed like it was a pretty obvious decision. One of the most obvious things in watching Reinhart play was how overmatched...
Tonight instead of writing about the game, I’m going to update you on why Nikita Zadorov is still here.   Nikita Zadorov is still with the Sabres and has played one of the first 11 games. Apparently, if the Sabres want to send him to the OHL and...
Pete Carges @pcarges550 So the first official College Football Playoff rankings were released Tuesday, and quite honestly, I feel absolutely indifferent about them. Yes, I was a little surprised to three SEC West teams in the top four, but...
Ted Nolan said he was going to sit one of his defensemen, but he isn’t going to let him know until warmup. The rest of the lineup will remain the same with Jhonas Enroth to face Niklas Svedberg in goal.   Enroth fell out of favor when Michal Neuvirth...
Whether it was the oversaturation of hockey games at First Niagara Center lately or frustration from the Sabres’ fan base over their brutal start to the season, the arena was mostly empty for the Rochester Americans’ annual game in downtown Buffao....
Ted Nolan said 10 goals in 10 games with only two wins is his fault and maybe he’s been soft. You have to go back 68 years to have that bad of a goal scoring start and Nolan said, “I always give our team a 10 game grace period, you give them a...
Big 4 men’s hoops is coming to First Niagara Center for a doubleheader classic for the first time in 16 years -- and they’ll be wearing jerseys that celebrate Buffalo’s basketball history.   Intended to showcase the four...
It happens time and time again, when an east coast team comes back from a west coast trip, the first game isn’t good and in the first period, the Sabres we’re sluggish and careless.   One of the reasons many analytics don’t work is...
The Sabres and Maple Leafs dropped the puck from the AIr Canada Centre tonight for the first of four meetings between the two division rivals. Toronto putting the heat on for almost the entire period as Nazem Kadri had a strong chance early that Michael Neuvirth...
Michal Neuvirth gets his third start in four games as the Sabres visit the Leafs. Buffalo won its last time out in San Jose 2-1 with Neuvirth making 29 saves. That brings his save percentage this season up to .916. He said that really helped him, “It...
Tonight marks the 8th game of Sam Reinhart’s NHL career which means he can play one more before the team needs to make a decision. If Reinhart plays in his 10th game, he must remain with the Sabres for the rest of the season.   The 18 year old...
After training camp ended, I had gotten the impression that Jhonas Enroth had won the starting goalie competition. Enroth played in five of the first six games and didn’t play poorly, but Michal Neuvirth has started two of the last three games and he’ll...

Sure there were some exasperating moments but I feel much better after the Bills win over the New York Jets than I did after the last second victory over Minnesota one week earlier.   There are a number of reasons why you should feel better if you...
That really wasn't that hard. I know, I know, it took awhile for the Bills to finally put the Jets away.  If you were following along on Twitter during the game you may have had the sense the Bills were in danger of blowing this game somehow. ...
The University at Buffalo Bulls football team put itself in a tough position with four games remaining this season: they must win out to be bowl eligible after a 20-14 loss to Central Michigan at UB Stadium Saturday.   The postgame scene...
For over two periods on Saturday, this was a difficult game to write about because Buffalo wasn't doing anything offensively that it practiced.   On Friday, Ted Nolan spent over 45 minutes working on all sorts of ways the generate shots, chances...
Two days after Connor McDavid put on a 4-point show for Buffalo hockey fans at First Niagara Center, two Buffalo Sabres prospects sent a message: Don’t forget about us. First round draft picks Mikhail Grigorenko and Joel Armia each had...
I know with the Sabres record that you’d never know it, but it’s been a long time since the Sabres had a resource like Bryan Trottier on their coaching staff.   Trottier has seven Stanley Cups as a player and coach with the Islanders,...
University at Buffalo Bulls football interim head coach Alex Wood says there will be no rust when he’s counted on to manage all three phases of UB’s matchup with Central Michigan Saturday.   It’s the first time the...
By Sal Capaccio Twitter: @SalSports   At 4-3 and the bye coming up next week, the Bills are in a position to really make things interesting in the second half of the season.  But to get half-way to 10 wins at the midway point, they’ll...
The Sabres knack for taking penalties cost them in this game.   It took Tyler Myers 29 seconds to take a hooking penalty and just seven seconds later, Jeff Carter fired one past a screened Jhonas Enroth.   In the second period, Myers took a cross...
It was an ugly start for the Sabres as Tyler Myers took an early penalty and the Kings immediately capitalized. Jeff Carter threw a shot at the net from the blue line with the body of Tanner Pearson in front of Jhonas Enroth to make it 1-0 just 36 seconds...
Pete Carges @pcarges550   Coming at you a day early this week, since there are so many dynamite games on tap. Well, ok not really, maybe the eye of the hurricane is the most appropriate way to describe this weekend's college football...
Ted Nolan will coach against his son Jordan for the first time in the NHL.   Jordan has played in five of the Kings six games, usually from the Kings fourth line. Ted Nolan is of course very excited and emotional about tonight, “I’ve been...
Ted Nolan is finally giving Nikita Zadorov his first game. I’m hearing both Josh Gorges and Tyler Myers are banged up so this gives Nolan a buffer should one have to back off. Nolan said, “We’ll give Nikita a shot, he’s been working...
When Connor McDavid isn’t wearing skates, pads, helmet and gloves, he looks like a kid that might pass for a Buffalo suburb high school quarterback. Except he lacks the charisma and cockiness of a quarterback. He stuffs his hands in his pockets, looks...
Ted Nolan had commented on Tuesday how well his team practiced in Anaheim and it definitely carried over in the game, despite the 4-1 loss.   Buffalo came out fast, skated and took the play to the Ducks only to be stopped by Frederik Andersen. Buffalo...
The Sabres are back in Anaheim tonight fresh off the 5-1 pasting they took from them October 13th in Buffalo.   The Ducks dominated in every way and are off to a 5-1 start.   Anaheim isn’t missing Jonas Hiller as Frederik Andersen is 5-...
Another injury has sidelined the hard luck Pat Kaleta and although he’s not ready for games yet, he is practicing with the team. Kaleta had almost every bone broken in one side of his face, but his attitude never changes, “It’s amazing to...
It was a surreal moment. Couldn't believe it. November 13, 2013, First Niagara Center, there he was, out of nowhere or to be precise Latvia, the man some Sabres fans never stopped thinking about, the man most of them thought got a raw deal, back to coach...
A large crowd is expected at First Niagara Center on Wednesday night to see the next superstar NHL player, Connor McDavid. The Erie Otters – McDavid’s team - will face off with the Niagara Ice Dogs, in a game that could be best described...
Sam Reinhart got another new experience in the NHL on Saturday, he was a healthy scratch.   You could see the 18 year old's play was slipping as he went along in his first five games so Nolan put him upstairs.   Being scratched is more than...
As the Sabres took the ice in Anaheim for practice it was very obvious they were faster and more focused. Things were crisp and players lingered for about 25 minutes after practice ended working on things. Ted Nolan said it’s something he stressed, “We...

We’ve all seen this game before. Over the past 15 years, the Buffalo Bills have provided one game every year that signifies the slow crawl toward the end of the year as another wasted season. After 10 games in the 2014 season, we are finally at that...
When we last left the Buffalo Bills, they suffered a defeat in a contest that likely should have brought them a victory. Poor effort in the red zone allowed the Chiefs to hang in with the Bills, and a pair of late turnovers finally gave Kansas City what they...
