Loss to Stars leaves Hitchcock looking to get Blues' attention

ST. LOUIS -- Dallas coach Lindy Ruff was talking with a small group of reporters in a hallway outside the locker room following the Stars' Saturday morning skate when Ken Hitchcock walked by. Huff noticed the St. Louis Blues' coach, who was his roommate at the Olympics when the pair were assistants for gold medalist Team Canada, and said maybe Hitch should answer a question...

Stars Get Ruff 600th Win in Edging Sabres

DALLAS -- In a way, it was almost poetic that Lindy Ruff got his 600th career win as an NHL head coach against his former team, the Buffalo Sabres. The Dallas Stars and Sabres went toe-to-toe on Monday night at American Airlines Center, but in the end a power-play goal by Dallas rookie winger Alex Chiasson, one that went in off his shin guard, was the difference in a 3-2 win. Ruff...

Stars' Ruff mum on possibly reaching 600 wins vs. Sabres

DALLAS -- Almost true to form, the calm, cool and collected Lindy Ruff was downplaying the possibility that if the Dallas Stars beat the Buffalo Sabres, the same club he coached for most of his NHL career, on Monday night at American Airlines Center, that Ruff would become the 12th coach in league history to reach 600 wins. But don't try to tell him how significant such a milestone...

After 16 years behind the Sabres' bench, Lindy Ruff will be back in Buffalo but coaching against them for the first time.

Patrick Happy to be reunited with Stars coach Ruff

James Patrick admits the 2013 season, one where he began the campaign working alongside Lindy Ruff in Buffalo and ended it working with Ron Rolston, who was brought in to coach the Sabres after Ruff had been fired after some 16 seasons behind the bench, was a bit weird. However, Patrick, 50, who was recently hired by the Dallas Stars to again serve as an assistant for Ruff, who...

Lindy Ruff will be back to work soon

Lindy Ruff might not be unemployed for long. Freshly fired after 15 years behind the Buffalo Sabres' bench (replaced by Ron Rolston of the AHL Rochester Americans), Ruff could be entrenched as head coach of another squad shortly -- if he's interested in taking on a new challenge right away. The general consensus amongst NHL coaches and general managers seems to be that the...

Do the Buffalo Sabres need to fire Lindy Ruff?

I’ve long been a defender of Lindy Ruff. For years, he coached teams that ranked in the bottom of the league in payroll in a cap-free world. As the longest tenured head coach in the NHL, he has lead some squads that overachieved and for a while it was easy to blame outside forces for the team’s recent shortcomings.  After all, when the fields evened after the full-season lockout...
