Sabres' All-Star forward Zemgus Girgensons inspires Latvian rap song

Buffalo Sabres' 20-year-old Latvian center Zemgus Girgensons was somewhat stunned that he became the leading vote-getter for the NHL All-Star game.

VIDEO: Matt Bartkowski Knocks Brian Gionta Out Of Game

Matt Bartkowski is 6’1″, Brian Gionta is 5’7″. A lot of hits on Gionta are going to be high due to the simple fact that his head lines up with the shoulders of most NHL players (or rib cage if you are Chara). So if the outrage and resulting fallout over this hit Bartkowski laid on Gionta is that it was a high hit, then I’m not buying. However if the league doles out...

Which Former Sabres Captain Was The Last Bruin To Wear No. 81?

One of those players played for the Bruins at one point in his career and is the last Bruins player to wear...

How NBCSN can replace every Buffalo Sabres game left on their schedule

The Buffalo Sabres are an awful hockey team. They stand at 3-12-2 just 18 games into the 2013-14 NHL regular season. That’s worst in the league, currently setting them up with the best chance at picking first overall in a loaded 2015 NHL Draft. There’s certainly hope for the future, but none of it should be allocated to this season. Why is that a problem? Because NBCSN, in their...
