    Sabres’ Steve Ott Licks Jeff Halpern’s Face (Video)

    Thanks to Buffalo Sabres center Steve Ott, you may soon be hearing something at NHL arenas that you never thought you’d hear… “Two minutes for licking.” Yes, licking. Nowhere in the NHL rulebook does it say you’re not allowed to lick another player, but that’s only because nobody ever tried…until last night. The Montreal Canadiens […]

  • This Day In Sports History (March 22nd) – Clint Malarchuk

    This Day In Sports History (March 22nd) – Clint Malarchuk

    It was on this day in 1989 that Buffalo Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk suffered a near fatal throat injury.  Malarchuk had his interior carotid artery severed when teammate Uwe Krupp and St. Louis Blues forward Steve Tuttle crashed into him at a high speed. Malarchuk came dangerously close to losing his life that night, but […]

    Fat Florida Panthers Fan Dancing Shirtless is Terrifying (Video)

    The Florida Panthers are perennially in the bottom third of the league when it comes to attendance rates. Last year, for example, they averaged just 16,628 fans per game, which means they only filled 86.4% of the seats. Only seven teams did worse. However, that doesn’t mean the Panthers don’t have die hard fans. Apparently […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/31/2013 — Thomas Vanek

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/31/2013 — Thomas Vanek

    Thomas Vanek got off to a hot start last season, recording 14 points in his first nine game of the season, before eventually cooling down considerably and finishing with 61 points in 78 games.  As for this season, describing Vanek’s start as “hot” would be an understatement.  “Scorching” seems to be a much more appropriate […]

    Canadian National Anthem Botched At Sabres Game (Video)

    The Canadian national anthem is rarely performed at hockey games that do not involve Canadian teams, and perhaps they should keep it that way following this debacle by the anthem singer during last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Carolina Hurricanes at the First Niagara Center. Her error (It’s supposed to be “From […]

    Last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Anaheim Ducks provided a total of four fights, and they all occurred within the final five minutes of the game.  However, the first altercation between Corey Tropp of the Sabres and Matt Beleskey of the Ducks was the only one that we can really consider to […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kassian vs. Sestito — 2/16/12

    When it comes to fighting in hockey, it is difficult to say whether quantity of punches is greater than quality of punches.  In some cases,it is.  During last night’s bout between Zack Kassian of the Buffalo Sabres and Tom Sestito of the Philadelphia Flyers, it wasn’t, as quality easily prevailed over quantity. Getting the advantage […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/16/12 — Claude Giroux

    Through his first 52 games played this season, Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux had recorded three four-point games, but he just can’t seem to reach that elusive fifth point in a single game.  That changed during game 53 of the season for Giroux, as he finally had himself a five-point game during last night’s contest […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Kaleta — 2/8/12

    The Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres engaged in a physical affair last night that yielded a total of 90 penalty minutes and three fights.  The best bout of the evening took place just over 12 minutes into the first period, as the Patrick Kaleta was looking to get some additional retribution on the Bruins’ […]

  • Ryan Miller’s Stick Makes “Save Of The Year” (Video)

    Ryan Miller’s Stick Makes “Save Of The Year” (Video)

    Last week we suggested that Mike Smith’s save on a Marian Gaborik penalty shot may turn out to be the best save from the 2011-12 NHL season… Not so fast. During last night’s game against the Winnipeg Jets, Ryan Miller’s desperate attempt to stop a puck that got by him was successful, as he reached […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kassian vs. Martin — 11/29/11

    Things got testy between the New York Islanders and the Buffalo Sabres last night, as a questionable hit by Nino Niederreiter on Nathan Gerbe along the benches caused play to stop as players from both teams gathered to discuss matters. And while Niederreiter, Gerbe and several others engaged in a meaningless shoving match, Matt Martin […]

    Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta Headbutts Flyers’ Jakub Voracek (Video)

    Hockey players wear helmets for protection, but Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres has a knack for using his as a weapon. He has done it in the past, headbutting members of the opposition on two separate occasions last season.  He was at it once again last night, as he drove his head into the […]
