Source | 11 hrs ago.

The Buffalo Sabres announced on Saturday morning that the organization has suspended forward Patrik Berglund indefinitely for failure to report to the team. The Sabres said they will have no further comment on the suspension at this time. This announcement comes after the 30-year-old forward missed the previous two games due what coach Phil Housley had called an illness. The Sabres are set to play the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals on Saturday evening and are looking to win their third game in a row.

Sabres will try to cool off Capitals' red-hot Ovechkin

The Buffalo Sabres will try and do what the Detroit Red Wings and Carolina Hurricanes did not do this week when they play the Washington Capitals Saturday night at Capital One Arena. Stop Alex Ovechkin. Ovechkin tied his career-long point streak at 13 games Friday night with his second straight hat trick as Washington rallied for a 6-5 shootout win at the Carolina Hurricanes.

Jeff Skinner got his 22nd goal of the season, Casey Mittelstadt and Evan Rodrigues also scored and the Sabres beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Thursday night for their second consecutive victory. It was the first time since Nov. 21 that the Sabres won in regulation. Prior to that, Buffalo won twice in overtime and once in a shootout while matching a franchise record with 10 straight victories.

Skinner seals Sabres comeback in 4-3 OT win over Kings

Rather than lament another sloppy performance after being booed off the ice at the end of the second period, Jack Eichel and the Buffalo Sabres decided to do something about it. Eichel scored and had a hand in setting up Jeff Skinner's power-play goal 1:49 into overtime, and the Sabres overcame a two-goal deficit in the third to beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 on Tuesday night. ''Coming in here after 40 minutes and you're down two goals, and you just had a couple of days off and you're at home, there's got to be some type of emotional response from the room,'' said Eichel, noting the Sabres were also smarting from a 6-2 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

PHT Power Rankings: Blackhawks hit bottom

If you turn on any random Chicago Blackhawks game on any random night against any random opponent it is a good bet they are already going to be losing by two or three goals 10 minutes into the first period. Sometimes they are able to push back a little and tie the game only to lose in backbreaking fashion, just as they have done in their most recent losses to the Vegas Golden Knights and Montreal Canadiens. Thanks to the seven-game losing streak they are carrying into the week the Blackhawks officially have the worst record (based on points percentage) in the entire league and are just 3-11-2 since firing Joel Quenneville.

Matthews scores 2 for Maple Leafs in 4-3 OT win over Sabres

Having already missed 14 games with a shoulder injury, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews wasn't going to let a little fatigue prevent him from jumping into the play for one last rush. Rather than go to the bench with Kasperi Kapanen flying up the left wing, Matthews drove down the middle, received his teammate's pass and snapped a shot over Buffalo Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark's left shoulder to seal Toronto's 4-3 win with three seconds on the clock in overtime Tuesday night. ''Lucky to get it off with a little bit of time remaining,'' said Matthews, who scored twice and added an assist to give him five goals and seven points in three games since returning to the lineup.

Worst in NHL last season, Sabres are surging after 9-0 run

The Buffalo Sabres are on such a roll, captain Jack Eichel was having difficulty recalling the last time they lost. ''Um, was it Calgary?'' Eichel said Monday, before being reminded the 2-1 overtime defeat to the Flames was three losses ago. ''Yeah, Rangers, in New York,'' he said, finally recalling a 3-1 loss on Nov. 4 that dropped Buffalo's record to 7-6-2.

It might be time for the Sabres to set their sights much higher than merely breaking their postseason drought. Yes, it’s been a very, very long time since you could say that outside of one of EA’s NHL video games. Tonight’s win improved the Sabres to an NHL-best 16-6-2 (34 pts.) on the season.

Jeff Skinner's second effort extended the NHL's longest win streak. Skinner scored 3:06 into overtime after getting the tying goal late in regulation, and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Friday for their eighth straight win. It's the longest streak for Buffalo since winning 10 games in a row to start the 2006-07 season.

The Flyers' trip to Buffalo would have gone more smoothly had they sailed over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The Sabres exploded for four first-period goals to hand the Flyers a 4-2 loss Wednesday at KeyBank Center. Which Flyer dropped the gloves for the first time this season and how did Alex Lyon collapse in his first game of the season?

What's driving the Buffalo Sabres' unexpected results?

With the Penguins up 4-1 on the Sabres on home ice Monday, order, it seemed, was in the beginning stages of being restored in the NHL’s Eastern Conference. Instead Buffalo answered with three to tie in regulation before Jack Eichel won it for the Sabres in overtime, widening the rather head-scratching gap between two franchises that have operated at opposite ends of the conference for the last decade or so. More losses like these will bring on more and more skepticism about the Penguins and if their inevitable decline has indeed arrived.

Penguins get all-too-rare win in Crosby’s return

November has been a ruthlessly brutal month for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but for one night, all felt mostly well. Of course, the most important element was that the Penguins got a win. Sidney Crosby suiting back up was almost guaranteed to be a comfort for Pittsburgh, like Thanksgiving’s looming belly full of tryptophan.

A year after finishing with the worst record in the NHL, the Buffalo Sabres are making a habit of rallying in their second year under coach Phil Housley. Jason Pominville scored with 1:30 remaining and Buffalo extended its winning streak to five games with a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

Remember when the Buffalo Sabres were bad? You don’t have to go that far back in the annals of hockey history to find some woefully bad Sabres teams. Case and point: Buffalo has now cobbled together five straight wins, including triumphs over the Tampa Bay Lightning — tops in the Atlantic Division — and the Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild, teams sitting second and third in the Central Division, respectively.

With injuries to Jonathan Quick and Jack Campbell, the Kings have had to resort to their third-and fourth-string goalies Cal Petersen and Peter Budaj. On Friday night in Chicago it was Petersen getting the start and he was absolutely fantastic in a 2-1 shootout win over the Blackhawks stopping 34 shots through regulation and overtime to pick up his first NHL win.

Wild host surprising Sabres

When the schedule came out during the summer, Minnesota Wild fans might have looked at Saturday's visit from the Buffalo Sabres as a pretty sure two points. It's because Buffalo, after years of playing mostly terrible hockey, appears to have finally become a good team again. Phil Housley's second year behind the bench is going much better than the first, as the Sabres (11-6-2) have made a big statement this week.

Sheary beat Laurent Brossoit with a shot over the goalie's glove.

Soaring Jets host Sabres

It wasn't a Rebrandt by any means -- it can't be when you have two shots on goal in the first period, one of which came from your own zone and was practically moving backwards when it was gently brushed aside by the goalie -- but the Jets got stronger as the game wore on and did a good job of neutralizing sniper Alex Ovechkin and keeping virtually all of his teammates' rushes to the outside of the rink. Defenseman Josh Morrissey was his usual tower of strength in shutting down the high-octane Capitals attack but his body slam of forward T.J. Oshie late in the third period left his participation in Friday's game against the Buffalo Sabres in doubt. The two got tangled up battling for the puck and it appeared the Jets rearguard could just as easily have ended up on the bottom.
