The Buffalo Sabres had an ugly collapse in the second period of Friday's game against Carolina.
Buffalo went into the second period with a 1-0 lead, but they watched as the Hurricanes scored three goals in the first 6:51 of the frame. The Sabres never recovered. "They get a goal and you just see us drop. We got affected by it," said center Ryan O'Reilly. "They come right back down and they score again. From there it was trying to climb back. We couldn't do it. We didn't have the collective everyone-together kind of thing. When things aren't going the right way, we tend to get a little selfish and you can see it breaks us down."

Ryan O'Reilly registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

He finished with a plus-3 rating and led all Sabres forwards with 22:38 of ice time. O'Reilly has recorded multi-point efforts in each of his last three appearances. He has 24 points in 30 matches this season.
Jan 11 - 10:27 AM

Ryan O'Reilly is now the proud owner of consecutive two-point games.

O'Reilly has posted a goal and four points in that span. He has nine goals and 24 points in 30 games this season, so make sure you start him every night just as the Sabres did during their 4-3 win over the Jets on Saturday.

Ryan O'Reilly earned two assists in his return from an emergency appendectomy on Thursday night.

He missed just four games following the procedure. O'Reilly centered the third line between Zemgus Girgensons and Brian Gionta, but his assists came on power-play goals by Kyle Okposo and Jack Eichel.
Jan 6 - 9:14 AM

Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) will return to the Sabres' lineup on Thursday.

In the end, O'Reilly only missed four games after undergoing surgery, which is very impressive. That being said, the plan is to limit his minutes and faceoff duties Thursday night, so keep that in mind should you decide to use him.
Jan 5 - 3:12 PM

Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) may be available to return to action as early as Thursday night.

He was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice just 10 days after having an emergency appendectomy. "It felt great to be back with the guys," O'Reilly said. "It feels like it has been months since I've been around. It's nice to get out there. I feel 100 percent. It's just a matter of making sure everybody is on board and feeling safe." He hopes to play against Chicago after missing the last four games.
Jan 5 - 7:44 AM

Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) is on the injured reserve list.

This is just an FYI because the move is presumably retroactive to Dec. 23. What that means is O'Reilly can be activated whenever he's healthy. He took part in Wednesday's practice, so he might not be sidelined for much longer.
Jan 4 - 5:28 PM

Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) took part in Wednesday's practice.

O'Reilly underwent surgery on Christmas Day, so the fact that he's already practicing with the Sabres is impressive. Consider him day-to-day at this point.
Jan 4 - 5:07 PM

Ryan O'Reilly (appendectomy) could be sidelined for two-to-three weeks.

"The initial part is 10-14 days of healing time on the procedure and the lack thereof of an appendix," coach Dan Bylsma said. "It's roughly that period of time of rest and recovery and then getting back on the ice." O'Reilly was absent for six games earlier this season because of an oblique problem. In 27 appearances, he has seven goals and 18 points.

Ryan O'Reilly's appendectomy has just been confirmed by the team.

However, no timetable was provided for his return. It probably won't be a long-term absence for O'Reilly, but he won't be available to play Tuesday night at Detroit.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 11:44:00 AM

Ryan O'Reilly had an appendectomy on Christmas Day and will be out for an indefinite period, according to the Buffalo News.

He has generated seven goals and 18 points in 27 games this season. The Sabres have not confirmed his status or timetable yet, but O'Reilly may only miss a week or two following the procedure.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 11:38:00 AM

Ryan O'Reilly wanted to respond Tuesday night after he was on for the first two goals by the Kings.

"I was just getting frustrated," he said. "The first goal was clearly my fault, then being out there again ... I've got to create offense and not get scored on. I was frustrated and tried to regroup and provide some offense." He got the Sabres on the board with his seventh goal of the season on a great solo effort. It eventually led to an outpouring of offense in a 6-3 Buffalo victory.

Ryan O'Reilly contributed two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Edmonton.

He had the primary helpers on Evander Kane's game-tying goal and Rasmus Ristolainen's game winner. O'Reilly has produced 15 points in 20 matches this campaign, including two goals and four assists in the last five outings.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 09:33:00 AM

Ryan O'Reilly recorded two goals and one assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Ottawa.

He picked up one goal and one assist on Buffalo's power play, which looked revitalized with Jack Eichel back in the lineup. The Sabres went 3-for-5 on the man advantage Tuesday night. O'Reilly had one assist in his previous six outings. Getting Eichel back gives the Sabres much more depth and it should help free up more opportunities for O'Reilly because teams can't solely focus on shutting him down anymore.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 09:47:00 AM

The Buffalo Sabres have scored two goals or less in 12 of 13 games this month.

Yikes! That's an embarrassing stat. "It’s tough to sit there and say, ‘As a team we have to be better,’ when it’s myself and scoring goals and giving ourselves life early," forward Ryan O’Reilly said. "We can’t wait until the third to score a goal. We’ve got to produce at some point." O'Reilly is one of the players who needs to contribute more. He has just one goal in his last 12 contests. This team definitely misses Jack Eichel.
