Player News - Sabres

Date: Team: Pos:

Jhonas Enroth put forth a valiant 34 save effort on Thursday night, but it was not enough for the Sabres as they fell 3-2 to the Bruins in overtime.

Enroth played very well and earned the Sabres a point against a division rival, but his offense provided little support in managing just 15 shots in the game. Enroth falls to 1-5-1 this year with a .915 save percentage and 3.11 goals against average.

Drew Stafford and the Sabres put forth a great effort against the Bruins Thursday night, but Buffalo fell 3-2 in overtime despite.

Stafford had a goal and an assist in the loss, bringing him to six points on the season. His goal came on the power play and Stafford finished a -2 in the game.

Jhonas Enroth will start Thursday night's game versus Boston.

He watched the last two games from the bench, as Michal Neuvirth got two straight starts. Neither goaltender is worth targeting in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo hasn't made a decision yet on where Sam Reinhart will play out the remainder of the season.

"Not yet," coach Ted Nolan said. "We'll sit down with [GM Tim Murray] in a little bit, and we'll decide then." Reinhart suited up in his eighth game with Sabres on Tuesday night. A return to the junior ranks appears to be in the cards for him. He's picked up one assist and three shots, while averaging just 10:41 of ice time per match.

The Buffalo Sabres posted a franchise low 10 shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to Toronto.

The players were embarrassed by their performances and coach Ted Nolan was direct in his assessment. "We had nothing," he said. "Toronto had everything going. They were skating well. They deserved everything they got. We deserved exactly what we got. Sometimes if your feet ain't moving at least your brain should be thinking a little bit. Tonight we had neither."

Sabres forward Matt Moulson was held off the scoresheet once again Tuesday as the Sabres were upended by Toronto by a score of 4-0.

The sniper has yet to score a goal all season and he was actually prevented from even recording a shot on goal in this disastrous defeat. No Sabres player registered more than one shot on goal in the loss.
Oct 29 - 2:51 AM

Michal Neuvirth struggled to keep his head above water Tuesday as the turned aside 33 of 37 shots in a 4-0 thrashing against the Maple Leafs.

Neuvirth was the primary reason the score of this game wasn't more significantly lopsided since the Sabres offered him nothing in the way of support. His record falls to 1-3-0 with the loss and he continues to share time in goal with Jhonas Enroth.

Michal Neuvirth will be between the pipes for Buffalo for Tuesday night's game in Toronto.

The move isn't surprising after Neuvirth made 29 stops in a 2-1 win over San Jose on Saturday.
Oct 28 - 7:50 AM

Sam Reinhart earned his first NHL point in Saturday's win over San Jose.

He got the secondary assist on Nicolas Deslauriers' game winner. Reinhart has averaged just 10:24 of ice time in seven appearances with the Sabres. He has one assist and two shots during that time.
Oct 27 - 10:23 AM

Marcus Foligno started Saturday's win over San Jose as Buffalo's second-line center.

He played between Drew Stafford and Cody Hodgson, who switched to left wing. "It's different," Foligno said. "When you're on the wing, you're mostly on the wall, protecting your side of the ice. When you're center, you're kind of all over. You're protecting both sides, and you're up and down." Foligno logged a team-low 8:29 of ice time, so the experiment may not last.
Oct 27 - 10:19 AM

While the San Jose Sharks' effort was uneven on Saturday, Michal Neuvirth deserves a lot of credit for the Buffalo Sabres' shocking 2-1 win.

Neuvirth stopped 29 out of 30 shots, including 14 out of 15 in the third period. The 26-year-old has faced 107 shots in three games so far, acquitting himself pretty well. This is his first win for Buffalo in 2014-15, and if he keeps this up, he might take quite a few starts from Jhonas Enroth.
Oct 25 - 6:57 PM

Cody Hodgson scored for the Sabres in a stunning 2-1 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Hodgson, 24, is still having a disappointing season so far (just two points and a -6 rating with a scant 10 SOG in nine games), but perhaps this will light a fire under him? He only received 10:48 time on ice on Saturday, so this may just be wakeup call material for the 10th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft.
Oct 25 - 6:54 PM

Updating an earlier item, it looks as if Michal Neuvirth will get the start against San Jose Saturday afternoon.

It was thought that Jhomas Enroth would get the call but that is obviously no longer the case. The game starts at 4:00 pm ET, so make sure you adjust your goaltending rotation accordingly.
Oct 25 - 3:05 PM

Tyler Ennis missed Friday's practice.

It was just a maintenance day off for Ennis. He should be good to go Saturday afternoon against San Jose.
Oct 25 - 9:44 AM

In eight games this season three of the Sabres' top-line forwards have combined for a total of nine shots on goal.

You read that right. Cody Hodgson, Drew Stafford and Matt Moulson have combined to average slightly more than just one shot on goal per game. That despite ample ice time in both five-on-five and power-play situations for all three. That should tell just how awful the Sabres are playing collectively and how you need to bench any Buffalo player you had the misfortune of selecting on draft day.
