Mikhail Grigorenko has been returned to the minors.

He was called up as insurance just in case Tyler Ennis was unable to play Tuesday. Ennis was able to return from a groin injury, so Grigorenko sat as a healthy scratch. Grigorenko is just getting over an injury of his own, so he'll get to work that out in the AHL.
Mar 4 - 10:30 AM

Tim Schaller was back up with the Sabres in Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay.

Buffalo's roster was depleted at the trade deadline and with Zemgus Girgensons still ailing from a foot injury the team required some help from the minors. Schaller logged 11:26 of ice time in his seventh NHL appearance of the season.
Mar 4 - 10:17 AM

Anders Lindback allowed three goals on 35 shots Tuesday, but was saddled with a loss in a 3-0 shutout against Tampa Bay.

Lindback suffered through a disastrous stretch in Dallas playing behind Kari Lehtonen and had not seen the ice since February 7th entering Tuesday's action. His overall record now stands at 2-9-0 while his GAA is 3.65 and his save percentage is .880.
Mar 3 - 10:59 PM

Despite coming out on the wrong end of a 3-0 shutout Tuesday night, Zach Bogosian offered his fantasy owners some help.

Bogosian led the Sabres with seven shots on goal and also added five hits and two blocked shots in about 27 minutes of ice time. Since joining Buffalo, the former third overall selection has averaged 26:57 in ice time and has been a productive source of PIM, hits and blocks.
Mar 3 - 10:56 PM

Mikhail Grigorenko will be scratched on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Through Girgorenko's first 55 NHL games, he's posted four goals, 10 points, and 22 hits while averaging 11:45 of ice time per game. However, he's put up 10 goals and 31 points in 38 AHL Rochester games this season.
Mar 3 - 7:00 PM

Jerry D'Amigo has been called up by the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo acquired D'Amigo from Columbus back in December in exchange for Luke Adam. D'Amigo has six goals and 19 points in 31 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 3 - 12:25 PM

Mikhail Grigorenko has been called up by the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo needed reinforcements after its focus on trading players for picks before the deadline. That aside though, this is a great opportunity for Grigorenko to get some more NHL ice time ahead of the 2015-16 campaign. He has 10 goals and 31 points in 38 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Mar 3 - 12:24 PM

Anders Lindback will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

It will be Lindback's first start with Buffalo since he was acquired on Feb. 11. With Michal Neuvirth dealt on Monday, Lindback has a real shot of becoming Buffalo's starter for the rest of the season.
Mar 3 - 12:07 PM

Mark Pysyk is still being tested to determine why he collapsed Saturday during a pickup basketball game.

"He's got a few more tests to get done," GM Tim Murray said. "It doesn't seem, thank God, that it's serious but who knows what serious is? You take a seizure that serious. We just want him to have the best care, take his time, feel comfortable when he wants to come back. Certainly we're going to do everything we can to rule out everything that we can." Pysyk hasn't returned to practice yet.
Mar 3 - 9:36 AM

Tyler Ennis (groin) is expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday.

He missed the team's last two games with a groin injury, but felt good at Monday's practice. Buffalo has some roster spots up front to fill after trading Chris Stewart, Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn at the deadline. With Ennis back, the Sabres will have to bring up a pair of players from the minors.
Mar 3 - 9:31 AM

Buffalo continued to clean house Monday, sending four players out of town, including three pending unrestricted free agents, for draft picks.

"We're in 30th place," GM Tim Murray said. "Our time is the future, and we added assets for the future. Was it a good day? It’s never a good day trading good people away. I talked to them all, and they all understood. ... When you are at the bottom or near the bottom, you trade out guys that can help other teams for future assets." The Sabres have to first-round picks and two second-round choices in 2015, one of each in 2016 as well as a first and two seconds in 2017.
Mar 3 - 9:18 AM

Jack Nevins was shipped to Buffalo in the Torrey Mitchell trade.

He has no points and 88 penalty minutes in 32 games with Hamilton of the AHL this year.
Mar 2 - 4:17 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have acquired Chad Johnson and a 2016 third-round pick from the New York Islanders in exchange for Michal Neuvirth.

Johnson has a 3.08 GAA and .889 save percentage in 19 games this season. He'll join forces with Anders Lindback to form the worst goaltending duo in the NHL. Although one of them will have to play, neither of them should be on your fantasy roster in any standard leagues unless you're desperate for starts.
Mar 2 - 1:50 PM

Nikita Zadorov was back in the lineup on Saturday.

He picked up an assist and logged 15:09 of ice time in Buffalo's 5-3 loss to Florida. Zadorov hadn't played since Feb. 19 and he was scratched for the last two games after he arrived late for a team meeting.
Mar 2 - 8:18 AM

The Buffalo Sabres were outshot 47-14 in Saturday's loss to the Florida Panthers.

This has been the theme of Buffalo's season for the most part. A stat that is even more ridiculous is that the Panthers fired 76 shot attempts in the game while the Sabres only had 30. The shots on goal in the final 40 minutes were 37-8. Expect the Sabres to ship a few players out of town between now and the March 2nd trade deadline.
