Matt Moulson hasn't scored a goal in 40 consecutive games.

Moulson just can't buy one right now. The 32-year-old has mainly been playing on the fourth line of late, but he was given a chance on the second line with Jack Eichel in Saturday's game against Boston, but still didn't find the back of the net. "The mere conversation of saying 40 games without one for Matt seems impossible," coach Dan Bylsma said. "It's time for Matt to step up and do something out of the box." Those who took a chance on him in standard fantasy leagues should cut ties with him if they haven't already.

Sam Reinhart is on pace to finish his rookie season with over 20 goals.

The 20-year-old is currently third on the team in that category after scoring in back-to-back games (versus Boston on Thursday and Saturday) for the first time in his career. The former second overall pick is on pace to 22 goals and 35 points in 2015-16. He may not be worthy of a start in standard fantasy leagues this season, but he must be owned in all dynasty/keeper leagues.
Feb 7 - 10:43 AM

Sam Reinhart got a goal for the Sabres in their 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.

It’s not all there yet, but Reinhart, now with 14 goals and 22 points, has been no slouch when it comes to rookie production. He could be in for a breakout as early as next season. Ryan O’Reilly and Jamie McGinn got the helpers.
Feb 6 - 10:02 PM

Robin Lehner set aside 36 shots in the Sabres’ 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.

Can’t fault him for the loss. Lerner has been excellent since returning, posting at least a .943 SV% in four consecutive games. He might be worth trying as a two-three goalie in fantasy leagues. Lehner has a 2.17 GAA and .939 SV%.
Feb 6 - 10:02 PM

Mike Weber, Marcus Foligno, and Carlo Colaiacovo will each be scratched from Saturday's tilt with Boston.

There's a bit of hidden value in both Weber and Foligno if you're looking for tough guy stats. Weber has posted 32 PIMs and blocks with 64 hits in 32 games thus far. While Foligno has recorded 31 PIMs and a whopping 101 hits in 46 games this season.

Robin Lehner will face Boston on Saturday night.

Lehner has been quite good for the Sabres since coming back from injury. Through five games he's allowed just 11 goals on 180 combined shots. That's about as good as it gets, especially on a team like Buffalo.
Feb 6 - 6:08 PM

Daniel Catenacci will make his NHL debut Saturday night versus Boston.

He had a five-game point streak with AHL Rochester prior to getting called up and will get a chance to play because of Marcus Foligno's injury.
Feb 6 - 9:51 AM

Tyler Ennis (upper body) skated by himself after Buffalo's optional session on Friday.

"He's made some good improvements, still not one where he can go all-out on the ice," coach Dan Bylsma said. Ennis has played in just four of the last 31 games and has been absent for 15 straight contests with another on the way Saturday night.
Feb 6 - 9:49 AM

Ryan O'Reilly doesn't like the way he is playing right now.

He has no goals and a minus-10 rating over the last 11 games. "I've been very frustrated with myself the last few games," said O'Reilly. "The last handful of them, I don't think I've been anywhere near where I want to be. I've been terrible in my own end. I haven't been creating as much offense. I don't know if it was just maybe luck early on in the season, but I think I have a lot to learn going forward." O'Reilly wants to step up and make the big plays and he feels he hasn't been doing that lately. He has collected seven assists during his goalless slump.
Feb 6 - 9:46 AM

The Buffalo Sabres have summoned Daniel Catenacci.

Catenacci will make his NHL debut on Saturday. The 22-year-old has seven goals and 16 points in 36 AHL contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 4:55 PM

Marcus Foligno will miss Saturday's game due to a lower-body injury.

Foligno will be day-to-day after that. He has four goals and 11 points in 46 contests this season.
Feb 5 - 12:34 PM

Sam Reinhart netted his 13th goal of the season on Thursday night.

He gave the Sabres a 2-0 lead, but the Boston Bruins rallied for a 3-2 shootout victory. Reinhart is tied with Max Domi and Sam Bennett for fifth among rookies in goal scoring.
Feb 5 - 7:48 AM

Ryan O'Reilly has picked up where he left off following the All-Star break.

He has registered an assist in both games for the Sabres since the NHL resumed play. O'Reilly earned his 25th helper of the season on Thursday night in a 3-2 shootout loss to Boston. He has a team-leading 42 points in 52 games.
Feb 5 - 7:44 AM

Buffalo GM Tim Murray said he has spoken to Jamie McGinn's agent about a contract extension.

Murray and Thane Campbell have had discussions two or three times in recent weeks regarding the pending unrestricted free agent. "I hope that they're talking a lot but it's out of my control," McGinn said. "What I can do comes on the ice, being a good teammate and trying to help this team win. That's between them. My focus in here is to play hockey. I like it here and that's why I have an agent to deal with that kind of stuff." He has been a pleasant surprise this year with 11 goals and 22 points in 52 games.
Feb 5 - 7:40 AM

Evander Kane scored a goal and fired a whopping 11 shots on goal in the Sabres' 3-2 shootout loss to Boston on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old now has 20 points in 42 games this season. He has two goals in his last three games though.
