Dec 2 - 1:25 PM

Linus Ullmark heads to the minors.

Ullmark was summoned so that he could serve as Anders Nilsson's backup while Robin Lehner recovered from a hip injury. Ullmark has a 2.85 GAA and .913 save percentage in 15 AHL contests in 2016-17.
Dec 2 - 12:12 PM

Marcus Foligno posted his 100th career point on Thursday in a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers.

He earned an assist on goal by Brian Gionta during the second period. The trio of Foligno, Gionta and Johan Larsson combined for two goals and two assists in the contest. Foligno has seven points in 23 games this season.
Dec 2 - 8:00 AM

Johan Larsson collected a goal off a wacky deflection from well beyond the offensive blue line during Thursday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Larsson was the beneficiary just 18 seconds into the match when a Jake McCabe lob bounced off Larsson and fooled Henrik Lundqvist for the long-distance goal. He's now up to four goals and eight points in 23 games this season.
Dec 2 - 12:01 AM

Jack Eichel worked his magic to push his Sabres past the Rangers in Thursday's 4-3 win.

Eichel scored his second power play goal of the season to knot the game at three late in the third, and would later cap things off with a fantastic goal to give the Sabres a lead they'd go on to keep. He now has three goals and four points with three power play points in just two games so far.
Dec 1 - 11:58 PM

Brian Gionta tallied his first two-point game on Thursday since the second game of the season on Oct. 16th.

Gionta scored two goals that night, whereas tonight he scored one marker and added an assist. Buffalo's captain is now up to five goals and 10 points through 23 games this season.
Dec 1 - 11:56 PM

Anders Nilsson was able to top Henrik Lundqvist in Thursday's 4-3 win thanks to a mad finish by Jack Eichel.

Nilsson stopped 22 of 25 shots, including eight of 10 on the kill. Down 3-2 late in the third, Eichel took it upon himself to fix that and scored the final two goals of the game to improve Nilsson's record to 4-2-2 on the season with a 2.30 GAA and .934 save percentage.
Dec 1 - 11:55 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have tabbed Anders Nilsson for Thursday's match against the Rangers.

Through seven games Nilsson has allowed just 15 goals and boasts a beastly .939 save percentage. While that's certainly going to fall at some point this season, why must it be tonight? His SV% at home is .958 and against Eastern foes is .947.
Dec 1 - 5:56 PM

Linus Ullmark has been summoned by the Buffalo Sabres.

There was a chance that Robin Lehner (hip) would serve as Buffalo's backup on Thursday, but the promotion of Ullmark seems to rule that out. Anders Nilsson will still be the Sabres' starter Thursday night.

Robin Lehner (hip) will not be able to start on Thursday.

Lehner left Tuesday's contest due to the injury. The good news is that he probably won't be sidelined for too long. "It feels 90 percent," Lehner said. "It’s a little stiff still, but it feels good." He might even serve as the backup on Thursday, though Buffalo might ultimately call up someone to serve in that role.
Dec 1 - 2:41 PM

Anders Nilsson should be in goal for the Sabres on Thursday night versus the Rangers.

Robin Lehner is day-to-day with a hip injury, but could be available to serve as Nilsson's understudy. If he can't then Linus Ullmark will be brought up from the AHL's Rochester Americans.
Dec 1 - 7:25 AM

Robin Lehner is considered day-to-day with a hip injury.

The ailment forced him to pull out of Tuesday's match against Ottawa after just 17:48 of playing time. It's unclear right now if the Sabres will need to call up a goaltender for Thursday's contest. The team will see how Lehner feels in the morning.
Nov 30 - 3:55 PM

Rasmus Ristolainen contributed two power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Ottawa Senators.

He accounted for just four assists in 14 games during the month of November, but could see a turnaround in December. The return of Jack Eichel energized Buffalo's offense, especially on the power play, and Ristolainen logged 4:45 of time on the man advantage in Tuesday's win.
Nov 30 - 10:08 AM

Sam Reinhart earned a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 victory versus the Ottawa Senators.

Reinhart has generated two goals and three helpers in the last four contests. He should get a significant boost with Jack Eichel back in the lineup. The duo combined for great numbers on the same line at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
Nov 30 - 9:53 AM

Kyle Okposo picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win against Ottawa.

Both of his points came on the power play. Okposo has seven goals and eight helpers after 21 games this season.
