Sabres Recap: Buffalo 2 @ Carolina 1 (OT)

Following their OT loss in Washington last night, and Carolina’s big road win over the Islanders, Sunday’s game between the Sabres and Canes promised to be an intense, playoff-like atmosphere. Now with Carolina within just two points of them, the Sabres would need to play a more defensive style of play than the run-and-gun affair they played with the Capitals last night. Jhonas Enroth was back in net for the Sabres to face Cam Ward for the Hurricanes. A tight-checking opening to the game saw the two teams give up few scoring chances. Carolina had just one shot through the first nine minutes of play. Just over ten minutes into the period, all three of Carolina’s forwards got caught down low and on the ensuing 3-on-2 rush, Chris Butler... [continued]

Recap: Buffalo 4 @ Washington 5 (OT)

With Ryan Miller still at home, listed as day-to-day while nursing an upper body injury (reported to be a deep bone bruise on his shoulder/chest, and that his head and collarbone are both fine), the Sabres again turned to Jhonas Enroth, coming off his first career shutout, to try and shut down the likes of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and the rest of the high-flying Capitals. To counter him in goal, the Capitals stated Michael Neuvirth, who was looking for his 26th win of the season. Enroth’s shutout streak would not last much longer, as just 37 seconds in, Tyler Myers got caught up ice and John Carlson and Mike Knuble broke in 2-on-1 on Chris Butler. While Enroth was able to stop the first bid from Carlson, Butler failed to tie up Knuble and he put home the rebound for his 22nd of the season and an early 1-0 lead... [continued]

Recap: Sabres 1 vs. NY Rangers 0

Coming off a loss to Toronto, coupled with Ryan Miller now being day-to-day with an upper-body injury after a Dion Phaneuf slapshot, the Sabres would need Jhonas Enroth to fill in admirably more than ever. Along with Miller, Jochan Hecht also missed the game due to injury, while Shaone Morrison was a healthy scratch after a dreadful -3 performance last night. Mike Mancari and Marc-Andre Gragnani were called up to fill out the Buffalo line up. They would be in very tough against a streaking New York Rangers team being led by their all-world goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, who has six wins his last seven games, while giving up just one goal over his previous three starts...

Recap: Buffalo 2 vs. New Jersey 0

Facing another opponent coming off a shutout defeat, the Sabres looked to run their win streak to three with a win over the fading New Jersey Devils. They would have to do so without the services of Jordan Leopold, who last night was lost for the season with a hand injury. After a torrid stretch between January 9 and March 15 that saw the Devils go a remarkable 23-3-2, they came into this game losers of four of their last five. Coming off a rare shutout performance in a 1-0 shootout loss to Pittsburgh on Friday night, Martin Brodeur was back in net to face the red-hot Ryan Miller, who was also starting on back-to-back nights...

Recap: Sabres 3 vs. Preds 4 (OT)

With both teams coming off home victories last night to improve their playoff positions, Sunday’s rare late-March cross-conference game allowed for one of these teams to further strengthen its hold on a top-eight seed. Losers of eight of their last ten on the road, the Predators hoped to change things up by starting back-up Anders Lindback, for the first time since a February 3 loss in Philadelphia, to face Ryan Miller. The better-rested Sabres came out of the gates faster than the Preds, leading to a couple of chances in the first five minutes, including a shot by Tyler Ennis that rang off the post. Just 6:44 in, however... [continued]
