Re: Block M's Buffalo Sabres (NHL 12)

Block 2 Update: 11-6-3, 5th in EC

Leading goal scorer Thomas Vanek has helped Buffalo to 5th place after 20 games.
Injury Bug Hits Fifth Place Sabres
BUFFALO, NY - Injuries are something each and every NHL team has to deal with. Now, Buffalo must fill a hole on the blue line after D Jordan Leopold left a 4-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes with a concussion and is expected to be out 4-5 weeks.

D Alexander Sulzer will step into the void left by Leopold.

Buffalo will enter the third block of the season without Leopold but with him the Sabres pushed their record to 11-6-3 in the second block of the season. The Sabres had the opportunity to make up ground on division leader Boston who is off to a great start behind the stellar play of goalie Tim Thomas but fell to the Bruins 6-2 on November 12th.

Highlight of the Block: The Sabres had just three goals in the last 11 periods during their November 4th meeting with Calgary. Locked in a 1-1 tie in the third period D Jordan Leopold picked a great time for his first goal of the season as he blasted a puck by Calgary goalie Miikka Kipursoff with 28.1 seconds left to win the game for the Sabres.

Needs Improvement: Backup goalie Jhonas Enroth. The Sabres do not want to get in a position where they are sacrificing any chance at winning when they want to give G Ryan Miller a nights rest. Enroth is now 0-2 in starts with an embarrassing showing against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins allowing four goals in the first nine minutes.

Thank you, realism is definitely the key to a long and successful dynasty. I strive for it because once I don't think things are realistic it becomes easy to lose interest.

Re: Block M's Buffalo Sabres (NHL 12)

Block 3 Update: 16-11-3, 6th in EC
Tyler Ennis put Buffalo on a high note, it soon ended.
Highest Highs and the Lowest Lows
BUFFALO, NY - The Sabres started the third block of the year with the biggest win of their young season. After a 6-2 drubbing in Boston on November 12th the Sabres got another shot at the current big dog on the block and took the Bruins down in a shootout after Derek Roy and Tyler Ennis beat the leagues best goalie, Tim Thomas, to give Sabres a 1-1 record so far against the defending champs.

Then the Sabres would split a pair of games against Columbus (L) and Washington (W) before the wheels fell off.

The NHL's worst team, the New York Islanders, hit HSBC Arena and head coach Lindy Ruff figured it was about time for backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to get his first win. C Derek Roy became the worst nightmare of Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro scoring on four of his first seven shots in the game as Buffalo led 5-2 over New York at the start of the third period.

Enroth allowed five goals and New York added an empty netter to win 8-5 to deliver a crushing blow to the Sabres' confidence. This was apparent the next week as Buffalo struggled being outscored 20-3 in their next three games to extend their losing streak to four games.

The losing would end against Florida on December 9th as Buffalo ended the block doing a complete 180 and currently sits on a three game winning streak.

Highlight of the Block: Tyler Ennis closing out the shootout against Boston got HSBC Arena as loud as it's been in years.

Needs Improvement: Still Jhonas Enroth. Enroth's meltdown against the Islanders sunk the entire team. Enroth is now at 0-4 on the year with a GAA of over five. The Sabres have begun looking at other options to backup G Ryan Miller.

Re: Block M's Buffalo Sabres (NHL 12)

Block 4 Update: 19-16-5, 12th in EC
Sabres Captain Derek Roy and Buffalo missed out on two shots at division leading Toronto.
Bad Run Continues
BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo finished the last block on a three game winning streak and a fourth straight win would put Buffalo ahead of Toronto in the division. The Sabres would lose 4-1 and then again to the Maple Leafs six days later as part of a four game losing streak.

The losing streak was close to reaching five as Buffalo went to overtime with Washington but D Robyn Regehr found the back of the net to stop the slide and give the Sabres a much needed two points. Buffalo would get a point out of their next game losing to New Jersey in a shootout before losing two and then winning two.

Buffalo has fallen outside of the playoff picture in the East but is not far out. Buffalo is just two points out of the eight seed currently held by Montreal.

Highlight of the Block: Robyn Regehr's overtime goal to snap the losing streak.

Needs Improvement: Scoring, Buffalo currently ranks dead last in goals scored. The Sabres (87) have seven less goals scored than the New York Islanders (94), the Islanders are 8-26-4 which puts them 17 points behind the next closest team.

Re: Block M's Buffalo Sabres (NHL 12)

EJ Hradek Tweets Change Possible in Buffalo
BUFFALO, NY - NHL Network senior reporter EJ Hradek posted a tweet suggesting it's make or break time in Buffalo.


@EJHradek_NHL: "Someone close to new Sabres owner Terrence Pegula says if Buffalo does not turn their season around a shakeup at the trade deadline is likely."

Buffalo already holds two first round picks thanks to the Paul Gaustad to Nashville deal. Options are nearly endless as both those picks are currently positioned to be top ten selections.

Re: Block M's Buffalo Sabres (NHL 12)

Block 5 Update: 24-21-5, 10th in EC
Jochen Hecht is out for the rest of the regular season injured.
Thanks For Playing
BUFFALO, NY - The struggling Buffalo Sabres were dealt another blow when second line center Jochen Hecht left the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on January 13th.

The Sabres would go on to win 4-1 but the news turned sour when they found out Hecht had a concussion and will be kept out the remainder of the regular season. The 34-year-old Hecht is in the final year of his current contract and could have played his last game in a Sabres uniform if the Buffalo does not reach the playoffs.

With Hecht out of the lineup Cody Hodgson will step into the second line center role the rest of the year and Corey Tropp will begin to see playing time on the fourth line.

As the Sabres dealt with the adjustments the chase for the playoffs continued as the team went 5-5 in the fifth block of the season. The Sabres had a big chance to pull closer to the eight seed in their most recent game Montreal, who currently holds that spot, but fell 4-2 and are now four points outside of the playoff picture.

Highlight of the Block: The 4-1 victory of Toronto. The Maple Leafs have dominated Buffalo so far this season so despite losing center Jochen Hecht getting a win over a team that has had Buffalo's number shows signs of promise.

Needs Improvement: Winning the key games. Six teams sit in the East with 53-54 points and Buffalo is one of them. Winning over Montreal in their last game would have not only put Buffalo ahead of this pack but also would have kept Buffalo within two points of the eight seed but the Sabres never had a chance in this big matchup.
