First Report: Penalty Kill Keys Sabres 3-1 Win

  • Posted on November 11, 2009 at 11:05 pm

The Edmonton Oilers dragged themselves into the HSBC Arena Wednesday night on the heels of playing their third game in four nights.  Nobody could’ve blamed them for looking tired and lethargic.  Well, they were but fortunately for them the Buffalo Sabres were every bit as sluggish as their tired foes.

But at the end of the day the only that counts is the tally in the win/loss column.  From Buffalo’s perspective they’ll gladly take the 3-1 victory that was earned in no small part by their penalty killing prowess.

“We did a good job of lanes.” Lindy Ruff said. “We did a good job of staying in front of people. When the puck was there, we did a good job of being there to get it out.”

T.O. Injured, Edwards Starting, Omon Cut

  • Posted on November 11, 2009 at 2:06 pm

Even after having a bye week, the extra time off has failed to heal the injury ravaged Buffalo Bills.

Terrell Owens was not a participant at practice today. He’s suffering from a strained hip.

“I don’t know,” Jauron said when asked about how it happened.  “He practiced on Monday and it wasn’t bothering him.  On late Tuesday all of a sudden it really started to bother him.”

“He was in meetings (today), but it was very uncomfortable for him.  So right now it’s pretty uncomfortable.  We’re kind of hoping it goes away as quick as it came.  That’s our hope.  We really won’t know anymore until tomorrow.”

Sabres Preview: Scouting the Edmonton Oilers

  • Posted on November 11, 2009 at 12:20 pm

When possible on Buffalo Sabres’ game nights we’ll get a perspective from a writer covering the opposition.   Derek from Copper and Blue was nice enough to answer some questions in preparation for tonight’s game with the Edmonton Oilers.

Special teams will be a key factor in tonight’s game.  The Sabres power play has struggled this season but  have scored a couple of power play goals in recent games.  With the power play starting to click, the Oilers might be the perfect team to play against.  Edmonton is in the bottom half of the league in both the power play and penalty kill.

Five ways Dick Jauron can save his job

  • Posted on November 11, 2009 at 11:56 am

Before the 2008 NFL regular season ended - which, for the Buffalo Bills and even-then-embattled coach Dick Jauron, came in particularly brutal fashion - Bills fans across the nation began calling for a change at head coach. When their wish was not granted in late December of 2008, the countdown was officially on. Jauron’s 2009 coaching seat was hot from the moment owner Ralph Wilson chose to keep him days after the close of the 2008 season, and after a 3-5 start in ‘09, Jauron’s seat remains one of the hottest in the NFL.

There are websites, billboards and petitions dedicated to Jauron’s ouster. As with any lingering desire, aspects of the campaign have reached irrational levels in some circles. No matter what happens over the second half of this season, selling Jauron and the current regime of decision-makers at One Bills Drive to an understandably impatient fan base next season could prove difficult. Still, fans are only part of the rationale behind any given football decision, and even with all of the angst directed towards Jauron from every angle, there are ways that he can survive the 2009 season in Buffalo.

Like they have throughout a season of injuries and narrow losses, the University at Buffalo football team fought back valiantly throughout its nationally-televised game against Ohio University, coming back from a 14-point first-half deficit. In the end, however, the Bulls lost their third straight game decided on the final drive in a heartbreaking 27-24 loss to the Bobcats before 13,032 fans on Senior Night.
