Sabres Blank Leafs, 3-0

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 10:26 pm

Well, aren’t we streaky?

After going winless for four games, the Buffalo Sabres reeled off the third consecutive victory after shutting out the Toronto Maple Leafs, 3-0 at the Air Canada Centre.  Ryan Miller stopped all 38 Toronto shots he faced in getting his third shut out of the season.  In the process, the Sabres took over first place in the Northeast Division at 16-7-2 for 34 points.

After a scoreless first period, Tim Kennedy got Buffalo on the board with this second goal of the season at 13:07 of the second.  Henrik Tallinder gave the Sabres some breathing room with a goal just 40 seconds into the final period, and Jochen Hecht capped the scoring with his fourth goal of the season at 10:59.

Miller improved to 15-4-2 on the season.  Buffalo is off until Thursday before hosting divisional rival Montreal at the HSBC Arena.

Julius Coles Name MAAC Player of the Week

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Canisius junior guard Julius Coles (Harlem, N.Y.) has been named as the MAAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, the conference office announced today. Coles averaged 26.5 points per game last week as the Golden Griffins went 2-0 in non-conference games against Buffalo and Howard.

In the Griffs’ 70-54 victory over Howard Nov. 28, Coles scored a career-high 27 points after he went 9-for-17 from the field, 3-for-7 from 3-point range and 6-for-8 from the foul line. Coles started last week by matching his previous career-high with 26 points at cross-town rival Buffalo as the Blue and Gold came back to beat the Bulls 73-71 on the road. For the week, he shot 54.5 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3-point land and 71.4 percent from the charity stripe.

WNY: The Undisputed Kings Of High School Football

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 11:57 am

Lost among the hoopla of a big Buffalo Bills win on Sunday was the stunningly dominant performance by Western New York in high school football over the weekend. By the time the New York State finals were finished in Syracuse, Section VI had claimed four state class titles for the second consecutive year.  By doing so, Western New York stamped its signature as being the undisputed hot spot for high school football in the Empire State.

North Tonawanda (Class AA), Sweet Home (Class A), Southwestern (Class C) and Randolph (Class D) all waltzed through their opponents en route to state crowns.  Western New York has now won eight of the last 10 state football crowns.

Bills 31, Dolphins 14: Week 12 Film Session

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 11:02 am

film_reelI’ll be honest. Coming off of a holiday highlighted by three full days of tryptophan-induced lethargy (oh, how I love Thanksgiving), I knew heading into Sunday that my weekly film session post wasn’t going to be as in-depth as usual. My apologies for not warning you before this morning; call it a preparatory lethargy on my part.

The Buffalo Bills blew the Miami Dolphins out yesterday. There, I said it. If we’re calling the Bills’ 27-7 loss to New Orleans a blowout loss, then their 31-14 performance yesterday was a blowout win. I’ve got some observations for you to ponder and/or expand upon after the jump, but let’s just get the most obvious note out of the way: Gus Johnson is awesome. Moving on.

The Unemployed Chef: My Big, Fat Italian Thanksgiving

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 11:01 am

Being this was a holiday week and all, I thought I’d switch things up a bit. Any tailgating food I would’ve whipped up for Sunday would’ve most likely be some concoction of Thanksgiving leftovers and scraps. So it’s only right to show you guys the origins of those leftovers and scraps, right?

Here’s a little peek at Thanksgiving, done the fat I-talian way. To me, it’s one of those days where I always make sure I have a festive pair of stretch pants on hand. Although this year, I’m not sure stretch pants did the trick. I needed a stretch stomach. Something perhaps along the line of this..

You Can’t Rush Beauty, Partna

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 11:01 am

“You can’t rush beauty, Partna.”

That was the expression uttered by Terrell Owens’ bodyguard Pablo on the premiere of the “The T.O. Show” on VH-1 this summer.   There could be a million nouns used to pinpoint T.O.’s performance the first half of his season in Buffalo, and beauty wouldn‘t be one of them.  Though the first eight games of 2009 Owens grabbed all of 23 passes, managed just 281 yards and caught exactly one touchdown pass. He was on pace for his worst season since his rookie year with San Francisco in 1996.

But a funny thing happened to his humdrum, one-and-done campaign. The T.O. turnaround is in full flight and suddenly, labeling it as beauty would be quite the understatement.  Breathtaking may be more fitting.

Schutz scores a pair as Portland continues to roll

  • Posted on November 30, 2009 at 10:59 am

Felix Schutz scored twice including the game winner late in the second period to lead the Portland Pirates to a 3-2 win over the Springfield Falcons in an American Hockey League game played Sunday in front of 2,472 at the MassMutual Center.

Paul Byron netted the other Pirates goal while Matt Generous collected two assists as the Pirates won for the second straight time and extended their point straight to nine games (6-0-3-0). In addition, the Pirates have now collected at least one point in each of their last five road games going 3-0-2-0. The victory also put Portland above .500 for the first time this season at 11-10-3-0.
