Bolstering the blue line has been an evident priority for the front office in Buffalo, as the Sabres picked up veteran defender Cody Franson, formerly of Blackhawks fame.

4/6/15 - The Buffalo Sabres may be out of contention for the playoffs, but that did not stop them from pulling of a win against the Carolina Hurricanes on April 6. Goalie Andres Lindback made 49 saves to help secure the victory. The Sabres drew ahead early in the game. Mikhail Grigorenko got the Sabres on the board in the fifth minute of play, and Britan Gionta and Johan Larsson also scored for the Sabres. Tyler Ennis had his 20th goal of the season, bringing the lead to 4-0 in the second period. However, the Sabres almost lost their lead after the Hurricanes were able to score three points. The Sabres face the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Friday for their penultimate game of the season. Tickets remain available, starting at $10.
3/30/15 - The Buffalo Sabres may have had a lackluster season so far, but they are not settling for a last place finish. They ended a five game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on March 30. Arizona may have scored the first goal early in the game, but Buffalo dominated the second and third periods. Andrej Meszaros scored twice in the second period, and Brian Gionta and Rasmus Ristolainen added two points in the third period. With the victory, the Sabres are within four points of 29th place, which is currently held by the Coyotes. The Sabres have six games left to get out of last place, starting with a home game against the Maple Leafs on April 1. Tickets are still available with prices starting at $18.
3/23/15 - The Buffalo Sabres lost a close game against the Dallas Stars on the 23rd to bring their current losing streak to three. The Sabres were the first on the scoreboard when Brian Gionta scored at 13:39 in the first period. However, Dallas brought the game to a tie by the close of that period. Buffalo edged ahead during the second period when Gionta scored again. However, early in the 3rd period Dallas tied up the game again. Matt Moulson scored the third and final point for the Sabres at 10 minutes into the game, bringing the Sabres ahead. An answer by Dallas a couple minutes later tied the game, and a subsequent goal secured the victory for the Stars. The Sabres next face the Arizona Coyotes on the 26th, with ticket prices starting at $18.
3/19/15 - After a seven-game losing streak, the Buffalo Sabres finally secured a victory when they beat the Bruins in overtime on the 17th. The Bruins had the lead for most of the game, after scoring around 10 minutes into the first period. However, Rasmus Ristolainen scored for the Sabres during the third period, bringing the game to a tie. After a scoreless overtime, the teams went into a shoot out. Tyler Ennis was the only one to score during the shoot out, largely thanks to a magnificent game by goalie Anders Lindback, who had a career high of 44 saves. The Sabres will look to continue to win when they face the Devils on the 20th (ticket prices start at $14), followed by another game the next night against the Predators in Nashville (ticket prices start at $7).
3/9/15 - The Buffalo Sabres continue their slump as they add two more losses to their losing streak. When they played the Ottawa Senators on March 6th, the Sabres came heartbreakingly close to victory. They earned an early two point lead, and tried to simply defend it as they ran the clock out. It was a good effort, but the Senators were just able to catch up in the final period. That loss must have broken the Sabres' momentum because they lost 1-6 the following night against the Washington Capitals. Buffalo plays the Maple Leafs next on March 11th, but they might have to wait until the 14th to regain their energy when they return to their home rink. A few tickets are still available starting at $118.
3/2/15 - The Buffalo Sabres have been doing well, scoring twice as much as their opponents two games in a row. First, the Sabres beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2 in an away game on Feb. 24th, then they stepped over the Vancouver Canucks on Feb. 26th with 3-6, scoring a whopping four times in the final period. More recently, however, the Sabres have not been doing as well. They started losing when they began their series of away games, first to the Florida Panthers, and then they failed to score once when they played the Tampa Bay Lightning. They will not be able to play on their own ice until March 14th, so they will just have to tough it out until then. Tickets for their return game begin at $43.
2/23/15 - It was a near-upset for the Buffalo Sabres, who came within inches of taking down the NHL-best Nashville Predators on Sunday evening. Buffalo struck first, taking a 1-0 lead on Tyler Ennis’ 15th goal of the season in the second period. Nashville would tie the game with less than five minutes remaining in the final frame, however, sending the contest into overtime where they would ultimately prevail in a 2-1 shootout. The Sabres were frequently shorthanded due to penalties throughout the game, but killed seven of the Predators’ eight power plays. Goalie Michal Neuvirth made 37 saves in an outstanding defensive performance for Buffalo as well, adding to the positive takeaways in spite of the loss. The Sabres will host the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday evening, and tickets are available starting at just $17!
2/16/15 - When they acquired defenseman Zach Bogosian, the Buffalo Sabres were hoping to inject a dose of toughness and intensity to their lineup. Although they fell to the Philadelphia Flyers in the first outing after the trade, coach Ted Nolan summed it up the new roster addition succinctly: “He’s exactly what we ordered.” Bogosian tallied six hits in just over eight minutes on the ice in the opening period, finishing with 11 for the game overall—a season-high for any Sabres player. Nikita Zadorov scored a 5-on-3 power play goal to extend his points streak to seven games. Buffalo can get back on track on Tuesday night when they visit the New Jersey Devils, and you can be a part of the action for as low as $14!
2/9/15 - Six weeks of futility on their home ice was enough for the Buffalo Sabres, who held off the Dallas Stars on Saturday to notch a 3-2 victory, just their 16th of the season. The Sabres built a 3-0 lead mid-way through the second period, and held on for a one-goal victory as goaltender Jhonas Enroth protected the net with 38 saves. Buffalo will have several opportunities to pick up victories against non-playoff ranked teams over the next week, including Ottawa, New Jersey, and two games versus the Philadelphia Flyers. Tickets to see the Sabres take on the Senators on Tuesday can be had for as low as $8, with seats for Sunday’s contest with the Flyers starting at $15 each! Come out to First Niagara Center and support your Sabres!
2/5/15 - No one was happier to turn the calendar than the Buffalo Sabres, who on Tuesday night notched their first win in over a month, a 3-2 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens. Buffalo did not win a game in January, their last victory dating back to December 27th, when they scored an unlikely 4-3 shootout win over the New York Islanders. The Sabres got it done in regulation this time, jumping out to a 3-1 lead in the first period and holding on to score their 15th win of the season. They will try to take momentum into their next game on Thursday night versus the St. Louis Blues. A limited number of seats are still available to see the Sabres take on the Dallas Stars on Saturday, starting at just $24! Don’t delay!
1/28/15 - The Buffalo Sabres continue through their slump as they take on the Calgary Flames. Jan. 27th's game marks the second in the Sabres' series of away games and their tenth loss in a row. Chris Stewart scored the first point of either team 10 minutes into the first period with Tyler Ennis and Tyler Myers assisting. They held this lead for about three minutes, but once it was lost, they were unable to catch up. They held a strong defense in the second period and even outshot the Flames. Unfortunately, they couldn't hold up in the final stretch, only shooting twice while the Flames scored three times. With 14-31-3, the Sabres are overdue for a victory, but they may have to wait until they return to their home rink on Feb 5th.
1/19/15 - The start to 2015 has not been as the Buffalo Sabres had hoped, as they have opened with nine straight losses. They kicked off a five-game road trip in Detroit on Sunday, falling 6-4 to the Red Wings, who managed a comeback victory behind captain Henrik Zetterberg’s sixth career hat trick. Buffalo led 3-0 after the first period, but managed only seven shots on goal through the rest of the game, leaving the door open for the Red Wings to rally. Tyler Ennis scored his eleventh and twelfth goals of the season for the Sabres, who dropped to a record of 14-30-3 with the loss. They will visit Calgary on Tuesday night, before heading to Edmonton to face the Oilers on Thursday. Great seats at Rexall Place are still available starting at just $11!
1/13/15 - The Buffalo Sabres don’t seem to be clicking on all cylinders as of late. They sport a 14-27-3 record, and are currently ranked 8th in the Atlantic Division. Their latest outing didn’t go according to plan against the Detroit Red Wings, losing 3-1. In their tough defeat, Mike Weber was the only player to score and do anything substantial on offense. The Sabres goalie, Michal Neuvirth had 27 saves, but it was not enough to come away with the win. They have now lost 8 straight, and they are desperately in need of a win. Their next game is against the Minnesota, which takes place tomorrow January 15, 2015. Tickets for the game can be bought now, and the starting price is a low $13.

12/29/14 - The Buffalo Sabres finally got a win in the column when they hosted the New York Islanders on December 27. It was a fight to the bitter end, when the Sabres brought home three goals in the third period to tie the game. No one scored in overtime, so the game went into a shootout, with the Sabres earning the only goal and taking the game. Buffalo goes out on the road for four games before coming back to home ice on January 13, when the Red Wings come to town. Get your tickets at Razorgator to enjoy this team and show your support. The Sabres may be in last place, but their Center, Zemgus Girgensons, is leading the field in fan votes to play in the NHL All-Star game.
12/23/14 - The Buffalo Sabres' loss against the Boston Bruins on December 21 in overtime, with a final score of 3-4, creates a three game losing streak. The defeat brings their record to 13-18-3, and they are ranked 8th in the Atlantic Division. They face the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, December 23, with a look to end this losing streak and bring more wins to their record. They are 14 points back from the Red Wings, who are in a six game losing streak. Although the Red Wings are ranked higher, the Sabres have a chance to win, as long as they come to the ice healthy, as several players are ill or injured. After the Red Wings, they will have several home games, starting with the New York Islanders. Tickets are still on sale, starting at $29.
12/15/14 - Tuesday’s 5-1 loss to the Jets in Winnipeg was the continuation of one streak and the end of another for the Buffalo Sabres. In the smaller picture, this loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Buffalo that started against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings on December 9. On a larger scale, Tuesday’s loss means that the Sabres still haven’t won a game in Winnipeg since 1993. Next up, Brian Gionta and company return home to take on the Colorado Avalanche at the First Niagara Center on December 20 (tickets from $29). Following this brief stop at home, the Sabres head out on a two-game road trip with games against the Boston Bruins on December 21 (tickets from $46) and the Detroit Red Wings on December 23 (tickets from $48).
12/10/14 - The Buffalo Sabres broke their two-game losing streak by beating the reigning NHL Champions, the Los Angeles Kings, at home, which was also the Sabres' third straight home victory this season. This 1-0 win was the first shutout for Sabres goalie Tyler Ennis since April 13, 2013, despite the Kings having a 34-16 shot advantage. This win has not changed the Sabres' rankings much, as they remain 8th in the Atlantic Division with a record 10-16-2. The Sabres have a chance for a fourth straight home victory when they play the Calgary Flames on Thursday, December 11th. It should be a tough game for them, as the Flames are ranked 3rd in the Pacific Division with a 17-10-2 record. Tickets are still on sale for this showdown, starting at $10.
12/1/14 - The Buffalo Sabres are on a three-game winning streak and hope to continue the momentum as they take on the Florida Panthers on Saturday at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida near Fort Lauderdale.

Buffalo needs their fans cheering them on. After the Sabres play the Panthers, they go home for four games, starting with the LA Kings on Tuesday the 9th. The Kings are the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, they’re playing strong. Do something different and come out and watch the Sabres play on the ice. Get tickets to their game to show your support and enjoy the camaraderie in the arena.
11/24/14 - The Buffalo Sabres made it two wins in a row last Tuesday, defeating the San Jose Sharks 4-1 in frigid and snowy Buffalo. 6,200 hardy fans showed up in spite of the record breaking snowfall, and witnessed Sabres team captain Brian Gionta’s first two goals of the young season. Gionta also contributed an assist in the Sabres victory. The relentless snow in the Buffalo area forced the postponement of the Sabres Friday night game with the New York Rangers. Upcoming home games include face-offs with the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday, then the first place Montreal Canadiens on Friday November 28th. The Canadiens come to town led by defenseman P.K. Subban, last season’s winner of the James Norris Memorial Trophy, honoring the NHL’s top defensive player. Buy your tickets today and be a part of the excitement that is Buffalo Sabres hockey!
11/18/14 - The Buffalo Sabers have been having a rough season so far. On Nov. 5th they started a five game losing streak, but that all changed on Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Buffalo smashed their opponents with a final score of 2-6, managing to get 2 points in each period and 35 shots total. They are, however, still behind at 4-13-2 and last for their division. The season is still young, though, and if the Sabers bring this energy to the rest of their games, they won’t have any trouble catching up. Make sure you follow the sold-out game on Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks. Your next opportunity to see the Sabers in action will be on Friday when they take on the New York Rangers. Tickets start at $19.
11/10/14 - Another rough game for the Buffalo Sabers on Tuesday. This was the second 1-6 loss for them and the fourth loss in general in a row. This brings them to 3-12-2 for the season and 8th in the Atlantic Division. Unfortunately, they simply weren’t able to land a good score against the St. Louis Blues (10-4-1) until the third period. They were, however, outshooting the Blues 15-10. Buffalo was just having a hard time putting it in the box. The Sabers are having a difficult season so far, but as tricky as it would be to turn around, they aren’t quite done yet. They will be facing the Minnesota Wilds next, and then they’re ready for a series of home games, which might be their best chance to change their bad luck.
11/3/14 - As Buffalo prepares to host the Montreal Canadiens, and the Edmonton Oilers afterwards, fans are hoping for a huge upset. While the Buffalo Sabres have had quite a rocky start to the season, NHL enthusiasts are well aware of how quickly the tables can turn. With an upset, like the Sabres hope to cause this week against their top tier Atlantic division competitor, Buffalo could effectively shake up the league in a hurry as so many teams are running a tight race. Fans, waiting for their Sabres to hit their stride, can do their part by focusing their resolve toward supporting Buffalo as they face off with the Canadiens at home. Tickets for the Montreal vs. Buffalo game are still available, and starting at $13 per seat.
10/27/14 - After coming off of a five game losing streak, including a brutal 5-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday night, the Buffalo Sabres put a win on the board in front of a hometown crowd. The 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings, who they haven’t won against since October 13, 2009, elevates their record to 3-9-1.
The end of regulation play found the Sabres and the Red Wings in a 2-2 tie, leading to overtime and, eventually, the shootout where Zemgus Girgensons scored the winning goal. Not only did this give the Sabres their first home win this year, but the win set a positive tone for their four-game homestand.
Up next, Buffalo hosts the Montreal Canadiens at First Niagara Center this Wednesday, November 5th. The puck drops at 7:30 pm, and tickets can still be purchased beginning as low as $13.
For the Buffalo Sabres, there is no where to go but up! Last year’s campaign was rough, as the team bottomed out with the lowest points in the league, but this forthcoming year marks the start of a new era of hockey for the Buffalo franchise. Their rebuild started in the offseason, with the trade of fan-favorites Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek, but the future of the NHL could very well manifest in the Sabres’ young roster. The Sabres are looking to give their promising prospects tons of experience, confidence and time on the ice in the 2014-2015 season.
With the likes of Sam Reinhart (No.2 in 2014 NHL Draft), Tyler Myers, Tyler Ennis, Torrey Mitchell, not to mention three upcoming 2nd round picks in 2015 and 2016, the Sabres rank the third youngest roster. If it weren’t for the offseason addition of Brian Gionta, Josh Gorges and Matt Moulson, who were brought in for veteran presence to accelerate the development of their young players, Buffalo would be the youngest.
Score Buffalo Sabres tickets for their exciting 2014-2015 campaign and see this team bursting with potential gain some ground back in the NHL. The upstate New York squad will have a tough early schedule. They open up at home against the Columbus Blue Jackets (Oct. 9), followed by a road trip to Chicago (Oct. 11) and finish with a game against Anaheim (Oct. 13)--all within five days. Don’t miss out on Buffalo Sabres tickets when they take on the Los Angeles Kings Oct. 23 and get a taste of playoff hockey. You can’t pass up Sabres ticket when they face arch rivals the Maple Leafs (Oct. 28) and Senators (Dec. 29).
4/7/14 – After being diagnosed with concussions, goalie Nathan Lieuwen and defenseman Chad Ruhwedel will miss the final week of the season. There is good news however for fans with Buffalo Sabres tickets (min. $17) for Tuesday’s game against Detroit - forwards Marcus Foligno, Chris Stewart and Torrey Mitchell have a chance to return to play. Guaranteed to finish in last place, most are looking forward to the NHL draft where the Sabres are assured to be a top two selection. With the second pick locked, and a 25 percent change to win the first, will Buffalo trade their draft pick in 2014?
4/1/14 – The Sabres will lineup for the final time this season on April 13. Currently 12 points behind the Edmonton Oilers (29th place), Buffalo is ready to put the 2013-14 campaign behind them. Ted Nolan signed a three-year contract extension Monday. Coach will continue to rebuild; lining up more talent is on Nolan’s agenda, as is re-signing restricted free agents Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, and Cory Conacher. The future is bright with a talented 2015 class in which the Sabres will be fighting for a top pick.
3/27/14 – The injury-depleted Sabres lineup has one win in their past 10 games. Tonight’s game in Nashville will complete a five game road trip that included their only victory (vs. Edmonton). There are just four more games this season in Buffalo and two are coming up – 3/29 vs. Tampa Bay (avg. $96) and 4/1 vs. New Jersey (avg. $40). Cheer on recently called up duo defenseman Ramus Ristolainen and forward Johan Larsson at First Niagara Center before the team’s 2013-14 campaign comes to a close.
3/18/14 – In Thomas Vanek’s first game back at First Niagara Center since being traded to the New York Islanders in October, the Habs eliminated the Buffalo Sabres from playoff contention. The team’s former scoring leader was honored Sunday with a video tribute. Buffalo will take a five game road trip (first four games in The Great White North) before heading home. The Sabres have just four regular-season games remaining at First Niagara Center; the most affordable being against the New Jersey Devils (avg. $51) April 1 (and no, that is not an April Fool’s Day joke).
3/10/14 – Buffalo welcomed home a couple of kids Sunday: Blackhawk’s Patrick Kane who scored a highlight-reel goal for Chicago and Cory Conacher who made his Sabres debut and added an assist. Getting his first point in his first game with the club impressed head coach Ted Nolan. Watch as the former standout with Canisius College continues to progress with Buffalo Sabres. Tonight’s game against Nashville is the cheapest remaining regular-season game at First Niagara Center (avg. $36).
3/3/14 – The Sabres were part of the biggest NHL trade of-late as the St. Louis Blues acquired Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from Buffalo in exchange for Jaroslav Halak and Chris Stewart. It was an emotional game in San Jose Friday as the Sabres stunned the Sharks 4-2, completing their third straight win since the Olympic break. After a whirlwind weekend, the team will chase their fourth straight win tonight when they visit the Dallas Stars, the first of three straight road games. Buffalo returns home Mar 9 against the defending Stanley Cup Champions, Chicago Blackhawks. Buffalo Sabres tickets for the Sunday meeting range from $46-$213.
2/26/14 - Sorry Buffalo, but this team is propping up the standings from the bottom with only 15 wins and not even their greatest player ever, Gilbert Perreault could get them into the playoffs now. But the loyal Sabres fans will be hoping for a strong finish and have solace in the fact they have 6 of the top 60 picks in the draft. Another plus is the average price for Buffalo Sabres tickets for their remaining games is only $75 and to see the Chicago Blackhawks when they come to town on March 11 you can get in for under $60. Save some dough for awesome Buffalo wings!
2/21/14 – The Sabres (15-34-8) will return to the ice post-Olympics Feb 25 when Buffalo hosts the Carolina Hurricanes. Buffalo Sabres tickets for the team’s first game back are relatively cheap, costing fans anywhere from $26-$90 for a seat inside First Niagara Center. During the break, the Sabres released Linus Omark. The forward was acquired in a trade with Edmonton on Dec 19, giving up a conditional sixth-round draft pick. Omark’s stay in Buffalo was quick lived; the 27-year-old Swede had two assists in 13 games with the Sabres.
2/4/14 – Buffalo has dropped nine of their last eleven, including a disappointing 2-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers Monday. After missing four games with an upper body injury, forward Drew Stafford returned to the Sabres lineup, scoring a goal for Buffalo; but Stafford’s contribution wasn’t enough to take out Edmonton. Hard-hitter Tyler Myers left the game with about four and a half minutes left in the second period with a lower body injury and did not return. As Sabres turn their attention to the trade deadline, the roster looks forward to an Olympic break in which they can regroup. The Sabres are twenty plus points out of the second and final wild card spot and it would take a miracle to come within reach of a playoff berth.
No major changes were made to the Buffalo Sabres roster this offseason. The only major change this 2013-2014 NHL season will come to their Division. All of the Buffalo Sabres rivals are opponents from the former Northeast Division. Last year every team in the Sabres Division finished at .500 or better and four of the five teams advanced to the NHL Playoffs. In 2013, the Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, and Tampa Bay Lightning join the former Northeast Division to become the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference.
Prior to the NHL realignment, the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres were the only two American teams in the League. The Bruins and Sabres have had a rivalry running back to the 1970’s. Buffalo Sabres vs. Boston Bruins tickets at First Niagara Center this season average $208 (2/26), $192 (129), and $156 (10/23). Another rivalry that began back when the Sabres joined the league is Buffalo Sabres vs. Montreal Canadiens. Tickets to the matches on Buffalo ice average $210 (3/16) in the fourth most expensive game on the Sabres schedule and $168 (11/17). The Sabres newest rival, Ottawa Senators, will play in the home opener averaging $152 (10/4) and in mid-December for an average of $129 (12/10). Due to proximity, the Buffalo Sabres also have a rivalry with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Sabres vs. Leafs tickets average $208 (11/9), $204 (11/15), and $74 (9/21 preseason).
Buffalo Sabres tickets are up 14% since last year. Despite the price of Sabres tickets going up an average of $18 a ticket in 2013, they now rank sixteenth in the NHL (last year Buffalo was the 10th most expensive ticket in the league).
