When you last joined As The Sabre Turns, Ryan Miller and Steve Ott were jettisoned to St. Louis during a game that the rest of the team still managed to win.
On Saturday, Pat LaFontaine abandoned the Sabres because of Reasons, going back to his old job with the National Hockey League in New York.
Ted Black said it wasn’t about Ryan Miller or Ted Nolan or anything but a desire to…
It was still winter outside on this first Saturday in March when the noon-time battle between the UB Bulls and the Miami Red Hawks had begun. Most of the seats in the Alumni Arena were full.
After a talented eighth-grade girl belted out the National Anthem and the tip-off was complete, the Bulls came out scoring better than the Red Hawks, but that didn’t last long as the RedHawks…

The Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Tournament was held in a new location this year in hopes of finally finding a successful solution to their yearly pond hockey tournament weather troubles.
The small-sided ice hockey tournament was held at Buffalo RiverWorks down on Ganson Street and, after walking the site and experiencing this event, I think there’s no better location for this event…

Nestled among the storage elevators of St. Mary’s Cement and the General Mills grain elevators and mills on Ganson Street, the seventh annual version of the Labatt Blue Hockey Tournament is underway.
This really is a Buffalo hockey tournament, as on this day alone, the weather was everything from pouring rain to gusty winds, huge wet snowflakes, sleet and whistling winds.

Two really good teams played very…

Considering the long winters that Buffalo deals with year after year, you’d think pulling off a pond hockey tournament would be a breeze.
Well, since 2011’s glorious gathering at the Erie Basin Marina—where the wind was biting, the ice rock-hard and the playing conditions immaculate—precious little has gone right for the Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Tournament.
An unseasonably warm…

Jeff Ruben has put to words what every Bills fan has felt for the last two decades.
In what appears to be an anesthetic-induced moment of honesty—not unlike the viral “David After Dentist” video—after having his wisdom teeth extracted, Ruben releases and emotional rant about the Buffalo Bills’ failed attempts at winning the Super Bowl.
“I just wanted them to win, mom,” Ruben…
