Welcome to February Buffalo Sabres fans! February happens to be one of my all time favourite months since my birthday makes it’s once a year appearance and there are always some great games of pond hockey happening at this time of year.
The Buffalo Sabres are back in action today as they play a string of 4 games in the next 7 days ahead of the Olympic break, which is coming up on the 7th. Enjoy them while you can because you’ll be missing your blue and gold boys during the break.
Before we can get you to game day news, we need to go on a stroll around the NHL together. Sit back, enjoy your morning coffee and let’s go.
With the Olympic break now just a week away, it’s time for Ryan Miller and Jonathan Quick to kick their games into over drive as they look to leave one last impression for Team USA ahead of Sochi.

The legendary Martin Brodeur‘s time between the pipes as a starter is quickly coming to an end and there is some talk the New Jersey Devils may pull the trigger on a trade. I couldn’t imagine Brodeur in another jersey and Brodeur might not like where he ends up based on the poor goaltending market. [Sports Net]
Is New Jersey Devils head coach Peter DeBoer a rough coach behind closed doors? Do his players enjoy playing for him or does he ride them like a Tyrant? Find out in this interesting read. [Pucks and Pitchforks]
