Good morning Buffalo Sabres and welcome to another daily dashboard. I know it’s been awhile, however, I am here writing this and ready to bring you all the latest NHL and Buffalo Sabres related news on this fine Thursday morning. Shall we get started?
Now before we dive into the link this morning, let’s remember that the US and Canadian women’s Olympic hockey teams are battling in the gold medal game this afternoon at 12. Please tune in to see these talented women in another intense rivalry game.
Speaking of team USA, here’s an interview with 2010 Olympian Karen Thatcher about her hockey days. [TooManyMen]
Team USA has certainly been the stronger team, however Canada has found a way to win and also sits 3-0 heading into the Semi’s. Do the USA have a stronger team to take down their rivals? [Bleacher Report]
Patrick Kane says Phil Kessel is probably the best player he has ever played alongside. Sorry Jonathan Toews, guess the Chicago Blackhawks bromance is over. [Sportsnet]
Canada was nearly defeated in the quarter-finals by a relatively unknown goaltender and a team coached by Ted Nolan. We know who Nolan is, however few knew who the man behind the mask for Latvia was until he stopped 55 shots and nearly upset Canada. So who is this mysterious Latvian goaltender? Turns out he actually plays in the AHL. [SportsNet]

Tim Murray did a quick interview during a Rochester Americans game on the 17th and here are a few things you could possibly take away from the interview. [Bleacher Report]
