BOSTON -- Dan Catenacci has played 180 games for the Rochester Amerks the last three years without a sniff of the NHL.  For being drafted by the Sabres in the third round of the 2011 draft, that's being a good soldier. The payoff comes tonight in TD Garden as the 22-year-old will make his NHL debut for Buffalo against the... Read More

Things haven't gone well for Ryan O'Reilly lately. Just ask him.

As the Buffalo Sabres were wrapping up an optional practice Friday, concussed forward Tyler Ennis walked by with a smile, helmet and pair of skates.

The Sabres' struggles in First Niagara Center -- an NHL-worst 9-15-2 record at home -- have been a major talking point all season. Tonight's game here against Boston is a big task, because the Bruins are one of the league's best clubs on the road. While Boston has inexplicably struggled to an 11-13-3 mark in TD Garden,...
