Sabres' Nolan close to new contract: report
Buffalo Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan is reportedly close to accepting the job full-time.

Buffalo Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan is reportedly close to accepting the job full-time. He told reporters in Buffalo on Monday that his representative is handling a new contract with general manager Tim Murray.

"I guess he and Tim will be talking soon if [they haven't] talked already," Nolan told the Olean Times Herald. "It's formalities and getting things ironed out and doing all the legal stuff. … We'll leave it in their hands for now."

Nolan, who first coached the Sabres from 1995-97, returned to the organization when he was named Sabres interim coach on Nov. 12, 2013 after Ron Rolston was fired. The Sabres are 15-22-7 under Nolan following a 4-15-1 start.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
