Scandella's offensive contributions continued to progress in Boston

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

When the Buffalo Sabres acquired Marco Scandella from Minnesota back in June, general manager Jason Botterill expressed his belief that the defenseman might have more to give offensively that what we've seen from him in the past. 

After missing all of the preseason as he worked his way back from offseason hip surgery, Scandella's shot attempts have risen steadily through his first nine games as a Sabre, coming to a head with a season-high eight attempts and a team-high six shots on goal in Boston on Saturday. 

With that performance, he's now averaging 2.2 shots per game. His career-high for a full season is 1.8, set in 2014-15. He's averaging 3.4 shot attempts, up from his average of 2.8 last season.

Shawinigan's Vasily Glotov heats up with 1st hat trick of QMJHL career

by Kris Baker @SabresProspects / SabresProspects.com

It was inevitable that Shawinigan Cataractes overage forward Vasily Glotov (2016, seventh round) was going to start heating up in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

That moment took place last week as Glotov scored five goals in the week's three road games, including his first-ever QMJHL hat trick in a Sunday win at Moncton.

Sabres hope to build off lessons of comeback victory in Boston

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

BOSTON - In the visiting dressing room at TD Garden on Saturday night, after he had scored his overtime goal and a failed challenge sealed a much-needed victory for the Buffalo Sabres, Ryan O'Reilly had a message for the rest of his teammates.

It didn't take long for Jack Eichel to echo that message when he addressed the media after the game.

"I think we need to use this game as an example of what it takes to win a hockey game," Sabres forward Eichel said. "Factor said it after the game, it doesn't mean much if you don't come back Tuesday and have a good performance."

Redmond, Fedun will both take warmups in Boston

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

BOSTON - It hasn't yet been decided whether or not Zach Redmond will make his Sabres debut when the team takes the ice in Boston on Saturday night. After hearing Redmond talk at TD Garden prior to the game, what is certain is that he's happy to be here. 

Redmond had already foreseen his time with the Montreal Canadiens coming to an end when the Sabres acquired him in exchange for Nicolas Deslauriers on Oct. 4. Since then, he said he couldn't imagine an organization making a better first impression.

Bad habits continue as Sabres fall to Canucks

Beaulieu leaves with injury; Okposo sees ice time decreased

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

In order to win at home against a Vancouver Canucks team coming off a lopsided loss one night prior, Phil Housley and the Buffalo Sabres knew they'd need a more complete effort than the one they had in Vegas on Tuesday.

Instead, their game against the Canucks in many ways resembled their loss to the Golden Knights. The Sabres scored first, but then got outplayed for the majority of the first 40 minutes in a 4-2 loss at KeyBank Center on Friday night. 

"It was gross," Sabres forward Kyle Okposo said of the team's start. "That was gross. We didn't come out ready to play. It was what we had stressed, what we had talked about. We didn't do it … That's on us."

Antipin, Griffith join lineup vs. Canucks

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Following their loss to Vegas on Tuesday, Phil Housley said that the Buffalo Sabres' fault was in their preparation. That game had been preceded by a day off, and Housley thought the Sabres lacked their competitive mindset when the puck dropped.

The Sabres find themselves in a similar position on Friday, hosting the Vancouver Canucks in their first game back from a long western road trip. 

"It was a valuable lesson," Housley said. "Coming off the road you tend to decompress as a player because you come home, you're with your family, you have to get that mindset of gearing up again and mentally preparing because Vancouver's a hardworking team.
