Sharpen Up: October 21, 2017

by Chris Ryndak @ChrisRyndak / Sabres.com

The Sabres were on the wrong end of things last night in their 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks last night at KeyBank Center. They'll be back at it tonight when they face the Boston Bruins at TD Garden tonight at 7 p.m. 

The GMC Game Night pregame show with Duffer and Marty kicks off at 6:30 on MSG. RJ and Rayzor have the call after that. Dan will be on hand as well throughout the night and will have a game preview with Jourdon here on Sabres.com later today. We'll hear from Phl Housley closer to game time as well.

Here's what you need to know.

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.

Sabres recall Fedun from Rochester

by Sabres PR @SabresPR / Sabres.com

The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has recalled defenseman Taylor Fedun from the Rochester Americans (AHL).

Fedun (6'1", 201 lbs., 6/4/1988) has one assist in three games with the Americans this season after signing a two-year contract extension with the Sabres in June. He appeared in 27 NHL games during the 2016-17 season, recording a career-high seven points (0+7). He also led Sabres defensemen in assists per 60 (1.16) and his 5-on-5 shot attempts percentage (53.7%) ranked 23rd among all NHL defensemen with more than five games played in 2016-17.

Sabres focused on finding consistency in preparation

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

When it comes to looking back at the Buffalo Sabres' loss in Vegas on Tuesday, Phil Housley said there's a difference between dwelling on the past and learning from it. Thus practice on Thursday ended on a lighthearted note, with fill-in goaltender Ryan Vinz called upon to break the huddle at center ice (more on him later). 

At the same time, Housley maintained that the Sabres need to be aware of what hampered them in their game against the Golden Knights, one that saw them struggle through two periods before finally erasing a three-goal deficit in an eventual overtime loss.

OFF ICE

Whenever I walk into an arena, no matter the city, the history of the game - and the connections that I've been fortunate enough to have made over the years - tend to make their way to the forefront of my mind.

Just a few weeks ago at HarborCenter was no exception.
