Housley looking for 'shot mentality' following loss to Leafs

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

If the Buffalo Sabres have learned anything in their preseason slate thus far, it's how much more they have to learn. As the players adjust to a new system under coach Phil Housley, inconsistency plagued the team in a 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs at KeyBank Center on Saturday night. 

While the experience and talent within the lineups seemed to be tilted in Buffalo's favor, Toronto controlled the opening period for the second night in a row and won the game on a power-play goal by Kasperi Kapanen early in the third. 

With the loss, the Sabres fell to 1-2-1 in the preseason.

Slow start, penalty trouble plagues Sabres in loss to Leafs

Ullmark makes 32 saves; Rodrigues leaves with injury

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

TORONTO - Facing a Toronto Maple Leafs team that was not only coming off of two bad preseason losses, but also dressing many of its stars for their home crowd, the Buffalo Sabres expected their opponent to come out with guns blazing at Ricoh Coliseum on Friday night.

Even with that foresight, the Sabres couldn't keep up. A lopsided first-period in favor of Toronto gave way to penalty trouble for Buffalo over the final 40 minutes, and a pair of late empty-net goals sealed a 3-0 win for the Maple Leafs.

Ullmark starts in net as Sabres open home-and-home with Leafs

Updates on Scandella and Nylander; Competition at center

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

With a full year as a starter in the AHL under his belt, it was fair to assume entering the offseason that Linus Ullmark had put himself in a position to assume the backup role in the NHL full-time. Ullmark led all AHL goalies with 3,082:36 of total ice time and was named an All-Star. 

Then July 1 came, and the Sabres brought Chad Johnson back on a one-year deal. The move was made not because the team felt Ullmark wasn't ready to play in the NHL, Jason Botterill said at the time, but rather because they saw more benefit in him playing every game as opposed to sitting as backup to Robin Lehner.
