Ullmark makes 44 saves in win over Blue Jackets

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Coming off of four straight losses and with one game to go before their bye week, Phil Housley decided that the Buffalo Sabres were in need of a spark for their contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. It came in the form of a goalie wearing a "Minions" mask. 

Linus Ullmark made a career-high 44 saves in his season debut and the Sabres solidified their effort defensively in a 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets. The victory was Ullmark's first in the NHL since April 9, 2016, and Buffalo's first since Dec. 29. 

So, Linus, how did it feel?

Against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday, Eichel will take the ice for the first time with a new distinction: NHL All-Star. The third-year forward was named to the Atlantic Division roster for the 2018 NHL All-Star game on Wednesday, the first selection of his career.

Bogosian leaves physical, emotional practice with injury

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

Following a loss to the Winnipeg Jets that prompted Phil Housley to call for his team to show a greater sense of defensive urgency, the Buffalo Sabres held a physical, competitive practice at KeyBank Center on Wednesday morning.

With that physicality came emotion, and potentially a loss on defense. Zach Bogosian had to be helped off the ice while battling Evander Kane for a loose puck in the corner on one drill. On another, emotions boiled over and prompted an exchange between Kane and Justin Falk. 

Housley said that the team will know more regarding Bogosian's status once he's finished being evaluated later in the day. As for the confrontation between Kane and Falk, all sides agreed that the emotions shown may have been healthy for a struggling team.
