#DUFFALO: Remembering Dave Strader, Mike Boland and Gord Downie

by Brian Duff @duffersabres / Sabres.com

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.

Thrilling comeback overshadowed by 'unacceptable' start in OT loss

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

LAS VEGAS - It almost made for a remarkable comeback. Evander Kane scored with 8.9 seconds in regulation to cap a three-goal, third-period comeback for the Buffalo Sabres, only to see David Perron score in overtime to clinch a 5-4 victory for the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday night. 

But for all of the positives to be drawn from the Sabres' late-game effort, Phil Housley was more concerned with what happened early. 

"I think it's just unacceptable the way we approached the game," Housley said. "We had a chance to build on something and I know this is a process, but the process was a little broken tonight. Our lack of preparation and accountability, and urgency to start the game the way we finished was lacking."

Okposo returns to lineup for Sabres in Vegas

Johnson starts in net; Josefson day-to-day

by Jourdon LaBarber @jourdonlabarber / Sabres.com

LAS VEGAS - When the Buffalo Sabres took the ice for the first time ever at T-Mobile Arena in Vegas on Tuesday morning, the skate began with a stick tap. It was directed at Kyle Okposo, back on the ice with the team after missing the last two games with an illness.

Okposo will make his return to the lineup when the Sabres meet the Vegas Golden Knights for the first time in franchise history on Tuesday night.

"It hasn't been fun," Okposo said. "Basically sitting in a hotel room for two-and-a-half straight days, with just not good stuff. It's good to be feeling like a human being again, just kind of out and about and just resuming normal activities."
