Buffalo Sabres Playoff Schedule
The Buffalo Sabres are prepared to do whatever it takes to make the postseason
in 2014-15. The Sabres have a roster that has plenty of talent, it's just about figuring out how to implement that talent
on the ice and use it to net some victories. The Sabres had a tough go of it in 2013-14, finishing with the least points in
the National Hockey League, but they're prepared to turn things around this time and make a run at the postseason. The Sabres
call the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference home, and they've always got some stiff competition for the top spots
in the divisional standings. The Sabres are looking to rise in the ranks in 2014-15, but they're going to have to play well
to get it done. If they can, they're sure to have some incredible matchups in the postseason.
The Sabres will be faced
with taking on some of the best teams in the NHL in the postseason if they can make it this time around. Last year the Boston
Bruins notched the best record in the division, and the Tampa Bay Lightning notched the second-best mark in the Atlantic.
These teams will have a good shot at returning to the postseason. In the Metropolitan Division, the other division in the
Eastern Conference, the Pittsburgh Penguins posted the best record, but it was the New York Rangers that caught fire in the
playoffs are were able to win the Conference Championship. These teams could again be the most formidable foes that could
face off with the Sabres in the playoffs, and the Sabres will have to give it their all to net enough wins to take home a
series or two. Be there in the stands the next time the Sabres make the playoffs.
Buffalo Sabres History
Buffalo Sabres have been an integral part of the NHL since first joining the league in 1970. The team achieved early success
with their famous French Connection line that consisted of Rick Martin, Gilbert Perreault, and René Robert. Those three
helped guide the Sabres to their first of two Stanley Cup Finals appearances in 1975 where they lost to the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Sabres always seem to be a threat to go deep into the playoffs and challenge for a Stanley Cup, though the big trophy
has eluded them so far. The Sabres have come close to taking down the Cup, most recently in a classic series against the Dallas
Stars in 1999 - a series that is remembered on both sides as one of the most intense Finals match ups ever. The Sabres have
had some struggles in recent years but appear to be headed back towards their former glory.
