Game Preview: Islanders at Sabres (

Sabres lose five players and game; Hackett carried off on stretcher

‘While Hackett’s injury was the most serious, it was far from the only one. Four other Sabres left the penultimate game – defenseman Christian Ehrhoff (concussion) and forwards Chris Stewart (ankle), Brian Flynn (lower body) and Matt D’Agostini (lower body). None will be available for today’s season finale against the New York Islanders in First Niagara Center.’

Scott’s history brings more misconducts

‘“Some guys are labeled for certain things, and they want to get that out of the game,” Buffalo coach Ted Nolan said in TD Garden. “I understand that, but sometimes he’s picked on unfairly.”’

Season filled with turmoil about to end for reeling Sabres

‘Eleven players are injured right now. Four goalies have gone down in the last 16 games.’

Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray ‘open for business’ when it comes to dealing players

Boston 4, Buffalo 1

‘Cody Hodgson scored the lone goal for the Sabres, who will host the New York Islanders on Sunday to close the disastrous 2013-14 season. Buffalo, which has lost six in a row, will finish with the worst record in the NHL.’

‘LW Ville Leino of Buffalo, who made $4 million this season and still has $11 million owed over the next three years, moved a step closer to a goal-less season as a healthy scratch. He will likely be a compliance buyout during the offseason.’

Sabres Decimated By Injuries in 4-1 Loss in Boston
