Matt Moulson

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's waiving of veteran Matt Moulson, its acquisition of Stanley Cup-winning forward Scott Wilson and Tuesday's win in Colorado, where the last-place Sabres snapped a four-game losing streak.


The Buffalo Sabres (1-2-2) completed a four-game road trip Thursday with a gut-wrenching loss in Philadelphia. The result wasn't unlike many games last season, where the team failed to close out games in which they had a lead. Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about that and the continuing resurgence of forward Matt Moulson on this week's Behind The Bench.


Another key injury has hit the Buffalo Sabres early in the 2016-17 campaign. Just days after star forward Jack Eichel went down, Evander Kane suffered an injury in the season opener that will sideline him for several weeks. Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about that and the team's first three games on this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench.


On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's difficulty winning shootouts, the end of Matt Moulson's long goalless streak, the play of prospect Justin Bailey and forward Evander Kane's troubling recent transgression.
