Dec 26, 2019

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's current slump, in which they have lost four of their last five games, and the state of the team nearing the midway point of the season. What's behind forward Jeff Skinner's lack of production? The 40-goal scored has just one goal in December.
