Behind The Bench: Housley rips Sabres following latest loss

Jan 11, 2018

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about some strong words from head coach Phil Housley following Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, the team's fifth straight defeat. Also, a scuffle between two players at practice and a call-up for one of the Sabres' best prospects.

In other Sabres news late Wednesday, star forward Jack Eichel was named to his first NHL All-Star Game. Eichel, who has 17 goals and 39 points this season, is the team's lone representative in the game, which will be played Jan. 28 in Tampa, Florida.
