Behind The Bench: Sabres end October a surprising success

Oct 31, 2019

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe takes stock of the team's successful first month, 13 games in which they have far exceeded expectations under new head coach Ralph Krueger. Is this a team fans can believe in and will those fans start to fill KeyBank Center if that success continues? Is their condensed schedule, ahead of next week's trip to Sweden, catching up to them? And what did former coach Phil Housley, who was back in town Monday with the Arizona Coyotes, have to say about his time in Buffalo?
