Hard Foul Sports Podcast: Episode 34 with Guest Matthew Coller

matthew collerThis week on the podcast Mike and Evan are joined again by Matthew Coller of WGR550 Sports Radio in Buffalo and ESPN. The guys had an in-depth conversation about Bills and Sabres at this stage of their respective seasons. The rumors surrounding Steven Stamkos and what we thought of the ESPN documentary of the Super Bowl era Bills are also discussed. We also ponder the unthinkable: could the Sabres actually move Eichel in a Stamkos trade? The interview starts about 10 minutes into the show, first half is about the Sabres and we finish up with Bills talk.

Sabres: Coaches Challenges Are Taking Away From the Game

The only proper start for this write-up is an obligatory congratulations to Rasmus Ristolainen for his hat-trick recorded on December 10, 2015 against the Calgary Flames. A Buffalo blue-liner has not completed a hat-trick in over twenty years (Phil Housley 1987-88 season). Risto managed to notch all three goals in the short span of a single period of play (3rd).

The Sabres lost the game by a score of 3-4 after Sean Monahan was setup for the game-winner on a beautiful pass off of the stick of Johnny Gaudreau. It continues a trend of the Sabres losing to underperforming teams. That being said, Calgary deserves classification as a hot team, going 4-0-1 in their last five games and scoring over twenty goals total during that span. Continue reading

Boy does it feel good to write about this hockey team again. It was a heartbreaker over the weekend for only half of Buffalo’s professional sport spectrum. The Bills loss to the Kansas City Chiefs all but seals the fate of a team that currently holds the title of “longest playoff drought in professional sports”. Yes, as a big Buffalo guy it is very hard to hear that astounding fact.

On a more positive note the Buffalo Sabres finished up the month of November with a 4-1 victory against the Nashville Predators. The Preds shrugged off the Sabres only three nights before in a game that forced Buffalo fans to channel-swap between primetime hockey and Thursday Night Football. Continue reading
