Behind The Bench: Sabres' tailspin leading to tough questions


On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about a good effort this week against Nashville, which followed two ugly games last weekend that had many wondering if the team has quit on coach Phil Housley. Forward Jeff Skinner could reach the 40-goal mark in the final two games, but given the Sabres' dreadful second half, is the pending free agent's presumed (by many) re-signing with the team in jeopardy? And Bill recently caught up with former Sabres goalie Daren Puppa, who recently put on the pads again for the first time in a long time.
