Behind The Bench: Sabres fall to Ottawa, lose Ullmark to injury

behind_the_bench_1_3.jpg

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about an "embarrassing" loss to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday night, the first game of a make-or-break homestand for the team. If the loss wasn't bad enough, starting goalie Linus Ullmark will miss the next three to four weeks with a lower-body injury. Can Carter Hutton step up in his place and when might we see a start from Rochester Americans call-up Jonas Johansson? General Manager Jason Botterill is still looking for help at forward, but is it too late? And what impact did NBA legend Kobe Bryant have on players like Jack Eichel and Kyle Okposo?

You can read Bill Hoppe's articles at his Buffalo Hockey Beat website and at BuffaloNews.com. Follow him on Twitter at @BillHoppeNHL.
