Sabres' Eric Comrie: Ready to go

Sabres' Eric Comrie: Week-to-week with injury
Comrie (lower body) is week-to-week, per Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic.
It's unclear when Comrie, who allowed 10 goals on 49 shots in his last start, suffered the injury, but it appears he'll be sidelined for a while. The 27-year-old netminder is 8-9-0 with an .877 save percentage this season. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and Craig Anderson will share goaltending duties while Comrie is out.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Eric Comrie: Makes wrong sort of history
Comrie stopped 39 shots in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Stars.
Buffalo kept things semi-close until the third period, when four straight Dallas goals in a span of three minutes and three seconds blew open a 5-3 contest. Comrie became just the second netminder in Sabres franchise history to cough up double-digit goals, and his 10 set a record for a home game. The 27-year-old had won his prior four starts dating back to Jan. 26, but with a 3.95 GAA and .877 save percentage on the season, this brutal outing might encourage the team to end its three-goalie experiment and give Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and Craig Anderson more work....

Sabres' Eric Comrie: Wins fourth straight start
Comrie turned aside 33 shots in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
The 27-year-old continues to be used sparingly in Buffalo's three-goalie rotation, but Comrie has enjoyed some impressive offensive support when he is in the crease. He's won four straight starts dating back to Jan. 26, allowing 13 goals with an .892 save percentage during that time but watching the Sabres light the lamp 21 times. That makes him an intriguing DFS option when he gets the call, but tough to roster in season-long fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Eric Comrie: Facing Lightning
Comrie will be in the home crease versus Tampa Bay on Saturday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Comrie has won his his last three starts spanning five-plus weeks, as Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and Craig Anderson have been handling most of the netminding duties for the Sabres.

Sabres' Eric Comrie: Wins in Anaheim
Comrie stopped 19 of 22 shots in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Ducks.
Comrie made his first appearance since Jan. 26, and he was able to overcome a lackluster effort thanks to the Sabres' strong offense. The 27-year-old has fallen to third on the goaltending depth chart behind Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and Craig Anderson, and that crowded crease isn't doing Comrie any favors. He's now at 6-8-0 with a 3.50 GAA and an .883 save percentage through 14 starts.... See More ... See Less

Comrie saved 19 of 21 shots in a 3-2 win against the Jets on Thursday.
Victor Olofsson scored at 10:30 of the third period to put the Sabres up 3-0, but Comrie created some late tension by surrendering two goals in the final 4:46 of the contest.

Comrie was playing for the first time since Jan. 10, when he allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 4-3 loss to Seattle.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Eric Comrie: Gets rare start
Comrie will patrol the crease against the Jets on the road Thursday, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Comrie will be making just his third start in the team's last 33 contests, having lost both prior outings while giving up six goals on 46 shots. With how infrequently the Sabres have utilized Comrie this season, it's a little surprising that he hasn't been sent down to the minors. Unless he can earn some more opportunities, Comrie figures to remain a relative non-factor in fantasy contests moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Eric Comrie: Expected to be in goal Tuesday
Comrie (lower body) will start at home against Seattle on Tuesday, per Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News.
Comrie, who was activated off the injured reserve list Monday, will start in the NHL for the first time since Nov. 16. He's 4-7-0 with a 3.62 GAA and .887 save percentage in 11 contests this season. Comrie did take part in an AHL conditioning stint that ended Saturday, and he posted a 3.03 GAA and .898 save percentage in three contests with Rochester over that span. Buffalo did consider calling up Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen from the AHL and having him start Tuesday, but that idea was scrapped after he woke up with an illness, Sabres GM Kevyn Adams said on The Jeff Marek Show. Seattle has the third-best offense with 3.67 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Eric Comrie: Takes loss in return
Comrie made 18 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Kraken.
Seeing his first NHL action since Nov. 16 after recovering from a lower-body injury, Comrie was handed early 1-0 and 2-1 leads but couldn't make them hold up despite Buffalo's efforts to reduce the volume of rubber he faced -- the Sabres blocked 13 shots in front of the netminder. Comrie may have a short window in which to regain his form, however, as Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen had won six straight starts prior to being sent down to AHL Rochester on Monday.... See More ... See Less
