Sabres fire coach Krueger while in midst of 12-game skid

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres have fired coach Ralph Krueger less than two years into his tenure and with the free-falling team in the midst of a 0-10-2 skid. The Sabres made the move the morning after a 3-2 loss at New Jersey against a Devils team that snapped an 11-game home winless skid. The team did not say who would take over for Krueger except to say first-year general manager Kevyn Adams would speak later Wednesday.
