BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Sabres have fired coach Lindy Ruff as a result of the team's inconsistent start to the season.
The announcement was made on the team's Twitter account and confirmed by Sabres spokesman Michael Gilbert on Wednesday. Ruff was relieved of his duties shortly after the team held a 90-minute practice, and a day after the Sabres were booed several times by their home fans during a 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.
The Sabres (6-10-1) have gone 4-10-1 since opening the season winning their first two games.
With a 532-400-151 record, Ruff was the team's winningest coach.
