The Buffalo Sabres are dead last in the Eastern Conference, and in an interesting development, Google is no longer respecting them as an NHL team.
Wednesday night, the Hockey Night In Canada Twitter account noticed that the Sabres’ Google search listing had them labeled as an American Hockey League team. Ouch.

You would assume that this is an innocent mistake, but the Sabres have been really, really bad this year. They have an Eastern Conference-worst eight standings points in their first 12 games of the season. Alex Ovechkin has more goals (10) than the Sabres have points. If not for the scuffling Oilers (7 standings points) and the unimaginably bad Arizona Coyotes (3), Buffalo would be in the cellar of the NHL.
As of 10:30 PM, the mistake was still showing when you search “Buffalo Sabres” in Google.
But maybe this is for the best. The Sabres already have no chance of winning the Stanley Cup this year, so they might as well try their hand at the Calder Cup.
