Hockey has officially returned to WNY.
With the NHL preseason well underway, the Buffalo Sabres are enjoying a 2-0 start to the 2013-2014 season with out-of-town wins against Montreal and Columbus as of Wednesday afternoon. The Sabres will hold home-ice for the next two games, bringing fan excitement back to First Niagara Center.
If there is one preseason game you don’t want to miss it’s this Saturday.
The Buffalo Sabres will once again roll out the blue and gold carpet at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, inviting fans to welcome the team back to the area before their 7 p.m. game.
Fans will be able to meet their favorite players, take photos and get autographs while the guys walk the blue and gold carpet.
This event is free to the public and parking is available in the surrounding area lots for attendees.
According to the team, “The players will be arriving in cars donated by Northtown Automotive Group and will be dropped off in the plaza throughout the event.
Sabres broadcasters Brian Duff and Danny Gare will host the event, providing interviews with the players as they arrive at the arena.”
