As mentioned, the Buffalo Sabres (along with the rest of the league) have announced their schedule, and it’s a doozy (click here for the full sched). After the road opener in Ottawa, the next 4 games are home against some solid opponents. The season goes loopy after that, though. There are TWENTY-TWO back to back games, most of which involve travel (only 4 are both home games, I read from Chris at the Roost, IIRC). A home game against Boston in the middle of the usual west coast swing. A seven game roadie at the beginning of March (playoff positioning on the line). Crazy.
Buffalo should be on National TV a good bit, as they are frequently playing US teams on the typical Versus Monday and Tuesday timeslots. For NBC, I bet the Saturday March 5 Sabres/Flyers game ends up there, with a few other possibilities. I have to look it over more later, to see if there’s a good road trip game for me and the boy, and look at what games I may try to attend.
