The Buffalo Sabers will be back in action this Thursday night when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets at KeyBank Center.
The season hasn’t gone exactly the way fans hoped, and the team feels that way too, as Buffalo looks to an 11th straight year without a playoff appearance.
That’s not to say the season was a total failure; they’re much more entertaining than a year ago when fans were miserable watching the team under former head coach Ralph Krueger.
Listen to Chris Owen Overnights from 12:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. on 106.5 WYRK
The Sabers are playing a better brand of hockey and more fun in the offensive zone, with young talent like Tage Thompson, Dylan Cozens and Rasmus Dahlin. Head coach Don Granato is the right coach for a rebuilding team like Buffalo.
There’s something fans can’t wait to happen this season, and it’s only a month away.
In case you didn’t know, the Buffalo Sabers and Toronto Maple Leafs will be participating in the 2022 Heritage Classic.
The Heritage Classic is an outdoor game that usually pits two Canada-based teams against each other, but this year the Sabers will play in the game as the first US-based team to play in the outdoor game. The game will be played in Hamilton, Ontario at Tim Hortons Field.
The Heritage Classic does not take place every year, but every three years.
The match will be played on Sunday March 13 at 4 p.m.
This is the logo for this year’s Heritage Classic.
As for the jerseys the Leafs and Sabers will wear, that hasn’t been made public yet. Will they be different from what the teams are wearing now? Usually teams wear classic design jerseys for Winter and Heritage Classic outdoor games, but we still haven’t heard anything.
I think we should have the jersey unveilings in the next week or two.
This will be the Sabres’ third away game. They played the first Winter Classic on January 1, 2008 at what was then called Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and then the 2018 Winter Classic at Citi Field against the New York Rangers.
