Rivet calls players only meeting, topic is secret


As the Sabres prepare to take on the Hurricanes for the second time in two weeks, captain Craig Rivet calls a players only meeting at center ice after practice.  It’s just what the team needs from its veteran captain.

The topic wasn’t revealed, and Rivet laughed it off as a discussion about the team dinner, but it doesn’t take a rocket science to figure out the topic of discussion was probably the last time these teams met, at HSBC arena on February 15th, a game the Hurricanes dominated.

The Sabres were extremely flat, and the Hurricanes benefited from some great play by Eric Staal.  Staal opened the scoring up with a great play on a Jochen Hecht clearing attempt.

The game got no better for Buffalo, who fell 3-0.
