October 4, 2013: Sabres vs. Senators
Pretty tough call, picking the Sabres’ opening home game, right? Well, I didn’t say ALL of these would be tough.
There’s nothing like the buzz of a home opener, especially with so many questions in the air as the season opens. Plus, the match-up with the Senators is a nice divisional battle, and with the road to the playoffs containing 3 lanes reserved for the top 3 teams in the Atlantic Division, you better believe that every divisional match-up will be hotly contested next season.
Honorable mention: October 28, when the Dallas Stars and Lindy Ruff visit FNC for the first and only time all season.
