With training camp right around the corner it’s time to get excited about the Buffalo Sabres who we all know and love. Sure the recent Sabres haven’t given fans much to celebrate, but the team has a rich history filled with controversy and excitement. That’s why from today right through to the first regular season game, we’re going to be running Buffalo Sabres trivia. *Stick tap to Pucks of a Feather for the idea.*
Here’s how it will work; Every day, starting today through to the first game of the regular season there will be a Buffalo Sabres trivia question posted on the site. Some will be as easy as a shot on net, some will tough like the Sabres making the playoffs and some will contain two parts like the Darcy Regier and Lindy Ruff era that ran the Sabres.
In order to find the question you must check the SabreNoise site everyday for a new question and the answer to the previous question. Each time you answer a question correctly you be awarded points on a scale from 1 to 3. If it’s a one part question i.e. “Which position does Ryan Miller play” you’d only receive 1 point. If it’s a 2 part question i.e. “Which position does he play and which number does Miller wear? You must give both answers to receive any points.
You may post your answer to three different places; In the comment section of the trivia question’s post, tweet it to @HockeyLife30 or post on the SabreNoise Facebook page. Clear as mud? Good. Here’s your first question:
The Buffalo Sabres inaugural NHL season was 1970-1971. Name both the head coach and the captain of the Buffalo Sabres for their inaugural season. (2 points)
You have until Midnight Eastern Time on Friday September 6th to submit your answer.
