With the Buffalo Sabres set to kick off their second week of the new NHL season, it’s time to look back at the three stars from the first week of action. Despite the 0-3 start there has been some exciting action over the past week and some players have stepped up.
The Sabres began their regular season in Detroit on National television where they dropped a close 2-1 game. They then hosted the Senators at home, where they once again lost a close one-goal game. Finally they travelled to Pittsburgh and were soundly defeated 4-1 by a much superior Penguins team.
Tonight week two begins as the Sabres take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in search for their first win of the young season. Can the Sabres get an early jump on the Lightning and earn their first W? It’s a new slate this week, but for now a stick tap to the three stars from last week.
