The Buffalo Sabres are finally kicking off their first of three games this season against the Carolina Hurricanes after the snow vortex forced the first match to be postponed till February 25th. This will be the first time the Buffalo Sabres face-off against former Sabre, Nathan Gerbe who joined the Hurricanes after Darcy Regier bought him out last season.
Gerbe scored a highlight reel goal last night and if he was still on the Sabres he’d be tied for the scoring lead alongside Cody Hodgson and Tyler Ennis. However we won’t get into those politics, we’ll just stick to tonight’s match up.
Hopefully Nathan Gerbe doesn’t pull a move like that tonight against his former team and Ryan Miller.

When: Today January 23rd, at 7:00PM
