Get ready to stay awake a little later tonight, as the Buffalo Sabres face the Calgary Flames at 9 p.m. EST. Planning to stay up to catch the game? Well, good. Here’s your guide on how to watch tonight’s game, the second of two meetings between the Sabres and Flames this season.
As usual, tonight’s game will be televised on MSG in Buffalo for Sabres fans to watch. Fans in the Buffalo area can also listen to the game live broadcast on WGR-550 AM radio. Sabres fans across the world can also listen to the broadcast via WGR’s website, linked above.
Fans in the Calgary area can catch the game on Sportsnet Calgary or on the radio on FAN 590.
Tonight’s game will also be available through NHL GameCenter Live for fans outside of the viewing markets. The GameCenter app is available for Android, Apple TV, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone/iPod, Playstation and Xbox among other devices. You can also download the app for free to keep track of scores, standings and statistics across the league – that portion is all free, with the option to ‘buy-in’ if you wish to watch games live.
And if you happen to be a Sabres fan living in the area…. why not grab yourself a ticket to tonight’s game and support the team in person?
Tonight has the potential to be Nathan Lieuwen’s first NHL game, so that’s certainly something I wouldn’t want to miss. How about Cody Hodgson, who has four points in four career games against the Flames – can he keep that streak alive? Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford are on their own streaks this season…. will those continue?
Don’t pass up the opportunity to see what former Sabres Paul Byron and Chris Butler can do. You can also get a look at some of the younger players on the Flames – including Markus Granlund, Sean Monahan, Max Reinhart, Tyler Wotherspoon and Joni Ortio – all under 23 years of age.
And can the Sabres actually SCORE tonight – something they weren’t able to accomplish on Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens? Let’s hope so.
Remember, tonight’s game is a late one – thank you, time zones. Puck drop is set for 9 p.m. EST. at the Saddledome.
