Posted September 20, 2018 05:22:27As a refresher on the Sabres preseason schedule:The Buffalo Sabres played three preseason games, starting with Friday night’s 4-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators at the MTS Centre.
It was a tough game for the Sabres as Ottawa outshot them 17-3 and outshot Buffalo 17-4.
But, the Sabres had a chance to win and outshoot Ottawa 15-6.
The Sabres scored two power-play goals, and had a power-save chance in the third period.
In overtime, a pair of power-plays by the Sabres helped pull the Sabres within one.
The Sabres went on to win that game 4-2, and the season opener.
As the Sabres were gearing up for their second preseason game, they got their second opportunity to win.
Saturday night’s 3-2 win over the Ottawa Capitals was a great start to the preseason schedule.
Buffalo played four preseason games and had to play all of them.
They had a great preseason schedule, and it showed with their win in Washington.
At home, the Buffalo Bills had a good preseason schedule as well.
On Friday night, they played two preseason games at the Buffalo Soldiers Ice Arena.
Forwards Nikita Zadorov and Evander Kane were both scoreless, and goalie Jake McCabe had a good showing.
This game was an early indication of the Sabres future, and they should have some success in their preseason.
Nikita Zborilov was one of Buffalo’s top players during the preseason.
He had a hat trick, including a goal in overtime, and scored a goal of his own in the second period.
Evander Kane had a decent preseason as well, but was quiet in his debut, notching one goal.
Tyler Ennis also scored, but he wasn’t very active in his first preseason game.
Zboriluov and Ennis have the chance to make the jump to the NHL this season, and hopefully have a similar season.
When Buffalo plays an NHL game, the team needs to score a lot of goals.
So, if the Sabres are going to get their preseason off to a great run, they need to put together a strong performance.
There’s no reason to believe that they won’t, and this will be an opportunity for Buffalo to prove that.
