The Buffalo Sabres preseason continues tonight as they take on the Carolina Hurricanes for the first of two contests. The Sabres lost their preseason opener to Washington by a score of 1-0 as their youthful lineup couldn't generate much offense.

Tonight the lineup will feature more veterans, and while we don't know the exact lineup as of this writing (6am) Sabres.com did reveal that Sam Reinhart will play again, while Jhonas Enroth will get the start in net. Reinhart looked like a rookie in his preseason debut, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but seemed to grow more comfortable as the game went on. If he continue that trend tonight, it would be another step towards convincing the coaching staff that he belongs in the NHL.

The game won't be broadcast on TV, but you can follow along with the radio broadcast on WGR.
