Buffalo Sabres And Roswell Park Are Teaming Up For Hockey Fights Cancer

The Buffalo Sabres will square off against the Columbus Blue Jackets night at First Niagara Center, but there's another fight going on in a special way during the game.

It's Hockey Fights Cancer night in Buffalo, as part of the NHL's national Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. And Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) is teaming up with the Sabres to raise needed funds for cancer research and patient programs.

Special autographed New Era hats will be sold in the arena, as well as Ryan Miller Sockey Caps being sold on Roswell Park's website. Plus everyone - no matter where you are watching the game - is urged to text CURE to 501501 to make a $5 text donation during or after the game.

The Sabres and Roswell Park are hoping it all adds up to a cure.
