Game Thread: Preseason Finale

Sabres, Red Wings drop the puck at 3 p.m.

The Buffalo Sabres look to finish the preseason on a high note after dropping four consecutive games, as they host the Detroit Red Wings for a Saturday matinee. The Sabres and Red Wings previously met on September 30, when Buffalo fell 6-2 in a cringeworthy effort. After Buffalo won their first preseason game (a 5-4 victory over Columbus), they’ve lost four in a row heading into today’s game.
