Open Thread: Carolina Hurricanes vs. Buffalo Sabres (Preseason)

<em>The Sabres Host the Canes on Tuesday Night</em>

The Carolina Hurricanes come to town to face the Buffalo Sabres on home ice at 7 pm. Carolina beat the Columbus Blue Jackets in an 8-1 rout last night. Buffalo (3-1) is undefeated at home during 2022’s preseason. Let’s hope the Sabres can step up against a Canes team that’s bedeviled them in the past.

Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s matchup:
