Regular Season Schedule Released
With the Stanley Cup Finals ending just a bit ago in mid June, the 2012-2013 NHL regular season schedule has been released. The season will start a bit later this year, with Buffalo playing it’s final preseason game on October 6th vs. Columbus.
The Buffalo Sabres regular season will begin on October 13th when it hosts the Penguins. That’s a Saturday game and the first of a three game homestand. The Sabres will host the Red Wings and Rangers.
The Sabres will close out the season hosting the Bruins on Saturday, April 13th.
The Sabres will have six home and home series. Those are with New Jersey (Oct. 24th and 26th), Philadelphia (Nov. 16th and 17th), Montreal (Dec. 6th and 8th), Montreal (Dec 15th and 17th), Boston (Feb. 6th and 8th), and Ottawa (Feb 10th and 12th).
The Sabres longest road trip is four games, which they will do twice. The longest homestand is also four games.
However, from February 18th to March 28th the Sabres play 18 games, 13 of which are on the road.
