More chances to see the Pirates

Sabres fans interested in following the Portland Pirates are going to have more chances during the 2009-10 season than they did last year, Portland's first with Buffalo. The Pirates have announced they'll play two games in HSBC Arena during the upcoming season and the AHL opponents rotation announced Tuesday gives Buffalo fans plenty of extra chances to see Sabres farmhands.

Portland will play two games in Rochester and one game in Syracuse after visiting neither place last year. If you're looking for driveable games a little farther away, there's also one Portland visit to Binghamton, two to Albany and one to Glens Falls. 

As for HSBC dates, Nov. 12 has already been penciled in for a Pirates visit and a second-half date has yet to be announced. The opponents have not been determined. Portland's game here in February against Albany drew a crowd 11,144.
