It's been nearly 35 months since the Sabres played a playoff game -- May 19, 2007 to be exact -- and the wait is over. Sabres-Bruins Game One is tonight in HSBC Arena and it's a huge day in The News, online and here at ye olde Sabres Edge blog. Be sure to pick up your print edition, complete with an eight-page preview section and a full-page Paul Gaustad photo. Plenty of good reads:
