'Hockey Weekend in America' starts Friday

The Sabres host Washington on Sunday afternoon as part of "Hockey Weekend in America," and the festivities kick off Friday.

USA Hockey and the Sabres are encouraging fans to wear their favorite jersey to school, work and the game against St. Louis. Fans can also get $20 off 300 Level II seats (normally $60) for the game by entering "USA Hockey" as the password at Tickets.com or Sabres.com.

On Saturday, more than 200 rinks across the nation will host Try Hockey for Free Clinics. Children can participate locally at Jamestown Savings Bank Arena (7-8:30 a.m.); Village Sports in Fairport (9-11 a.m.); and the Northtown Center in Amherst (1-2:50 p.m.).
