Travel delays strike Sabres

BERLIN -- Greetings from Germany ... finally.

The Sabres landed in Berlin just before 3 a.m. today, two hours past their expected arrival following Friday's 4-1 victory over Anaheim in Helsinki, Finland. The team's departure was delayed by baggage problems, and the Sabres didn't go airborne in Finland until 1:50 a.m., which was 12:50 in Germany.

The two-hour flight touched down at 2:50 a.m. German time, and with another half-hour tacked on for unloading luggage, the buses didn't get rolling until 3:20 a.m. The traveling party arrived at the downtown hotel at 3:50 in the morning, just 16 hours before their 8 p.m. faceoff with Los Angeles.
