Regehr ready for emotions of facing former team

Robyn Regehr hopes all the jitters disappear before the puck even drops.

The Sabres defenseman, who spent the previous 11 seasons in Calgary, will face the Flames for the first time tonight in First Niagara Center. There's no doubt it will be an interesting experience for him.

"I’m looking forward to this game, and I have been for a long time," Regehr said this morning. "As for emotions, I’m not sure what to expect because this is the first go-round with this. What I’m hoping for is maybe I can get through some of that stuff in warm-up. You see all those guys out there in the jersey you wore for a long time over there, but once the game hits and you start getting involved and playing, hopefully it’s just another game where you go out there and have a job to do and you go out there and do it."

More of Regehr's chat is below.
