Instead of their usual 11:30 a.m. practice time, the Sabres won't skate today until 2:45 in First Niagara Center to allow players to get back into town after the long all-star break. Then they'll jet to Montreal for Tuesday night's game against the Canadiens. Luke Adam has already tweeted that he's heading right from Ottawa to Montreal, and I assume Jason Pominville is doing likewise.
The late practice times means 1) later-than-normal post-practice updates here on The Edge and 2) a change in our normal 3 p.m. On the Beat chat.
So for this week, join me here at 1 p.m. to talk all things Sabres heading into Tuesday night's game. You want to talk Ted Black's pronouncement he's not wedded to a particular core (hmmm), the all-star game, buyers or sellers or anything else, this is the place to be.
On The Sabres Beat chat, today at 1.
