The second of seven scheduled preseason games for the Sabres goes by the wayside tonight. The Bruins were supposed to come to Buffalo and First Niagara Center for the first puck drop of the season downtown.
Because a bunch of rich guys can't figure out how to split $3.3 billion per year, it won't happen. So we started a new feature this week: Who's hurting tonight because of the lockout?
*It's the gray jacket security guards who worked the wrestling event Tuesday night in the arena and pointed people to their sections and directed them to the correct exits.
*It's the smiling woman at the concession stand who sold my son a drink and won't get paid again tonight.
*It's the ladies at the beer kiosk who sold me a Bud and appreciated the tip because they won't be getting many now.
*It's the guy who would earn money sweeping the aisles after the game.
*It's the group of people who would put up and take down the plexiglass for the boards.
Who's not hurting? The owners and players who have hardly bothered to try and get the games started.
