Preseason schedule includes 3 home games

By Mike Harrington

Remember training camp? Preseason games?

They'll be back in September for the Buffalo Sabres and the rest of the NHL. Wiped from the slate last year because of the lockout, the teams are returning to their usual calendar for the 2013-14 season.

The Sabres have announced their preseason schedule, a seven-game slate that includes three contests in First Niagara Center -- Sept. 19 vs. Carolina, Sept. 21 vs. Toronto and Sept. 25 vs. Columbus.

The preseason opens on the road with games Sept. 15 at Montreal and Sept. 17 at Columbus. There are also road games Sept. 22 at Toronto and the finale, Sept. 27 at Carolina. All games, home and away, are at 7 p.m.

The regular season schedule remains tied up in discussions over whether the NHL will participate in the Sochi Olympics, necessitating a two-week break in February like the teams have had in previous Olympic years. The scuttlebutt continues to be July 17, the day after the MLB All-Star Game, will be schedule release day.
