Just four days after the team opened up training camp, the Buffalo Sabres found themselves on the ice Sunday night in Montreal for their preseason opener against the Canadiens.
In a back-and-forth affair that saw the teams trade goals throughout it came down to a shootout to determine who would be the victor in both squads’ preseason opener.
