Checking out the competition: Buffalo Sabres

Heeeeyyyyy it’s the Flyers and the Buff’lo Sab-rays

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Did you expect the Buffalo Sabres to be a top-of-the-conference team a quarter of the way through the season? I sure didn’t, but here we are! The Flyers will spend Thanksgiving Eve in Buffalo facing off against Jack Eichel and the Buffalo Sabres. We had a nice little chat with Chad DeDominicis from Die By The Blade to find out what to expect from our first meeting with the other other New York team. You’ll hear fun stuff like:

  • Moving on from Ryan O’Reilly
  • Rasmus Dahlin and high expectations
  • The criminally underrated Jack Eichel
  • The pros of rebuilding on the fly
  • Relatively unexpected early season success for the Sabres

Tonight’s game is a rare 730pm start on the NBC Sports Network on the television and 97.5 on the radio.
