Although it's only preseason, the Buffalo Sabres remain undefeated after a 5-2 destruction of the Carolina Hurricanes.
Johan Larsson and Brayden McNabb both had two goals apiece, while the Sabres also enjoyed goals from Cody Hodgson and Joel Armia. McNabb and Armia both also had an assist each in the game. Ryan Miller played the entire game, stopping 34 of 36 shots.
The Sabres are now 3-0 during the preseason, giving a young, rebuilding team something to build on as the regular season approaches. Buffalo has received plenty of criticism from their fans after tearing down a team that they expected to be in contention in the postseason. The strong start of the preseason will help calm the nerves of the younger players that will suit up in the regular season for Buffalo.
The Sabres will next host the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday at 7 pm. The Blue and Gold Carpet event is scheduled to begin at 4:30 pm before the teams hit the ice. The game will be televised on CBC and the NHL Network-US.
