Latest Sabres

Sabres fans really aren't that demanding. Give them effort, give them goals, maybe give them a win once in a while and KeyBank Center can become fun.

"The power of rock and the majesty of classical!" radio ads thunder, over the booming of the TSO's signature number, Pachelbel's Cannon. Did we say cannon? We meant canon. It's easy to get confused.
