The Amerks will face the Binghamton Senators at 7 p.m. in HarborCenter. Tickets for the game are $10, and the game will also be streamed live at

The Sabres have been fighting a two-year battle with the city of Rochester to upgrade Blue Cross Arena, a debate that started under former team President Ted Black and continued this spring under his replacement, Russ Brandon. The Sabres refused to host a preseason game in Rochester this year and are holding all of Amerks training camp in Buffalo.

Rochester will close its two-game preseason schedule Saturday in Binghamton. The regular season starts Oct. 14 when Hershey visits Rochester.

The Sabres, meanwhile, will return to practice at noon Thursday. Ryan O'Reilly suffered a minor injury during Wednesday's preseason loss to Carolina. Buffalo closes its exhibition schedule Friday in Ottawa.
