While the Sabres battle the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night, Hockey fans can do their part in the fight against cancer.



Thursday's game against Columbus at the First Niagara Center is "Hockey Fights Cancer night in Buffalo". It's a part of the NHL's national initiative and will raise money for cancer research right here in Buffalo at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.



The Sabres will be selling special autographed hats donated by New Era at the First Niagara Center with proceeds going to the program. Fans can also text CURE to 501501 to make a $5 text donation before during and after the game.



It's a great program for a great cause. If you get a chance either at the game, or watching the game at home.. donate.
