The Buffalo Sabres have launched a new sales mechanism that offers fans a chance to purchase last-minute tickets to home games at First Niagara Center.

The "Sabres Standby" program will give fans an opportunity to buy from a limited quantity of tickets that, as part of the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, are otherwise reserved for players, referees and league officials. The Sabres said in a release that when these tickets go unused, the team will then make them available for purchase the day of the scheduled home game for fans who sign up here.

Starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, fans can sign up to be part of the queue for Friday's home game versus the Boston Bruins.
