At the Sabres store Wednesday it wasn't crowded but everyone who was there was picking up new team gear after hearing the news that Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan are being hired back into the franchise.

LaFontaine as the President of Hockey Operations and Nolan as the Interim Head Coach.

Matt Lexner finally came to the First Niagara Center to pick up his season tickets.

"I didn't really want them until about five hours ago," said Lexner.

For Lexner and many other Buffalo Sabres fans the past couple of years have been brutal. But now they have a new sense of inspiration.
