BUFFALO, NY ( Business First ) Buffalo Sabres fans who wish to see the slumping hockey team try and get back on the winning track can again do so Tuesday night at First Niagara Center.
Team officials will host another viewing party for fans who may be caught in a business dispute between Time Warner Cable and MSG Network. Since Jan. 1, the Sabres have been blacked out on cable TV as the two broadcast entities squabble over a new contract.
More than 5,000 fans showed up at First Niagara Center to watch the Sabres play the Carolina Hurricanes game on Jan. 6. The team said a greater number of concession stands will be open and more staff will be available at Tuesday's game between the Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs from the Air Canada Centre, which begins just after 7 p.m.
Arena doors will again open at 6 p.m. and fans will be able to watch the game on the high-definition video board, which will be lowered to a comfortable viewing height. Admission and parking in the arena parking ramp will be free to all fans.
