Gerbe scores in preseason loss

Buffalo lost their second straight preseason game. Being preseason the big news is not the loss, but rather a goal by Nathan Gerbe. After having such a great year last season for NCAA Boston, Gerbe has a legitimate shot at winning rookie of the year if he can only make the team. Gerbe is an explosive talent, but is far back on a roster that is stuffed with forwards.

This pre-season game was a special event held in Glace de Roberval, a small town in Quebec, that won the right to host the game as part of a "Hockeyville contest". The arena the game took place in had only 1,237 seats, but drew a crowd of an additional 11,000 to watch on screens out side of the stadium.
