Sabres put in regulars and win a preseason game

The Sabres had their first home preseason game of the year (complete with a red carpet). They used most of their regulars in this game, with Miller in goal, and goals scored by Roy, Gaustad, and Kotalik. Afinogenov looked good as well, with an assist on all three goals.

Kaleta and Rivet both played very physical games and showed a tougher side for the team. Having a defenseman who is a physical presence will be a bit of a change for the Sabres, but certainly a welcome one. Numminen was the captain for the game with Gaustad and Rivet both being the alternates. More on the game from Mike Harrington.

The Sabres play another home preseason game tonight against Minnesota.
