Buffalo finishes the preseason in Detroit

Buffalo Sabres
Buffalo finished its preseason schedule with a 3-0 loss to the Red Wings. The game was much closer then the score indicates though, as the final goal was an empty netter, and Roy put one in the net, that didn't count only because the NHL doesn't use replay in the preseason. And seeing as how it doesn't really count there is no reason that they should.

Andrej Sekera got alot of playing time (lead the team) and looked good. He was only a minus one in the game for being on the ice for the empty netter. In less play time Sabres newcomer Craig Rivet also looked good, but was on the ice for all three goals against.

Buffalo's powerplay was also very poor in this game going zero for eleven. Sometimes the couldn't even get the puck in the zone, other times Ty Conklin played well, and earned himself the shutout.
