Sabretooth visited the Winging It! Buffalo Style studio to spread the word about a very special weekend planned at First Niagara Center. When the Sabres take on the Edmonton Oilers on Friday, there will be a sea of lavender in the stands. That’s because it’s Hockey Fights Cancer Night at the Arena, presented by ECMC. New Era Cap Company donated “RJ” hats that will be for sale, in honor of or Rick Jeanneret and his fight against cancer. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the cancer care and research. Before the game, you can download an “I am fighting for” placard, to print out and fill out in honor of anyone you know that is battling cancer.
Saturday night will be Military Appreciation Night at the arena for the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. There will be a special pregame ceremony on the ice before puck drop to honor our men and women in military service.
