The Sabres scored the only goal in the first period, but a shorty by Bonzai in the second, on top of a Sutherby even strength marker, tied it at two a piece heading into the third. There was a glimmer of hope when Jagr scored in the first three minutes of the third and the Caps held on for much of the frame, but Buffalo fought back with two lamp lighters with less than five minutes to go, ending the game to a tune of 4-3. There are no photos from this trip.
The Caps Road Crew will be traveling to Buffalo, New York to watch the Caps in action against the Sabres at the HSBC Arena on Saturday, December 7, 2002 at 7 pm.
The CRC will make arrangements for group tickets, however individual transportation (and lodging arrangements if desired) will be up to anyone attending.
Current plans- A contingent of the Crew will be driving up to Buffalo by car on Saturday, December 7. The Crew will meet up inside at the team store at the main entrance to the HSBC Arena at 6:00 pm. We’ll head inside by 6:20 pm for warmups and the 7 pm drop of the puck. It is likely that most of the Crew will be spending the night in Buffalo with a return to D.C. planned on Sunday.
And at some point while we’re in Buffalo, you know we’ll be hitting the Anchor Bar for the best wings around! If it’s good enough for Joe B. and the Locker…
Ticket requests must be placed ASAP to guarantee your tickets to sit with the CRC. Cost will be $80 per ticket.
