"We got here around 6 a.m.," two young Dundasians told NHL.com -- they preferred to remain nameless as they had probably skipped school the morning of the game. "It was definitely worth it, I'll catch pneumonia for the Sabres."
Hundreds came out to greet the Sabres and the Senators upon their arrival and thousands returned to the pre-game pep rally. While the rain became heavier by game time, several hundred still weathered the storm to catch the action on the big screen. Most of those that remained were families, whose kids were not going to let their parents drag them away from this special event.
