The 7 p.m. game is the first of two Sabres/Maple Leafs contests to be broadcast by MSG this weekend. The second game, when Toronto visits Buffalo, will air at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
For Friday night’s broadcast, MSG will be using the Leafs TV broadcast via the NHL Network, while Saturday’s broadcast on MSG will come from CBC’s feed of coverage in Buffalo.
This weekend’s games will be the second and third Sabres games carried by MSG this preseason. MSG will also be the home to 70 regular season games for the Sabres in 2011-12. A full broadcast schedule of 2011-12 Sabres games will be released at a later date.
