*** UPDATE ***

The Buffalo Sabres today announced they will host a “Party in the Plaza” two hours prior to the start of each home playoff game during the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs. This year’s parties will be bigger and better than ever -- including the addition of a 40’ x 120’ tent that will guarantee each party happening rain or shine; and extended hours that will allow fans without tickets to stick around and watch the game on a big screen TV.

The pre-game festivities get underway at 5 p.m. on Thursday before the start of Game One, and 11 a.m. on Saturday prior to Game Two outside HSBC Arena, in the Plaza area located near Perry and Illinois St. Fans can enjoy live music from the Strictly Hip, along with concession food and drink available for purchase throughout the night. There will be appearances from special Sabres guests and Sabretooth.

But the party doesn’t stop when the game ends! There will be drinks available for purchase after the game, along with music and coverage of the Lexus Shootout post-game show on the big screen.

Each party will take place rain or shine with free admission, as a game ticket will not be required for entrance to the party.

Tickets for Buffalo’s four potential home games in the first round of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs are now on sale at the HSBC Arena Box Office, all outlets in Tops Markets, online at, or charge by phone at 1-888-223-6000.
