There are still tickets left if people are looking, you can even buy 7 tickets all together in section 324 right now $66/ticket

Pyro Kinesis 01-19-2013 10:19 PM

So glad this is on NBC. After this I'll have to find... other methods... to watch these games.

No idea how it isn't sold out yet, considering there are only around 10k or so tickets left for the entire season.

Stockey 01-19-2013 10:40 PM

The game is sold out.

Edit: I stand corrected.... That's weird I thought they said it was sold out before tickets became available to the public.

ZZamboni 01-19-2013 10:50 PM

A nice season opener GDT Woodhouse :5:




Sabres win 3-1

Hodgson, Ennis, or Myers with a goal

Tim Murray 01-19-2013 10:53 PM

It's likely seats unused by the sabres/flyers allotment

Imlach a cup 01-19-2013 10:54 PM

Welcome to secondary ticket market. My loins are all a quiver. Was pumped to see the first real GDT of the season.

Layne Staley 01-19-2013 10:55 PM

3-2 Sabres in regulation.

Vanek with game winner.

Grigorenko Prediction: 1 assist, +1, 14:57 ToI.

If Leino can't go and Ellis has to dress I hope they let Ellis center the 4th line and move Hecht to the LW on Grigorenkos line instead of plugging Ellis in that spot.

Silence Of The Plams 01-19-2013 11:02 PM

Gonna be in my favorite jersey I own, my Kaleta one. :) Will talk to you guys tomorrow!! Make sure to post chat, and people going to the game, post pics here after :nod:

Dreakon 01-19-2013 11:08 PM

Is there a season opener GDT for last season?

I'm super curious to see how different the lineup looks. My guess is very.

drinking bleach irl 01-19-2013 11:12 PM

They could win thirty.
They could miss the playoffs too.
Well, here goes nothing.

Timbo Slice 01-19-2013 11:23 PM

OMG. I feel like I used to feel on Christmas Eve. So freaking excited!

ask and you shall receive


Vanek Adam Pominville
Gerbe Roy Stafford
Ennis Leino Boyes
McCormick Gaustad Kaleta

Regehr Myers
Leopold Ehrhoff
Gragnani Sekera

Hecht was on the IR and most people assumed he would take Adam's spot when get got healthy.
Weber was a healthy scratch and I'm assuming the other scratch was Ellis.

yeah, we've changed a couple of things at forward. Even with the injuries I think our top 3 lines are better. Only place I think we're worse is 4th line center

Taelin 01-20-2013 01:45 AM

I have work tomorrow, but I have this game on PVR for later viewing. Go Sabres!

Salzig 01-20-2013 04:52 AM
