Buffalo Sabres vs Detroit Red Wings takes place on Wednesday night as the NHL 2013 season kicks off. The game will start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Red Wings will be making their debut in the Eastern Conference, and will be looking to get back on the ice after a long summer offseason.
Meanwhile the Sabres will be looking to win their third straight season opener and get things off to a bright start so that they can look forward with optimism on the season.
The Sabres will be hoping to improve on their showing last season. They were unable to make the postseason last season, and they will want to ensure they get things off to a solid start to give themselves the best shot at pushing for a playoff spot.
The Red Wings meanwhile had a great season last year, and went far before finally succumbing to eventual Stanley Cup Champions the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round of the playoffs.
Ryan Miller will be a big player for the Buffalo Sabres tonight, and if he can keep the Red Wings out it would give his team mates a good platform to steal the win tonight.
Meanwhile for the Detroit Red Wings Henrik Zetterberg will be an important player, and the Red Wings will be hoping their forward can make good penetration through the Sabres defense and get on the scoreboard.
