‘The cross-Atlantic journey starts Saturday, a day after the Sabres close their NHL preseason at Washington. After a brief stop home, the Sabres will fly to Mannheim, Germany, where they will play an exhibition game against the city’s pro team Adler on Tuesday. Then it’s off to Helsinki, Finland, where Buffalo will open the season against Anaheim on Oct. 7, followed by a game against Los Angeles in Berlin a day later.’
