Neutral site games in Sabres history

Recommended Posts

Regular season, of course.

Can you name the location and/or opponent (bonus points for the result)?

Hints: There have been eight games. The games came in three bunches separated by as little as one day and as much as two years. Four games in the first bunch, then two and two. Three different owners for each bunch.

My recollection is that they played a couple of games in Germany a few years ago.

Are you counting the outdoor games in the two Winter Classic's as "neutral"?

You're half right. And no.

Two in Paul Hamilton, Ontario.  And one in a then-former, now current NHL city, right?

You're also half right. The Sabres played the Kings in Berlin the second game of 2011-12. They played another Cali team the day before in another European city.

The Ducks in Prague?

They are especially delicious.  The Czechs prepare them with a seasoning unlike anything we have in the States, and then they sauté them so lightly.  It's such a tender dish.

I think Prague is right because Ehrhoff was from there or near...Right? My brain still only remembers the Kings though. I do remember winning both games and getting my hopes up. Fooled I was.

Ehrhoff is German.

I have no idea whether the Sabs played in Prague, but Ehrhoff is why the Sabres played at Adler Mannheim, I think?

You’re on a roll, tonight.  Angry Eleven has become Whimsical Eleven.

I hear Hal 9000, slightly buzzed.

Is Rochester a neutral site?

I've changed?

(I wouldn't consider Roch a neutral site, btw.)

St. Paul.  I suppose that technically Bloomington is a suburb of Minneapolis and not St. Paul, but I'm not being too pedantic here and I doubt that PA is.

Against the Islanders.   Don’t remember but Elliotte Friedman wrote about it after the game in Saskatchewan.  I guess the turnout was below expectations.

If the Sabres left, and the league decided that some weird regular season game would be played here, I wouldn't go.

Attendance was 8, 016, third-lowest of the six games held in 93-94 in the Target Center in Minneapolis (per Wikipedia).

Remember when Ville Leino opened the year with a goal but then it felt like he never scored again?
