Dammit this is Hockey Heaven… and there WILL be Sabres hockey! (Even if we have to make it up ourselves.)
The NHL “powers-that-be” have decided to take “real” hockey away from the fans, but TrendingBuffalo.com and Oogie Games have teamed up to bring you #SabreSim2012.
We’re going to simulate each game of the Buffalo Sabres 2012-13 season using EASports NHL13 and post the results, game recap, video highlights, stats, post-game commentary, and more on each originally scheduled game night. We’ll even keep tabs on what else is going on around the rest of NHL.
TrendingBuffalo.com will be the home for all game reports and we’ll tag all related tweets with #SabreSim2012.
The show will go on. Look for the Pittsburgh at Buffalo game results Saturday night.
