September 13, 2019 - 12:11 PM ET

@boosbuzzsabres It seems like a classic wash-rinse-repeat September day in Buffalo as on-ice training camp sessions begin for the Sabres. Five years ago it was Stanley Cup-winning head coach Dan Bylsma leading practice after taking over for Ted Nolan, who coached the Sabres through most of thei...
