Buffalo Sabres Scrimmage or Seether? Low-Cost Jacktivities for a Fun Thursday Night
The Buffalo Sabres are holding a Blue and Gold Scrimmage at First Niagara Center this evening, featuring some of the Sabres best young prospects, including new fan favorites Marcus Foligno, Cody Hodgson and Brayden McNabb.
Grigorenko and Girgenson have been paired with last year’s first-round draft pick Joel Armia duing camp. All three are highly regarded, with Grigorenko having the best chance to make the team this season. Some other players to watch include 2010 first rounder Mark Pysyk and second-year players Corey Tropp and Luke Adam. The players will also compete in a shootout contest, and penalty shots will be awarded instead of man-advantages. Tickets to the scrimmage are $10.
It’s going to be busy at the waterfront tonight because alternative rockers Seether are playing a free show at Canalside. The band is best known for their song “Broken,” a duet with Evanesence lead singer Amy Lee, but the song “Fake It” from their recent album Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces has done well for the band also.
I’ve gotta admit though, I always confuse Seether, Chevelle and Hinder. They’re kissing cousins twice removed from Nickelback. But who’s complaining? The show is free, and the beer is cheap.
