In addition, Buffalo's preseason finale against Pittsburgh on Saturday, September 30 at 7 p.m. will be televised on MSG.
MSG Network recently announced a 10-year extension to telecast Sabres games, in which MSG will own the exclusive local rights to telecast the team's games. The deal will start after the 2006-07 season, and run through the 2016-17 season.
Rick Jeanneret and Jim Lorentz return to call the action for all MSG telecasts. Currently the longest-tenured broadcaster in hockey, the 2006-07 season marks Jeanneret's 35th year with the Sabres. Lorentz has been part of the Sabres broadcast crew since the 1992-93 season.
Buffalo Sabres hockey on MSG is directed by Eric Grossman and produced by Joe Pinter.
Once again this season, The Shootout can be seen following every Sabres telecast on MSG. Host Kevin Sylvester will be joined by Rob Ray and Mike Robitaille for complete post-game analysis and player interviews.
