SABRES BROADCAST TEAM SCHEDULES ANNOUNCED
The Buffalo Sabres today announced the reduced schedule of games that the broadcast team of Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale will work during the 2011-12 season. In total, Jeanneret and Neale will call 57 regular season games (39 home, 18 away), with Kevin Sylvester and Danny Gare taking over the remaining 23 games.

The schedule does not include the Sabres’ first two regular season games, which will be played in Europe as part of the 2011 NHL Premiere Series.

Sylvester and Gare will begin their schedule with the Sabres’ Nov. 5 game at Ottawa. Their schedule will include one home game (Feb. 24 vs. Boston) and 22 road games. They will join the team for seven single-game road trips and three multiple-game trips, including seven games from Jan. 14 to Jan. 31 and five games from Feb. 25 to Mar. 5.

Sylvester and Gare are both familiar faces for Sabres fans. Sylvester has been a member of the Sabres’ broadcast team for six seasons, hosting the team’s broadcasts since the 2005-06 season. He has filled in for Jeanneret several times since 2008 and will continue to handle play-by-play duties for the upcoming season.

Gare will join Sylvester in the booth as a color analyst. Gare returns to the Sabres’ broadcast team after a seven-season absence. In his previous role with the Sabres, Gare worked as the team’s rinkside reporter from 1997-98 through 2002-03 before joining the Columbus Blue Jackets as a color analyst. Gare has since filled in for Mike Robitaille as a studio analyst for the Sabres.

Rob Ray, who has been part of the broadcast team since the 2003-04 season, will join Jeanneret and Neale as a second color analyst during their games.

Jeanneret, who will be entering his 40th season with the Sabres, explained that the change is an effort to extend his career. Jeanneret started with the team prior to the 1971-72 season, serving as the club’s radio voice, and held that post until 1995. He then became the team’s television play-by-play announcer beginning with the 1995-96 campaign.

It will be Neale’s fifth year in Buffalo, after joining the Sabres at the start of the 2007-08 season. He previously worked for more than 20 years as an analyst for Hockey Night in Canada, along with regional coverage of Toronto Maple Leafs games.
