The Buffalo Sabres and the National Hockey League  announced the team’s 2013-14 regular-season schedule.  The Sabres season-opener is scheduled for Oct. 2 against the Red Wings, a new Eastern Conference and divisional foe, in Detroit.

The Sabres then return to Buffalo for the team’s home-opener against another division rival, the Ottawa Senators, on Oct. 4 at First Niagara Center.

TheSabres will play on consecutive nights a franchise-low 13 times in 2013-14 after leading the league in back-to-back sets during each of the last two full-length seasons (2011-12, 2010-11). In the team’s 42-season history, the Sabres have averaged 20 back-to-back sets per year in full-length seasons. Since the 2004-05 lockout, they have played the most in the league.
