Behind The Bench: Despite expanded playoffs, Sabres miss the cut

behind_the_bench_1_0_0.jpg

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the NHL's plan to resume play and how the Sabres have once again failed to make it into the postseason, even with an expanded 24-team playoff field. Also, Bill shares his thoughts on the team retaining General Manager Jason Botterill and what challenges await him in what will be an usual offseason. And what's going on with young defenseman Lawrence Pilut and his possible desire to play overseas?
