Want to see the Sabres play in the desert of Phoenix. Thanks to the NHL’s return to a balanced schedule, Buffalo will play in northwest Canada, southeast Florida and all points between. For the first time since 1997-98, every team will visit the other 29 cities as part of a home-and-away series. The league’s previous schedule matrix had Eastern Conference teams visiting their Western brethren every other year, which deprived Buffalonians of visiting fun cities and prevented transplants from getting a regular look at their hometown squad. The best thing about traveling alongside the Sabres is experiencing the sights, sounds and food that are featured throughout North America. Each NHL city has a distinct feel and specialty. During my 12 seasons covering the Sabres, I’ve been fortunate to spend time and attend games in all 30 NHL cities (31 if you include dearly departed Atlanta). It means view what each city is known for but also seek out what it’s not. The Empire State Building is a must-see in New York, but so is the view on the Staten Island Ferry. Parliament Hill in Ottawa is a sight to behold, but so is the line for a shawarma at 2 a. m. There’s a reason tourist attractions become famous, so by all means check them out. Just be sure to see what else the towns offer, things that locals know and love. There is no reason – no reason.
Ray Lewis is injured and will not play again this season. How should Lewis be assessed. The minor question is whether Lewis was tailing off this year. The answer is: Of course he was -- he was playing as an NFL linebacker at age 37. Sunday, Lewis whiffed badly on what looked to be a routine tackle at the line of scrimmage, allowing Felix Jones of Dallas a 22-yard touchdown run. after Sunday, it was 26th. Father Time is catching up to others on the Baltimore front, too. But Lewis' decline is obvious. So how to assess Lewis. The positive are many: Super Bowl ring, two defensive Player of the Year awards, an amazing 12 Pro Bowl trips. And in an era of me-first job-hopping by players and coaches alike, Lewis has spent his entire 17-season career in the same place. The negative: Lewis has a criminal record, from pleading guilty to a serious crime. In 2000, Lewis and two other men were charged with murder in Fulton County, Ga. (Atlanta). The murder charge was dropped when Lewis pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and agreed to testify against the friends he had been with when the friends stabbed two men to death after a Super Bowl party.
