From Darren Dreger of TSN,
Explaining why the Sabres play so many back to backs is somewhat complicated according to the NHL, although geography and the team’s request to maximize the number of weekend and holiday home games are said to be key contributors.
Buffalo leads the NHL with the most home weekend games (90 over past four years) which is clearly an advantage for the organziation, plus commitments to national broadcast partners specific to the Sabres divisional rivals, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa area also factors into the scheduling equation.
