The Buffalo Sabres open the 2017-2018 season Thursday evening with a game against the Montreal Canadiens at KeyBank Center and with the new season comes the return of WBFO's Behind The Bench, our weekly conversation with Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe. On the season premiere, Bill talks about Jack Eichel's big new contract extension, what to expect from new head coach Phil Housley, changes to the team's roster, and Bill gives his prediction on whether the Sabres will finally break their six-season postseason drought.
