Buffalo Sabres = Sold

The Buffalo Sabres are expected to officially announce the sale of the team to Pennsylvania billionaire Terry Pegula on Thursday, with majority owner Tom Golisano, managing partner Larry Quinn, and minority owner Daniel DiPofi anticipated to confirm the transaction in a press conference. But with the club in 10th place in the Eastern Conference and just six points behind Atlanta for the eighth and final playoff spot, the talk of ownership changes off the ice isn't disrupting the players' focus. After all, the team's push for a postseason berth is in full swing, and it won four out of five games leading up to the All-Star break.
