BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – ESPN commentator John Buccigross wants to see Sabres fans fill the stands this Friday when the Bruins come to town.

And if they do, they’ll be able to enjoy a free beer. That’s the promise Buccigross made on Twitter Tuesday night.

“Fill the barn Friday night for Me and Cally on ESPN+,” He wrote. “If it’s a sellout I’ll buy everybody a beer! Bourbon for me.”

The Sabres are on a hot streak as the season gets going. So far, they’ve won all three games they’ve played, starting 3-0-0 for the first time since 2008.

Their most recent victory came during Tuesday night’s 5-2 game against the Vancouver Canucks. Their Friday game against the Bruins starts at 7 p.m.
