Escape is at Hand For The Traveling Man

A grueling full day of non-stop action has resulted in completed display cases. Yeah! 

Wednesday was the final install day and the Buffalo Sabres 40th Anniversary Exhibit (see info below) is complete.  The Buffalo Hockey Experience + Museum collection is mounted, hung, labeled in 2 custom-designed display cases at HSBC Arena.  

They can be viewed during any event, hockey game or at the many open Sabres practice. Watching the glass guys finally drop in the panes was quite a relief.  It looks good, check it out.  More info about this experience will come down the road, for now, enjoy these snapshots.

Case 1- full!
Case 2- the view from coming up the west side escalator.

ALL ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: Come see the full exhibit commemorating 40 years of cool Buffalo Sabres hockey moments based on items from the Buffalo Hockey Experience + Museum's permanent collection. It all goes on display at HSBC Arena for the first pre-season Sabres game and will be up all season, 2nd floor, on either side of the big center bar overlooking the entrance.
