BUFFALO, N.Y.- The announcement Wednesday that Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan would be returning to the Sabres became the dominant topic on Buffalo social media.

Searches for the Sabres on Twitter or Facebook usually find complaints about the franchise, but fans today were singing a much more positive tune.

2 On Your Side's Pete Galivan also trended on Twitter due to his many updates from the news conference and especially for tweeting out a picture of the new coach talking to his team on the ice for the first time.
