BUFFALO, NY - Friday is the first test for the new team leading the future of the Buffalo Sabres. The return of Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan to the franchise has fans excited.

The shakeup comes just as the Sabres are taking on the Toronto Maple Leafs. The last time the two teams played, a pre-season game in September, was complete with a huge brawl on the ice.

Two On Your Side's Pete Gallivan caught up with the Sabres' new Director of Hockey Operations Pat Lafontaine at the First Niagara Center before the game.
