BUFFALO When Bills coach Sean McDermott arrived at the rink prior to Thursdays game, coach Don Granato asked him if he would talk to the Sabres before they went on the ice.
Granato said at first, McDermott wasnt sure if he wanted to address them.
But after he went around and met the guys and saw what we do for a couple hours, hes a natural, obviously, Granato said following Fridays practice at KeyBank Center.
In the dressing room prior to a 6-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues, McDermott told the Sabres he sees what theyre building and they remind him of his 2017 team, which ended the Bills 17-year playoff drought.
We totally changed the culture, and thats whats going on here, McDermott said in a video the Sabres posted on Twitter.
