Sabres fans can expect changes at Tuesday night’s game at the First Niagara Center. Fans will be the first to experience new security rules.

Starting tonight, everyone entering an NHL game at the First Niagara Center will be swept with a hand-held wand before going into the arena.

The wands are already used on a limited basis for other events.
