“It was a very difficult day”: the Sabers thought of Damar Hamlin

That's what general manager Kevyn Adams said after his team won 5-4 in overtime against the Capitals in Washington.

The GM of the Sabers is the only member of his organization to have appeared in front of the media, explaining that he wanted to show solidarity with the Buffalo Bills in the tragedy that is currently affecting them.

On Monday night, safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest after a contract with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. Resuscitation maneuvers were carried out on the ground and the representative of the Bills was transported to a hospital center. He is still in intensive care in a condition considered critical.

“What happened last night [Monday] is something that is bigger in our sport and than all sports. It was a really tough day for us,” Adams expressed.

"To be honest, it's hard to talk about our game. However, I can tell you that we had a group chat this morning and we have so many good people in our locker room. Whether on the side of the players, the coaches or the staff.

A waistcoat and the number three

The Sabers hockey players also all showed up at Capital One Arena with a t-shirt in the colors of the Bills on which it was written: “LOVE FOR 3”.

"We didn't feel like it was a normal game day," said the GM. So we decided to address the question as a group. I told them I was proud of them and what they do for our community."

The number three, which is Hamlin's number, was in the spotlight during the game. It was Tage Thompson's third goal that gave the Sabers the overtime victory.

It was the 25-year-old sensation's third hat-trick this season and the achievement came with both teams playing exactly three minutes into extra time.
