BUF

NYR

1 SABRES

How to sum up Buffalo's season? Let's just say winger Evander Kane, who has a team-high 14 goals, has been great.

2 RANGERS

After getting off to a 1-5-2 start, the Blueshirts have bounced back (18--12--3), thanks to winger Mats Zuccarello, who leads the team with 27 points.

3 SHAKE SHACK

Hit the famed burger stand early or prepare for an endless line.

4 FUKU

Starting 2018 with a delicious fried chicken sandwich is a fine idea. Resolutions are for Jan. 2.

5 DŌ

Indulge your inner child—or your actual child—with a bowl of raw (but totally safe to eat) cookie dough.

6 FAN FEST

The fun begins at 9 a.m. in Lot F, where everyone is invited to enjoy interactive hockey-themed games, win prizes and warm up with breakfast from food trucks, Stuf'd and Big D's Grub.

NOT IN QUEENS?

IN BUFFALO ...

Take in the game at (716) Food and Sport(above), just down the street from the Sabres' KeyBank Center. With more than 70 TVs, including one 38-foot screen above the main bar, you'll enjoy a better view than any of the fans at Citi Field—and you'll be warmer too.

IN MANHATTAN ...

Head to TriBeCa and have brunch at Warren 77—if you can snag a table at the small but ultrahip Rangers-themed restaurant-bar. Proudly listing poutine on the menu and serving Molson Canadian on tap, it's a little slice of the Great White North in the Big Apple.
