The Buffalo Sabres unveiled their variable ticket prices for all games played at First Niagara Center during the upcoming season.

The pricing plan breaks down into five classifications (platinum, gold, silver, bronze and value) based on opponent, day of week and time of year and whether opponents have marquee players. The only platinum game is Saturday, Nov. 15 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

There are seven gold games on the docket and 14 silver-priced games -- including the home opener against Columbus on Oct. 9, 11 bronze games and eight value games.

The gold games are as follows: Pittsburgh (Nov. 8), Montreal (Nov. 28), Dec. 27 (N.Y. Islanders), March 14 (N.Y. Rangers), April 1 (Toronto), April 3 (Chicago) and April 11 (Pittsburgh).

Three of the final four home games are gold with Carolina's visit on April 6 priced at the value level.

Other value games include: Anaheim (Oct. 13), San Jose (Nov. 18), Tampa Bay (Dec. 2), Calgary (Dec. 11), Ottawa (Feb. 10), Nashville (Feb. 22) and Arizona (March 26).

Ryan Miller's first game in First Niagara Center as an opposing goalie will be a bronze-priced game as Vancouver visits Thursday, Feb. 26. Those wanting to see the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings' visit at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 9 can also do so at a bronze price.

Other bronze games include: Boston (Oct. 30), Detroit (Nov. 2), Montreal (Nov. 5), Detroit (Jan. 13), Minnesota (Jan. 15), St. Louis (Feb. 5), N.Y. Islanders (Feb. 8), Philadelphia (Feb. 15) and Washington (March 16).

Besides the home opener, other silver games include: Florida (Oct. 17), Boston (Oct. 18), Edmonton (Nov. 7), N.Y. Rangers (Nov. 21), Winnipeg (Nov. 26), Dec. 13 (Florida), Dec. 20 (Colorado), Tampa Bay (Dec. 31), Florida (Jan. 2), Philadelphia (Jan. 17), Dallas (Feb. 7), Ottawa (Feb. 20) and New Jersey (March 20),

Most of the silver games will be played on Friday or Saturday. The only exceptions are the home opener, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day game against Winnipeg and the 6 p.m. New Year's Eve game against Tampa, which is also a Wednesday game.

Below is the breakdown of variable ticket prices with the box office and mini-pack prices.

Mini-packs go on sale Sept. 4, while fans can purchase individual game tickets beginning at 9 a.m. Sept. 13. Existing mini-pack holders can start renewing their ticket packages beginning Aug. 27.
