BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The start time for the Buffalo Sabres home game against the Washington Capitals on Feb. 20 has been moved up to 12:30 p.m. to accommodate television scheduling.
The change was announced by the Sabres on Wednesday after NBC reached a deal to broadcast four games on that date as part of its Hockey Day in America coverage. Sabres-Capitals was originally scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
