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.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
