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

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
