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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
