SABRES/CAPITALS FACE-OFF AT 12:30 P.M. THIS SUNDAY
/ Buffalo Sabres
The Buffalo Sabres want to remind fans that Sunday’s home game vs. Washington is a 12:30 p.m. start. The game was initially announced as a 3 p.m. start when the NHL schedule was released in June, but was moved up last month to accommodate NBC's Hockey Day in America coverage.
NBC Sports will broadcast four NHL games on Sunday, featuring eight teams from some of the most avid U.S. hockey markets. The first three games will be broadcast regionally with staggered starts. All viewers will begin the day with the same game before some viewers are taken to their regional game. The staggered starts allow for live look-ins of the other regionalized games during intermissions. The fourth game, Pittsburgh at Chicago, will be broadcast nationally. All games will be streamed live on NBCSports.com.
