The Buffalo Sabres have announced the team will play the Florida Panthers at 1:00 p.m. instead of 7:00 p.m. Saturday (January 4).
The move comes as the Buffalo Bills gear up for their playoff match-up against the Houston Texans that same day.
The game will be televised on MSG and can be heard on WBEN 930 AM instead of WGR 550 AM due to Bills programming. The team will celebrate ’90s Night presented by Roswell Park Comprehensive Care Center on Saturday afternoon, welcoming back more than 20 Sabres alumni from the decade.
“We are happy to announce this start time change so that all of our fans can enjoy the Buffalo Bills playoff game on Jan. 4 after our Sabres game,” Buffalo Sabres Co-Owner and President Kim Pegula said. “Buffalo has a great tradition of all of our teams and fans supporting each other, and we want to make sure we can accommodate everyone the best way possible.”
It was originally scheduled for 7 p.m.
Now fans going to the game won’t miss the #Bills game
