The Sabres have announced a time change for their Feb. 20 home game against Washington. The Sunday matinee will begin at 12:30 p.m. rather than the originally schedule 3 p.m. start.
The change was made to accommodate NBC’s "Hockey Day in America" coverage. NBC will broadcast four games, with the first three shown regionally with staggered starts. All viewers will begin with the same game before some viewers are taken to their regional game. The staggered starts will allow for live look-ins of the other games during intermissions. The fourth game, Pittsburgh at Chicago, will be broadcast nationally.
