Four more Sabres games officially wiped out as NHL cancels through Nov. 1

The NHL said earlier this week that it wanted to start the season Nov. 2. It stood to reason, then, that all games between Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 would get wiped out.

It officially happened today.

The NHL has announced that all games through Nov. 1 are canceled. The move deletes four games from the Sabres' schedule: next Friday in New Jersey, Oct. 28 at home against Philadelphia, Oct. 30 in Boston and Nov. 1 against Phoenix in First Niagara Center.

The NHL canceled the opening two weeks of the season earlier this month. Nine games for the Sabres have been axed.

The decision comes one day after the collective bargaining talks between the league and the NHL Players' Association took a step backward.
