The Sabres have just put out a series of three tweets that reads as follows:
"On status of tonight's game: "We are still gathering all the pertinent information regarding the weather forecast for later today. We will make a final decision about tonight’s game vs. Carolina Hurricanes by mid-afternoon. We have been in contact with the City of Buffalo, Carolina Hurricanes and the NHL office regarding the status of the game."
The Sabres canceled their morning skate, largely so the players didn't have to travel the distance downtown, return to their homes and then come back. The Hurricanes, who are staying at the Embassy Suites downtown, went ahead with their morning skate as usual beginning at around 11:30.
As I wrote earlier today, the game can't be moved to tomorrow because the Hurricanes are already scheduled to play Thursday and Friday and NHL rules prohibit three games in three days.
