Sabres announce time change for Saturday's game against FLA

December 30, 2019

The Buffalo Sabres announced on Monday that the start time for this Saturday's game against the Florida Panthers at KeyBank Center has been changed from 7 p.m. to 1 p.m.

This decision was made after it was announced on Sunday that the Buffalo Bills will face the Houston Texans this Saturday in the AFC Wild Card Round at 4:35 p.m. at NRG Stadium in Houston.

"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," Sabres owner and President Kim Pegula said in a team statement. "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. We would like to thank the Florida Panthers organization for their understanding and willingness to change the start time."

Saturday's game against Florida is also '90s Night at the arena, where they will celebrate the teams of the 1990s, while welcoming back more than 20 Sabres alumni from the decade. Some of the alumni that will be in attendance includes Matthew Barnaby, Stu Barnes, Jay McKee, Michael Peca, Derek Plante, Rob Ray, Richard Smehlik, Pierre Turgeon, and Rhett Warrener.

The game will be televised on MSG and can be heard on our sister station, WBEN News Radio 930 AM. We will have Bills pregame coverage on WGR leading up to the 4:35 p.m. kickoff in Houston.
