4 games postponed

The Sabres were scheduled to start a road trip on Tuesday, but the game against the New York Islanders has been postponed, along with the next 3.

This reported postponement initially seemed to be purely weather-related as New York State has had some wintery conditions over the previous 24 hours.

The New Jersey Devils, who were just in town to play Buffalo for a pair of games, have run into some COVID issues and have had players test positive.

This turned out to be much more than just weather-related…

Taylor Hall and Rasmus Ristolainen were both added to the Covid list on Tuesday, and others were awaiting test results.

With that, the NHL postponed Buffalo’s next four games. Two against the Islanders and two against the Bruins.

The Sabres next scheduled game is Thursday, February 11th against the Washington Capitals. If they resume their schedule then, it’d be the first of four games in six nights, two vs. the Capitals and two vs. the Islanders.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
