Sabres at Penguins Game Postponed Until Tuesday At 7:30

Last night's Bruins vs. Penguins game was moved to this afternoon to accommodate the authorities' search for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing. Therefore, the Sabres game scheduled for tonight against Pittsburgh has been moved to Tuesday at 7:30pm.

Here's the official press release from the Buffalo Sabres on the postponing of tonight's game:

The game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins scheduled for tonight at TD Garden has been postponed, the National Hockey League announced today.

The game has been tentatively rescheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, April 20, at TD Garden beginning at 12:30 p.m., Eastern time. The game's status will be formalized no later than 8:30 a.m.

The game between the Penguins and Buffalo Sabres, scheduled for Saturday night in Pittsburgh, has been moved to Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m., ET.

The move doesn't create any kind of strategic advantage for Buffalo, who are on the wrong end of back-toback games either way. Strategic advantages also doesn't really matter anymore since the Sabres were eliminated from playoff contention last night by the Rangers, but still.
