Despite an early storm that's literally dumping snow by the foot just outside downtown Buffalo, tonight's game will go on.
The official press release from Sabresdigitalpress.com goes like this:
Tonight’s Buffalo Sabres game against the San Jose Sharks, taking place at 7:30 p.m. at First Niagara Center, will be played as scheduled. Due to the inclement weather and dangerous driving conditions in some areas of Western New York, the Sabres organization is urging anyone planning to attend tonight’s game to obey all local traffic advisories and driving bans. Those who decide it is safe to travel to tonight’s game are encouraged to use caution and allow for extra driving time to the arena.
Fans are also reminded that the game will be televised on NBCSN and the radio broadcast will be available on WGR 550.
Fans who are unable to attend tonight’s game will be able to exchange their unused tickets from tonight’s game for tickets to a future Sabres game (list of games below). Tickets and location will be based on availability.
