NEW YORK — For all the Tampa Bay Lightning fans who were planning on seeing the boys take the ice in New York against the Buffalo Sabres – you're going to have to wait for a couple more months.
The National Hockey League announced on Wednesday the Friday contest was postponed with severe winter storms expected to impact the Buffalo area.
The game between the Bolts and Sabres was rescheduled to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 4 at the KeyBank Center.
This change also impacted the schedule of another NHL team with the Philadelphia Flyers originally set to face the Sabres on March 4. The new game day for them is set for 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 9 at the KeyBank Center.
The Bolts won't be back in the Tampa Bay area playing at Amalie Arena again until Wednesday, Dec. 28.
