If there’s one thing we can give Gary Bettman and the NHL credit for, they know where they stand in the pecking order. The NHL PR Department tweeted that the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals start time on January 24th would be moved to avoid competing with the NFL Championship round.
The Buffalo Bills dispatched the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Divisional Round, paving their way to a Sunday night AFC Championship game with the Kansas City Chiefs. By doing so, the Bills have imposed themselves on the Sabres primetime showdown with the Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals. The NHL conceded their position, moving the Sabres puck drop to 3 pm EST.
The Sabres have taken the backburner in upstate New York early this season with Josh Allen marching the Bills towards the Super Bowl.
