NHL reschedules tonight's Rangers-Sabres game

The postponed game between the New York Rangers and the Buffalo Sabres originally scheduled for tonight at the First Niagara Centre has been rescheduled by the NHL for Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. ET.

The Sabres are scheduled to host the Senators on the same night so that game has been rescheduled to Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. ET.

The lake-effect snow storm that has dumped huge amounts of snow on the Buffalo region prompted the NHL to cancel tonight's game because of the impassable roadways and transportation difficulties.
