BUFFALO – Tonight’s game in Boston between the Bruins and Penguins has been tentatively postponed until Saturday afternoon, meaning the Sabres’ scheduled tilt in Pittsburgh that night has been pushed back to Tuesday.
The police manhunts following Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings forced the postponement.
The NHL will announce by 8:30 a.m. Saturday if the game in Boston can be played at 12:30 p.m.
The Sabres are still scheduled to host the New York Rangers tonight at the First Niagara Center. Their game in Pittsburgh will close their road schedule.
