Breaking news for the Chicago Blackhawks: The game against the Buffalo Sabres slated for tonight has faced a reschedule due to severe weather conditions in the greater Buffalo area.

The National Hockey League has officially confirmed the postponement of Game #691, initially set to see the Buffalo Sabres host the Chicago Blackhawks.

This decision follows a tragic event with three casualties in Buffalo due to a severe storm.




The rescheduled game will now take place tomorrow, Thursday, January 18, at 7 p.m. ET, reflecting the challenges posed by travel restrictions in Buffalo.

In response to these changes, Game #689, originally scheduled between the Detroit Red Wings and the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. ET tonight, will now receive national coverage on TNT in the U.S.


Furthermore, fans in Detroit and Florida can catch the action locally on Bally Sports Detroit and Bally Sports Florida.

As both teams adapt to this unexpected scheduling shift, stay tuned for updates on how they navigate the situation.
