Sabres at Blue Jackets postponed due to travel restrictions
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Sabres game at the Columbus Blue Jackets was postponed by the NHL because Buffalo International Airport remains closed due to a severe winter storm that has paralyzed the region.
A makeup date has yet to be determined.
A travel ban is in place in Buffalo, and the airport won’t open until at least Wednesday morning as a result of a storm that’s dumped close to 50 inches of snow on the area. The Sabres were scheduled to travel to Columbus following the NHL’s mandatory Christmas break.
Buffalo has won four straight but hasn’t played since closing a three-game road trip with a 3-2 victory at Vegas on Dec. 19. The Sabres’ home game against Tampa Bay on Dec. 23 was postponed as a result of the storm.
Buffalo is next scheduled to play when it hosts the Detroit Red Wings.
In another weather-related postponement, St. Bonaventure rescheduled its college women’s basketball game against Buffalo. The game was originally scheduled to be played, but it was moved back a day to allow players to return to campus following their holiday break.
