NHL Net Switches From Caps to Sabres on Saturday

In the heat of the intense Eastern Conference playoff race, the NHL Network is making a change to it’s live game schedule this Saturday night, from one contender to another.

Instead of the originally schedule Capitals/Canadiens showdown, most markets will see the Sabres taking on the Maple Leafs, giving viewers the Hockey Night in Canada experience regardless, according to the NHL. Due to blackout restrictions, viewers in the Buffalo market will be able to see the Capitals/Canadiens game.

NHL Network airs the entire first half of the HNIC broadcast, starting with Scotiabank Hockey Tonight at 6:30 p.m. ET.

    As a life long Leafs fan I can only apologize for this game being inflicted on a national audience. The Leafs probably aren’t as bad a team as they look right now, but they have quit which is totally unprofessional and the game will in all likelihood be a lopsided blow out.
