As the rest of the NHL returns from Olympic break, the Buffalo Sabres host the Boston Bruins tonight in Buffalo’s second game in as many nights. It’s sure to be a battle, as the teams sitting at opposite ends of the Eastern Conference meet for the fourth of five meetings this season.
Tonight’s game, which may feature up to nine Olympic players, will be a nationally televised event with puck drop at 7:30 p.m. EST. How nice of the NHL to give all of us an extra 30 minutes to get our dinner and snacks ready before we plant ourselves in front of the TV/computer/radio and settle down for the game.
Tonight’s game is serving as the Wednesday Night Rivalry on NBCSN in the United States and is part of a double-header that will also see the Los Angeles Kings face the Colorado Avalanche at 10 p.m. The Sabres game will also be televised on TSN2 across Canada for fans up in the Great White North.
If you can’t catch the game on television, there are a few other options that might work instead.
For fans in the Buffalo area, listen to the game live broadcast on WGR-550 AM radio. Sabres fans across the world can also listen to the broadcast via WGR’s website. Bruins fans can listen to the radio broadcast of the game on 98.5 The Sports Hub, an affiliate of CBS Boston.
Since tonight’s game is being nationally televised, it will not be available through NHL GameCenter Live. You can still download the GameCenter app to keep track of scores, standings and statistics across the league — it’s available for Android, Apple TV, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone/iPod, Playstation and Xbox, among other devices.
Of course, if you want the best live stream, tickets are still available for tonight’s game.
Many thought last night’s win over Carolina was Ryan Miller‘s last game in a Sabres uniform – could it be tonight instead? Will Tyler Ennis‘ absence from the lineup stunt offensive production? And can Christian Ehrhoff build off his two-goal performance last night and start a streak?
There’s only one way to find out, so you’d better watch tonight’s game as the Sabres host the Bruins at 7:30 p.m. at the First Niagara Center.
