The National Hockey League announced on Friday a total of 10 games have been rescheduled for the 2020-21 regular season. Half of the games rescheduled this season is as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak that affected the Dallas Stars during their training camp.
As part of the schedule changes, the Buffalo Sabres will have a pair of games against the Pittsburgh Penguins later in the season rescheduled.
The first game that was rescheduled was originally set to take place on Saturday, March 27 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. That game will now be played on Friday, March 26 at 7 p.m. EST.
Buffalo's second game with the Penguins that has been rescheduled this season was set to be played on Tuesday, April 20 at KeyBank Center. That contest will now take place on Monday, April 19 at 7 p.m. EST.
There was no explanation given for why the league rescheduled both games.
The Sabres and Penguins will meet eight times this season with the first contest scheduled for March 11 in Buffalo.
