Sabres’ Saturday game against Bruins postponed; fans will be refunded

Buffalo Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Sabres game Saturday against Boston has been postponed after four more Bruins players entered the NHL’s COVID Protocol.

It’s not yet clear when the Sabres will play next after their loss to the Bruins on Wednesday night. The Sabres are currently on a 13-game winless streak.

The Bruins’ Tuesday game against the New York Islanders is postponed, too. Right now, depending on test results, the Bruins are planning to get back to practice this coming Wednesday.

Saturday’s game was supposed to be the first to feature fans, other than the frontline workers who watched on Wednesday, in the stands.

Fans who had tickets to the game will be refunded for the tickets, and will be given tickets to a game next season.
