From the league:

Due to the continuing weather-related difficulties in the Greater Buffalo area and out of respect for the fans of the Sabres, Friday’s game between the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres at First Niagara Center, NHL Game No. 291, has been postponed.

A makeup date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed.

It’s worth noting the league went ahead with Tuesday’s Sabres-Sharks game -- played in front of a sparse crowd at First Niagara -- despite the onset of heavy snowfall earlier in the day. There’s been five feet accumulated already in the Western New York area, and up to three more feet are expected by end of Thursday.

“Hockey seems like a very small thing when a city is going through what we’re going through right now,” Sabres coach Ted Nolan said today, per TSN.
