BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The start time of Buffalo Sabres’ game against the Florida Panthers on Saturday has been moved to 1 p.m.

The Sabres announced the change so their NHL game doesn’t conflict with the Buffalo Bills’ AFC wild-card game being played that afternoon.

The Sabres’ game was initially set to start at 7 p.m., which would have overlapped with the end of the Bills game.

The change was announced Monday, a day after the NFL released its playoff schedule.

The Bills and Sabres are both owned by Terry and Kim Pegula.
