On Sunday, the NHL announced that the January 24 matchup between the Capitals and the Sabres will now start at 3 p.m. ET instead of 7 p.m. ET.
The Philadelphia Flyers will look for their third straight win to open the season when they host the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. The Flyers surged to two wins over the Pittsburgh Penguins by a combined score of 11-5. But the task will be a bit more daunting with Sean Couturier out for a minimum of two weeks with a Costochondral separation.
Philadelphia went 41-21-7 overall and 16-4-4 in division play a season ago. The Flyers scored 47 power play goals on 226 power play opportunities last season. Buffalo finished 10-12-2 in division games and 10-20-4 on the road a season ago.
