BUFFALO, N.Y. — The NHL has postponed the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Buffalo Sabres because of travel restrictio­ns in western New York for extreme winter weather.

The league announced the game scheduled for Wednesday night would instead be played Thursday night. There’s a travel ban in place for the city of Buffalo and local executives were hoping the league would move back the game in the name of public safety.
