'Western New York sports fans will notice a serious conflict Dec. 17, when the Penguins pay a Saturday night visit. That game will start at 7:30 p.m., but one hour later the Buffalo Bills will play the Denver Broncos in Orchard Park. The Sabres tried to correct the glaring problem but were unable because they also play the Penguins the night before in Pittsburgh. The NHL won't allow an afternoon game to be scheduled the day after a night game.'
