BOSTON (CBS) — Thursday night’s Bruins-Sabres game in Buffalo is still on. At least for now.

The Bruins canceled their morning skate in Buffalo on Thursday due to a player being entered into the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols. The team had been scheduled to skate at the KeyBank Center at 11:30 a.m., but just after 10 a.m., the team announced the news.

The team conducted further testing and contact tracing Thursday morning, and announced Thursday afternoon that the game will be played as scheduled. That could change between now and 7 p.m., but for now, the game remains on the NHL’s Thursday night slate.

This is the second instance of the COVID-19 protocols affecting the Bruins in the past week. Forward Jake DeBrusk was placed in the COVID-19 protocols last week, though he quickly became available after his positive test was deemed to have been a false positive.

Thursday is set to be the first game of the season between Boston and Buffalo, after the Sabres’ season paused for about two weeks due to COVID-19.
