The game has been postponed due to weather conditions and a make-up date has yet to be announced:
NHL release: "Tonight's game between the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes at First Niagara Center, NHL Game No. 647, has been" (1/2)— Sabres PR (@SabresPR) January 7, 2014
"...postponed due to the hazardous weather conditions in the Buffalo area. A make-up date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed."— Sabres PR (@SabresPR) January 7, 2014
Weather.com projects that Buffalo will experience snow showers all day with potential for four-eight inches of accumulated snow fall. In addition, the service warns that intense winds might cause power outages throughout the area. At the very least, these conditions were intense enough that the NHL opted to postpone the contest.

This marks the first time since December of 2000 that the Sabres have been forced to move a home game.
