BRUINS VS LIGHTNING POSTPONED. Stay home.

Elsa

Tonight's Bruins vs Lightning game has been postponed with no rescheduled date set at this time.

Due to dangerous road conditions, an ongoing State of Emergency, and no MBTA service, the NHL has intelligently decided to cancel tonight's Bruins game against Tampa Bay.

The Bruins' next game is scheduled to be tomorrow night at Buffalo; according to KPD, they're planning to attempt to fly out either later tonight or early tomorrow.

This is a very smart move by the NHL - yes, the teams may be in town. However, you can't just count the fans out in a case like this - consider also the Garden workers, many of whom do not live in the Garden area. Additionally, it's probably safe to assume that the police who usually work at the Garden during games would be better used elsewhere this weekend.

UPDATE: Here's the official press release from the Bruins.

The NHL announced today, February 9, that Saturday’s game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins at the TD Garden, NHL Game No. 154, has been postponed due to the continuing, weather-related State of Emergency that remains in effect in Boston.

A make-up date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed.

Although both Clubs and the assigned on-ice officials are in Boston, travel conditions remain too hazardous for fans, security personnel and TD Garden staff to get to the arena.
