Lightning-Bruins game postponed

Saturday's schedule game between the Lightning and Bruins has been postponed.

BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Bruins have postponed Saturday night's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning because of the blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow on the area.


No makeup date had been scheduled yet, according to a Bruins spokesman.


Originally scheduled for 1 p.m., the game was pushed back until 7 p.m. to allow the storm to pass. But public transportation was not expected to resume on Saturday, and roads were still being cleared. A travel ban was in effect until 4 p.m.


The Bruins already are playing an abbreviated schedule because of the lockout that wiped out the first 3 months of the season.
