Massive snowfall in the Boston area has led the NHL to postpone tonight's game in Boston between the Bruins and the Lightning.

Although standard practice has always been to stage games if both teams are in town, the league determined that the travel curfew in effect until 4 PM today in Boston would not leave arena employees and security personnel sufficient time to get to the rink.

The league has not yet announced a makeup date, but that process could be a little more difficult than usual given the lockout-shortened schedule. A quick look at openings for the two teams and the TD Garden suggests they may have to wait until April 25 or 26, the season's final week, to fit it in.

Both teams are expected to fly out of town tonight ahead of games tomorrow: Boston is heading to Buffalo, while the Lightning are off to New York to play the Rangers.

The game was initially scheduled as a 1 PM matinee, but was moved to a 7 PM start yesterday.
