BOSTON - 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 1/2 months of the season.
