Due to the state of emergency still in effect from Superstorm Nemo, the National Hockey League announced moments ago that Saturday’s matchup featuring Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning at the TD Garden has been postponed to a later date (still yet to be determined).

Although Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick lifted the traveling ban for 4 p.m. its safe to say that the league made the right decision. Even with league personnel on site, safety is the first concern and it would have been increasingly difficult for many fans, media and TD Garden employees to arrive for a 7 p.m. faceoff, especially with the MBTA postponing its services until further notice.

The Bruins and Lightning are both scheduled to travel tomorrow to face the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, respectively. The two teams will meet in Tampa on Feb. 21st.
