Penguins Bruins game postponed until Saturday (tenative)

New, comments

In light of events in Boston in the search for bombing suspect, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins game for Friday night as been moved to Saturday, for the time being.

Obviously sports have taken a backseat to real life, and the Pittsburgh Penguins have been in lockdown in their hotel, much like everyone else in the city of Boston as the citywide manhunt for remaining suspect in this week's bombing continues.

So it's no surprise that with no conclusion yet, the game is not going to go on as scheduled tonight. From Penguins.com:

The game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins scheduled for tonight at TD Garden has been postponed, the National Hockey League announced today.

The game has been tentatively rescheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, April 20, at TD Garden beginning at 12:30 p.m., Eastern time. The game's status will be formalized no later than 8:30 a.m.

The game between the Penguins and Buffalo Sabres, scheduled for Saturday night in Pittsburgh, has been moved to Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m., ET.

We'll see how this develops, and best wishes to the brave men and women trying to protect civilzation as the hunt for the suspect continues.
