Day in the NHL: Storm forces postponement of Bruins' game
Boston • The Boston Bruins 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 3Â½ months of the season.
Devils 3, Pengins 1 • In Newark, N.J., Adam Henrique and Bobby Butler scored power-play goals during a 2:12 span in the third period, and the New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to four games that snapped the Penguins' five-game winning streak.
Ilya Kovalchuk assisted on the late goals and defenseman Andy Greene had two assists, including the primary one on rookie Stefan Matteau's first NHL goal, as the Devils avenged a 5-1 loss to the Penguins last week.
Martin Brodeur made 24 saves and provided a little humor by chasing his stick late in the second period of his 1,200th career game. He became the first NHL goalie to play that many.
