Bruins-Senators game in Boston postponed
The Bruins game against the Senators in Boston on Monday night has been postponed following the explosions near the end of the Boston Marathon.
The NHL made the official announcement just before 5 p.m. ET.
The game between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins scheduled for tonight at TD Garden has been postponed, the National Hockey League announced today.
The game will be rescheduled. The date and time will be announced at a later date.
The National Hockey League wishes to express its sympathy to all affected by the tragic events that took place in Boston earlier this afternoon.
“After consultation with City, State and NHL officials we collectively made the decision to postpone tonight's game," said Bruins president Cam Neely in a statement released by the team.
"Public safety personnel from the City and State are still gathering information regarding today's events and it is vital they have all resources available for their investigation. The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the Bruins organization are with the city of Boston and all those affected by today's tragedy.”
Earlier, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference reported that the game was called off and the Bruins were heading home.
