Bruins push back Saturday's game vs. Lightning due to weather

The Boston Bruins have pushed back the start of Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning by six hours because of the blizzard hitting the Northeast.

The game scheduled for 1 p.m. is now to start at 7 p.m. The Bruins and Lightning each already had road games scheduled for Sunday night.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency and banned travel on roads as of 4 p.m. on Friday in anticipation of a blizzard that could bring nearly a yard of snow to the region. Public transportation also shut down Friday afternoon.

The storm was expected to clear the area by early Saturday afternoon.
