Snowstorm postpones Lightning-Bruins game

Penguins/NHL Videos

Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, 6:54 p.m.

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, a Bruins spokesman said.

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 Saturday, and roads were still being cleared. A travel ban was in effect until 4 p.m.

Blue Jackets demote Savard

The Columbus Blue Jackets reassigned defenseman David Savard to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Savard, 22, played in three games with Columbus.

In 34 games earlier this season with Springfield he had three goals, 18 assists and a plus-12 rating.
