The NHL had already changed the start of the Tampa Bay Lightning-Boston Bruins to 7 p.m. ET Saturday in hopes of getting around the major snowstorm that was going to hit the city. The six hours wasn't enough of a difference, though, as the league announced at 3 p.m. ET that the game would not be played.

"Although both clubs and the assigned on-ice officials are in Boston, travel conditions remain too hazardous for fans, security personnel and TD Garden staff to get to the arena," the league said in a statement.

The league said a makeup date would be announced as soon as it was confirmed. The Bruins are scheduled to visit the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday and the Lightning are Scheduled to play at the New York Rangers.

Some other pro teams were forced to rearrange travel plans because of the storm, which stranded the Knicks in Minnesota and the Spurs in Detroit on Friday night. New York's airports reopened on Saturday, but Boston's Logan Airport remained closed into Saturday night.

The Knicks, who played the Timberwolves on Friday night, returned to New York on Saturday for their Sunday matinee against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs, who ended their 11-game winning streak against the Pistons, play the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.

The Nets took a train home instead of flying from Washington after losing to the Wizards on Friday night, posting a photo of the players boarding a train with the caption, "Backup plan." The Clippers arrived in New York as scheduled on Saturday.

Two Ivy League games that were scheduled for Saturday night were moved to Sunday. Dartmouth will play at Cornell at noon on Sunday in Ithaca, N.Y., and Harvard will visit Columbia at 2 p.m. Sunday in New York. Dartmouth played at Columbia on Friday night, and Harvard played at Cornell.

Two other Ivy League games still were scheduled to be played Saturday night, with Yale visiting Princeton and Brown playing at Pennsylvania. Yale was at Penn on Friday night, and Brown played at Princeton.

Aqueduct also called off Saturday's card because of the storm. The track and Belmont Park were expected to remain open for wagering on out-of-town races, with racing scheduled to resume Sunday. Harness racing was canceled at Freehold Raceway in New Jersey.
