Hurricanes shut down by a blizzard: NHL postpones Carolina at Buffalo Sabres because of snow

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Hurricanes have been shut down by a blizzard.

The NHL has postponed the game scheduled for Tuesday night in Buffalo between the Sabres and Carolina because of a snowstorm in western New York.

A makeup date has not been determined. The postponement comes with Buffalo dealing with a wintry blast of near-zero temperatures, heavy winds and blinding snow that has forced the closure of most major roadways.

The Hurricanes got to Buffalo before the brunt of the storm hit Monday afternoon. The weather, however, prevented both teams from holding their usual morning pregame skates.

Rescheduling the game could prove difficult in the near future. The Hurricanes host Toronto on Thursday, before travelling to play Columbus on Friday. The Sabres are in the midst of playing 15 games in 31 days.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
