BOUCHERVILLE, Que. - A massive storm that has dumped more than 40 centimetres of snow in Quebec's Eastern Townships and is hitting the Maritimes has forced the postponement of a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game.

The Acadie-Bathurst Titan were scheduled to host the Moncton Wildcats on Sunday afternoon. The two teams will now play the game Monday evening.

The storm moved into Ontario from the United States on Friday. The Ottawa and Niagara Falls areas were the hardest hit in Ontario with more than 45 centimetres of snow since Friday.

Due to higher winds and blowing snow, the situation is even worse in Montreal and Eastern Quebec. In parts of the Maritimes falling snow is being mixed with freezing rain.
