COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The game between Phoenix and Columbus was postponed by 35 minutes Tuesday night because heavy snowfall hampered the Coyotes' drive from their hotel in the eastern part of the city to the downtown Nationwide Arena.

The Coyotes' bus arrived at the arena about 6:30 p.m., with the game expected to start around 7:35 p.m. - instead of the originally scheduled time of 7 p.m.

The snow following a cold snap snarled traffic throughout the Columbus area and most of the state beginning Tuesday afternoon.
