Blizzard puts Canes game in Buffalo on ice

Posted January 7
Updated January 8

Due to whiteout conditions and temperatures near zero in Buffalo, N.Y., the National Hockey League announced on Tuesday the postponement of Tuesday night's Eastern Conference tilt between the Carolina Hurricanes and Buffalo Sabres. 

The teams had been scheduled to play at First Niagara Center at 7 p.m. 

No information about a possible makeup date has been released. The last Hurricanes game to be postponed by weather was in January 2000, when a home game against the Phoenix Coyotes was postponed one day due to snow in Raleigh.

The Hurricanes are scheduled to return to Raleigh on Thursday for a 7 p.m. game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Wow!

    I will be the first to say it. You know it's cold when they cancel a hockey game.

  • common tater Jan 7, 3:28 p.m.

    Yes, too cold for a hockey game...wow.

    It is 5 degrees there now and the sun is out. What's this all about

    5-10 inches of snow. Putting a lot of people at risk, including our team and staff, by forcing people to go the arena. This is a classy move.

    It does put fans at risk, but the Canes still need to get home so they'll be on the road no matter what.

    Maybe it has something to do with the blizzard warning for tonight and up to 2 feet of snow?

    Beer must be in short supply in Buffalo right now.

    You'd have to be one heckuva diehard Sabre (or Hurricane) fan to even be thinking about attending the game...probably a good decision on a couple of fronts. Additionally, my daughter and I are making the roadie to Columbus (my home town) for Friday's game, and now it won't be the 5th game in 7 nights (though still the second back-to-back of the week). I'm worried about the 'Canes coming out tired and flat for that game but now things might be a little better.
