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.
