As far as Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello is concerned, Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Prudential Center is on.

But it won't be Lamoriello's call.

"Right now everything is as scheduled," Lamoriello said at 9 a.m. Wednesday from his office at the Rock. "The league gets involved with these matters."

Lamoriello said he had "no problem" getting to the arena, but knows the forecast sounds ominous for the rest of the day.

"I'm not a weatherman," the GM said. "We've gone through this before where the forecast says one thing and it turns out to be different."

The Devils cancelled their morning skate a day early, but would expect players to be able to get to the arena for the game.

As for the Flyers, their equipment arrived at the Prudential Center around 3 p.m. Tuesday and Lamoriello said the team also came in a day ahead.

NHL on-ice officials are also in New Jersey, so that is not a concern. As of 11:30 a.m., it appeared more likely that the game will be played. A cancellation would have to come from commissioner Gary Bettman.
