No idea who makes the call in this situation. The city, the NHL? Is there a certain time they have to cancel it by?

This makes me so depressed that I don't even want the game to happen now.

In all honesty if the game does happen, how do you even celebrate after a goal against Boston? Ridiculous if it is not cancelled. Wouldn't blame all the players for refusing to play.

I wonder when the postponed game will happen if and more likely when it happens?

I've already said it like five times, but does anyone know if the teams are allowed to play with nobody in the stands?

That way, there is no conflict for NHL and safety of the public is taken care of too.

Game will happen IMO. Don't think it should, but there are lots of logistics involved in canceling the game.

When is there an open date to reschedule?

April 28th is the only option. That is the day after regular season ends.

That would be so weird to watch.

I'm sure it's possible. The best thing the NHL can do for its fans that doesn't include postponing the game would be to offer a full refund of the ticket and make the game free for those who do decide to go.

Hard to say what's going to happen...

Some of you guys have very questionable reasoning, however.

I'll ask my media friends about who cancels games. No way it plays - too risky.

I agree in idea (except the fear nonsense) with Dylan but in this case the explosions are too close to the game. If it was on the other side of the city, maybe. They better have 100% security there to prevent another tragedy/mayhem if the game goes on.

It's just common sense to cancel tonight's game. Players' minds will be elsewhere, fans won't be attending, and the entire situation is just ****ed up. They're still finding bombs.

If I were a ticket-holder to tonight's game, they could do a thorough investigation of every nook and cranny of the aarena and I still wouldn't go.

Who is going to rush to downtown Boston to see a hockey game when police are trying to get people OUT of downtown Boston? Goodness. Just cancel it already.

As a person who has to broadcast tonight's Sens-Bruins game from Boston, I think the right thing to do is postpone it.

Game cancellations are group effort of NHL head office and city.

Exactly why I don't think it will happen. There's now a FAA no fly zone there.

Public transit closed or frozen across Boston, schools being evacuated, a no-fly zone in place.

I'm heading off to work now, and if I turn the radio to The Team in a couple of hours and I hear a hockey game, I'm going to be pretty disappointed in the NHL.

EDIT: And there we go, good.
