Good call by the NHL, and glad to hear our boys are home safe.

Sheesh.
I believe you are missing the point here...

The game is only cancelled because it's the "politically correct" to do, believe me. Running this game with heightened security would EASILY be possible.

But i don't want to get sidetracked here, I have family in Boston, and you best believe my thoughts and prayers are with them tonight.
The game is cancelled because the city was basically on lockdown. They were trying to get people AWAY from downtown Boston. Roads were closed. There's heightened security EVERYWHERE. Why would they want 17k+ people coming into city they're trying to secure?

It's not politically correct, it's common freaking sense.

And the absolute right thing to do. Nothing is more important than protecting the lives of people in Boston.

Agree 100%. The guy you are responding is just talking out of his ass.

It was in no way possible to have a game yesterday.

Anyone who thinks there should have been a hockey game last night really needs to re-evaluate their priorities.

No kidding. As if a game matters at a time like that.

Right thing to do. Now looking at the Bruins schedule, they play every other day. The only time we can play this game is on Sunday the 28th, which is the day after the season ends.

Part of the Boston airport shut down today, looks like it may be a threat received. Ongonig situation, any talk about resuming games, etc. is premature.

mod note: not the time or place to make political or sociopolitical statements. Go to the lounge thread if you want to talk more 'deeply' about this event.

GDT for today is up. This game didn't occur, so perhaps time to lock this "GDT".

yeah, that.

the only other posting on this subject i expect to see on the sens board is confirmed information regarding the rescheduling of the game.
