Thursday’s game between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers at TD Garden has been postponed due to the severe winter storm impacted the area.

The NHL says a new date and time for the game will be announced at a later date.

A massive winter storm swept from the Carolinas to Maine on Thursday, dumping snow along the coast and bringing strong winds that will usher in possible record-breaking cold.

Up to 18 inches of snow was expected in eastern New England. Blizzard warnings and states of emergency were in effect, schools and government offices closed for the day and motorists were warned to be careful as conditions worsened.
