Bruins-Senators Game At TD Garden Postponed In Wake Of Boston Marathon Bombings
BOSTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — The NHL says Monday night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins at TD Garden has been postponed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.
No makeup date has been scheduled.
The league says it “wishes to express its sympathy to all affected by the tragic events that took place in Boston earlier this afternoon.”
Two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon on Monday, killing two people, injuring 50 others, and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other explosive devices were found nearby.
The Celtics are scheduled to host the Pacers at TD Garden on Tuesday night.
