They should be in there hotel room. I think morning skate is around 10 or 11 am but I am sure that will be cancelled. Better for everyone in the organization to be safe.

That, and with everyone being told to stay home, I'm not even sure any of the workers will be at the arena to take care of things.

Hopefully this will all be wrapped up in a few hours and they'll be able to play the game.

Isn't it just Watertown that is locked down, and not all of Boston?

If this drags on(I hope it doesn't) ... I don't see anyway they play the game tonight.

I'd be nervous. Average person, not a team in hotel. Sure you can stay in your home, but a person with a bomb and weapons; no security.

Yeah, scary stuff. Hopefully, they can get him soon (dead or alive) without anyone else getting hurt.

How one person can hold an entire city the size of Boston hostage is absolutely insane.

Seriously :shock:

The pictures on this twitter feed are terrifying.

Molinari just tweeted that the Pens have been advised (for the time being) to stay in their hotel.

Authorities believe the bombing suspect still at large in #Boston--in addition to being heavily armed--may be wearing a suicide vest.

This guy (kid?) must have some military training to evade them after the shootout and then remain hidden this long.

It has to be surreal to be living in that town right now. Must feel like a warzone.

RT @ESPN_Burnside: Morning skates for the host Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins have been called down. No surprise there.

The game tonight is likely to be canned next. First off let's hope nobody gets hurt today, secondly let's hope they catch the bastard and finally let's hope the Pens can get out of the city before tomorrow's game.

Depending on how long this goes on, it may even affect the Pens travel plans for tommorrows game.

Not that this is as important compared with what has happened/is happening in Boston, but if the Pens were unable to leave Boston in time for the game tomorrow, would the Pens be forced to forfeit?
