That's what doesn't make sense. What makes them think the situation will be resolved by tomorrow afternoon? If I were this guy, I'd be getting as far away from Boston as humanly possible right now.

The Pens are going to go cabin crazy being hole'd up in a hotel for 36 (or so) hours!

Hopefully the hotel has a rink so Sidney can get in a practice.

Sid was probably still in NS for the funeral thing he was at on Thursday.

What's unrealstic about it? Do you know the availability of the arena in Boston every day for the next week? How about the Bruins travel? They have 6 games in 9 days. Should they postpone the playoffs just in case?

It's very unfair to reschedule tomorrow's game because of this. There are Buffalo people and out-of-town Pens fans in for the weekend and now they are screwed. There are local fans who are screwed simply because they want to go tomorrow and not Tuesday or can't make it Tuesday. The NHL should not do this.

Of course, rescheduling a Pens home game is insignificant compared to the manhunt in Boston, but the whole need to complete an entire NHL schedule is insignificant to that also. Decide the final standings by points per game and be done with it.

Positives: Being holed up in a hotel can make for a great team bonding experience. The Steelers were "locked down" in a Miami Hotel because of Hurricane Jeanne and they say it really helped bring them together as a group. They won the Superbowl that year. Just sayin.

The NHL has said a decision will be made no later than 8:30am. So, we'll see then.

Is it wrong I somehow hope the time is moved to 7pm for tomorrow? I work and I never was a fan of 12:30 games anyways.

And yes I know my problems are petty compared to what's going on right now. But you can't keep the city on lockdown forever.

I think the Bruins play Sunday afternoon, so playing a game at 7pm tomorrow for them wouldn't work.

This is a great point, it's good to try to make the best of a bad situation - and the Pens have 4 players they recentlty added to the team....

blaming ? rushing to get the game in when the city is still locked down.
do they know that the situation will be resolved tomorrow ? No. but they made all of these arrangements like they know all will be fine by 830am... which is when arena workers/ penguin staff will have to be out and about in Boston and at the rink.

I dont know if the situation will be settled by 8:30 am, but as far as the terrorist getting as far away from Boston as he can, that dude is going to draw his last breath within 100 yards of wherever he is holed up now. It is just a matter of when.

Considering there is only 1 week until the playoffs start and the Bruins still have like 6 games to play, and this not only involves the logistics of the Bruins, but the Celtics, Sabres, Penguins and anyone else that is affected. So some quick decisions have to be made with the hope that the situation is resolved by tomorrow.

Your silver-lining point is well taken, because many players cited that specific experience as a pivotal bonding experience. (Unfortunately, they lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship that year, but that disaster was due to Marty Ball.)

Yeah, it will likely take fans about 3 hours to get through security for the game.

Hmmm.....I have family from out of town visiting this weekend, so I'll have to DVR the game.
I guess it will be on NHLN (as was scheduled tonight)?

Survey says......yes:
