The puck was set to drop at 7:00 p.m. tonight in the Wells Fargo Center as the Philadelphia Flyers took on the Carolina Hurricanes. However, due to the current weather conditions, the game has been postponed.
Snow emergencies were declared in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware as some areas were seeing as much as two inches of snow an hour. Before the storm is over, we could be seeing a foot of snow or more in the area. NBC10 News is predicting anywhere between nine to 16 inches of snow. 6ABC News is predicting between six to 12 inches of snow. The Eastern PA Weather Authority is predicting between 10 and 15 inches of snow.
Due to the snow emergency, the Flyers made the decision along with the NHL and Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers parent company, to postpone the game tonight.
There is no word on when the game will be rescheduled, but it will be announced soon. Anyone who had a ticket for tonight's game will be able to use the same ticket on the rescheduled date.
