NHL, NIT action postponed by storm
The winter storm wreaking havoc in the Northeast forced postponement of an NHL and an NIT game and the cancellation of most flights in and out Buffalo as several college basketball teams head in for the NCAA Tournament.
Tuesday night’s game between the Winnipeg Jets and New Jersey Devils was postponed and rescheduled for March 28 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The NIT game between UNC-Greensboro and Syracuse also was postponed and rescheduled for tonight at the Carrier Dome.
NCAA officials say five of eight teams competing in Buffalo have arrived for the NCAA Tournament, which begins Thursday.
