Feb 11, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT


The National Hockey League has announced that Saturday’s Bruins-Lightning game — postponed due to severe weather conditions in the Boston area — has been rescheduled for Thursday, Apr. 25 at TD Garden in Boston.

The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET.

For the Bruins, the new date on the calendar makes for a busy end to the season. They’ll play every second night for the entire month of April — prior to the new date, the team was to enjoy a three-night break between Apr. 23-27.

The Lightning will equally busy down the stretch, playing eight games between Apr. 13-27.

The Boston game will also interrupt was was to be a three-game homestand to close out the year — instead, the Bolts will now host Carolina on the 21st, Toronto on the 24th, fly up to Boston to play on the 25th, then return home for the final regular season game of the year against Florida on the 27th.

Of note, the Apr. 25 lineup will now feature 11 games, setting the table nicely for the final day of the regular season (the 27th) which will feature 13 contests.

        Aren’t they out of it now or are they going to go on a winning streak this month?

    Good one, Joe. I actually did laugh. Too bad you’re wrong though.

    Hopefully by that time, Tampa will have learned how to win on the road! haha That was certainly a blessing. Coming home with a four game losing streak is looking on the bright side when it could have been a FIVE game skid! The NY loss was a good one for them. Now they’re pissed and ready to focus on what went wrong.
