BOSTON The Boston Bruins' game against the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight has been postponed due to the heavy snowfall throughout New England and it limiting the ability of fans and employees to get to the TD Garden.

A similar outcome doesn't appear likely for the Boston Celtics who will host the Denver Nuggets at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Denver is currently in Cleveland where they will take on the Cavs tonight at 7:30 p.m.

A Denver Nuggets official told CSNNE.com Saturday afternoon that the Nuggets are still on schedule to leave Cleveland heading for Boston following their game tonight which is standard protocol in the NBA when playing back-to-back nights.

Ahead of one of the worst snow storms in recent memory, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick issued a ban against driving except for emergency vehicles and certain workers.

The ban was set to be lifted today at 4 p.m. - just three hours before the Bruins-Lightning game which had been originally set to be played at 1 p.m. but was then pushed back to 7 p.m. because of the weather.
