06:58 PM ET 02.08 | Once you'e done rolling your eyes over the fact that weather men, er, weather terrorists have begun naming winter storms in an effort to make us terrified of the fluffiest stuff on earth, you'd better check your local listings as the times of some sporting events have changed. Thanks to the Snow-pocalypse Nemo, the NHL has rescheduled Saturday's game between the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning. Nemo is expected to reach the Northeast this weekend and already almost 3,000 flights in and out of the area have been cancelled. The game was originally scheduled for 1 p.m. ET but has been moved back to 7 p.m. ET as to allow Bostonians the opportunity to brave blizzard conditions in the dark.

Just think of the kick-arse snowmen they're going to be able to make.

Jamie Benn starting to get going...and my hockey pool appreciates the return of D Roy.

Like I said the other night, GB...

The Stars are a much different team with Roy out there.

What do you expect from an outfit called "Fansided"? Must've sapped most of their brain juices to come up with something like that.

I expect their next headline is going to read: "Snow-magedon."

Ooops! Damn! I shouldn't be giving them any ideas!

I saw the highlights (maybe lowliglts) to that game. There ought to be some fines coming down for that kind of stuff.

It would be cool to see them all over the place but there will be no snowmen being made from this stuff.

Just wait for the temps to rise and all that white stuff on the ground becomes very usable...

I'm not sure they're going to get this game in.

February 9, 2013  01:51 PM ET

what does Nemo have to do with this?

Which intern is mailing it in by posting every article "Fansided" posts, and why do we have to read all of these amateur articles? Is it sad that I'm looking forward to the next Toronto daily rag post?
