Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins has been postponed due to a small weather event. This should come as no surprise.
When you woke up this morning, you may have noticed up to 18 inches of snow outside your door. When I stepped outside, there was a near whiteout with the trees swinging heavily in the wind. And there’s more coming. According to The Washington Post’s Capitol Weather Gang the snow won’t stop until early Sunday morning. By then 18 to 30 inches may be on the ground. Wind gusts are expected to reach 50 miles per hour. Roads are impassable, but that doesn’t matter because your car is buried in white fluff. The entire Metro Transit system has been shut down. All of the area’s airports — Dulles, National, and BWI — are closed, making it impossible for the Penguins to get here anyway. There was absolutely no way this game could have been played.
