I had tix for tonight but I don't think i am going. Sucks. Took me an hour and twenty to get  home today. Usually 25 mins.

No WAY!  Everyone I knew back in the day always went anyhow.  You know the famous game back in 200...whatever.  If they cancel tonight then this is a weak wussbag team and Lou has lost control and that's why everything is doodoo now!

 

DM - you're just old now :giggle:  I'll forgive you.  :P

I remember a game a few years ago the day after Christmas against Toronto- it was right after Lemaire took over after the MacLean firing. Zajac and Elias wound up having to sleep in Zajac's car on the side of 280 with the heat cranking (I remember reading them telling TG about it), Clarkson and his dad were out there helping people get their stuck cars off the road, the Leafs bus got stuck on the Turnpike... Lookin' like one of those nights tonight. If you go, stay safe.

I really hate that they don't postpone games or issue a refund, im a season ticket holder who has a hour drive without snow most games.  Guess ill try some friends in NY since they can get to the game by train unlike most NJ residents.

I remember a snowstorm game against Buffalo in the early 2000's at CAA...I think the Devils were down 1-0 and scored to tie the game just as time expired...and the goal was called off. They lost 1-0

Didn't Christie declare a state of emergency? If so, it adds to the ridiculousness of playing tonight.

LGD. We could be looking at the 334 Club part 2 tonight lol.

 

There'll never be an attendance that low again due to mass transit, not to mention there are more people in and around Newark than East Rutherford.  But it's still asinine to play this game.


I really hate that they don't postpone games or issue a refund, im a season ticket holder who has a hour drive without snow most games.  Guess ill try some friends in NY since they can get to the game by train unlike most NJ residents.

 

I honestly think they refuse to postpone a game because of the whole mystique of the 334 club and how that gets lionized every year.

If it isn't cancelled by now it won't be. They know people are already on the roads headed there. Would be a huge cluster if the cancel last minute

The Devils website says right on the splash page that tonight's game will be played as scheduled. We have season tickets, but we're just eating this game. Took my wife well over an hour to make a 20-minute drive home from work, and it's only gotten worse since. Sux, but I'm not going back out in this.

NEW YORK / TORONTO -- Tonight's game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes at Wells Fargo Center, NHL Game No. 749, has been postponed due to the snow emergency declared in the city of Philadelphia.

A makeup date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed.

This game should've been cancelled at noon. Bad job by the Devils management. But then again they've pretty much whiffed on everything this year

I'm really confused by all the comments like these. There's been games played where the road conditions have been WAY worse then they are today, and snow falling MUCH heavier. I guess since the team isn't playing to our wonderful fanbase's standards this year it's just time to bitch and moan about everything possible.

 

Point has ALWAYS been, if both teams can get there, the officials can get there, the game will be played. It's never been different then any other year.

Doesn't make those other incidents right.

 

The Flyers got things right today, the Devils didn't

I'm not going to argue over opinions. It's not cancelled...nor should it be in these conditions. It's not snowing over an inch an hour. Now, if someone has tickets to the game and can not make it due to the conditions, and the Devils are unwilling to accommodate in some way, then there's a valid conversation or argument to be had. Saying or insinuating the Devils are bush league to not cancel the game is just bitching for the sake of finding something to bitch about.
