The NHL postponed last night’s Boston Bruins game at TD Garden because of the Boston Marathon bombings.

No makeup date has been scheduled, and no other games around the country were immediately called off.

Bruins President Cam Neely, a longtime former Boston player, said the postponement was made in consultation with city, state and league officials. He said authorities are still gathering information and “it is vital they have all resources available for their investigation.”
