The NHL postponed Tuesday’s game between the host Columbus Blue Jackets and Buffalo Sabres due to the travel ban in the aftermath of a blizzard that socked the Buffalo region.

The Sabres were scheduled to travel to Columbus on Tuesday morning.

However, the Buffalo airport remains closed after the winter storm that dumped roughly 50 inches of snow beginning Friday. The airport is expected to be shut down at least through Wednesday morning.

The NHL did not announce a makeup date.

The Sabres’ home game against Tampa Bay on Friday was also postponed due to the impending storm. Buffalo, owner of a four-game winning streak, hasn’t played since Dec. 19.
