Due to the massive manhunt for the second marathon bomber, the Bruins-Penguins game scheduled for last night at the Garden was postponed until today at 12:30 p.m. The B’s will play their final six regular-season games in nine days. Tickets for last night’s game will be honored. “If Boston is moving and it’s business as usual, the game will go on,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told TSN hours before the manhunt ended with the capture of a suspect. Daly said the league looked into playing the game at a different venue, but said that was not preferable. The manhunt also caused the postponement of last night’s Red Sox game, the Big Apple Circus, the Boston Symphony, today’s Boston College spring football game, today’s Boston Breakers’ soccer match at Kansas City, as well as the closings of various colleges and businesses. To accommodate the rescheduled game, the Penguins’ game against the Sabres in Pittsburgh tonight was moved to Tuesday night. Getting in the game today would mean both teams would avoid playing three games in three days, which is prohibited in the new collective bargaining agreement. Last night, Daly spoke with NHLPA president Donald Fehr about making an exception to that rule, if needed.
