The news broke on Twitter, where several members of the Bruins and Senators said they’d received word the game wouldn’t be played.

An official statement from the league followed:

“The game between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins scheduled for tonight at TD Garden has been postponed, the National Hockey League announced today.

“The game will be rescheduled. The date and time will be announced at a later date.

Boston Bruins president Cam Neely also released a statement about an hour after that:

“After consultation with City, State and NHL officials we collectively made the decision to postpone tonight’s game. Public safety personnel from the City and State are still gathering information regarding today’s events and it is vital they have all resources available for their investigation. The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the Bruins organization are with the city of Boston and all those affected by today’s tragedy.”
