Bruins’ Snow Day Against Lightning Joins New Jersey’s Fabled ‘334’ Game in NHL Lore (Video)

The Bruins tried to play on Saturday despite some snowy conditions in Boston, but ultimately the NHL decided to postpone the game.

While it might be difficult for the B’s to find a date to play the Lightning again, that trouble pales in comparison to the fate that befell several New Jersey Devils players back in 1987. As NESN’s Andy Brickley remembers it, New Jersey had a devil of a time (pun intended) getting to the Meadowlands to play the Calgary Flames, and when the puck did drop, it was under unusual circumstances.

Just 334 fans were on hand to watch the game, and there were barely enough players for New Jersey to field a team. Watch the video from Bruins Face-Off LIVE to hear Brick recount the historic game.
