In addition, the NHL also says Saturday’s matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets could be impacted as well. The league says a decision on that game will be made later.
A number of Twitter users posted scenes from around Bridgestone, and… yeah… it doesn’t seem ideal for a hockey game.

This also impacts the Music City Hockey Classic between the NCAA’s Northeastern Huskies and Western Michigan Broncos. That game was supposed to take place at 6:30 Friday, following the conclusion of Preds-Avs. There’s been no official word on the status of that game.
