Yale's game at Clarkson postponed

A winter storm in New York's North Country has postponed the Yale men's hockey team's game at Clarkson on Friday night. The game will be made up on Sunday afternoon at 4.

Freezing rain caused power outages in the upstate New York town of Potsdam, N.Y. on Thursday, while snow, heavy wind and Arctic temperatures hit the region Friday. Yale's game at St. Lawrence, located just a few miles from Clarkson, is still scheduled for Saturday night at 7 -- when overnight temperatures are forecast to hit 14 degrees below zero.

St. Lawrence also postponed its Friday night men's hockey game with Brown until Sunday.

Yale had arrived in Potsdam on Thursday, but got word Friday afternoon that the storm forced the school to shut down for the remainder of the day.

It must be pretty miserable up there for games to be postponed. The North Country is used to heavy snow and ungodly temperatures. I recall traveling up there for a Yale series a few years back: the Friday night game at St. Lawrence went off with no problem, but a storm came in Saturday afternoon that dumped a good 12 inches of snow on the area. But, the game went on as scheduled.
