The cold weather is getting to everyone and it is starting to affect different sporting events as well. The NHL has had to postpone one game so far due to a raging blizzard. ABC News reported on Jan. 7, 2014, that Tuesday night's game between the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes has been postponed thanks to the blizzard in western New York.

As of now, no makeup date has been determined.

The city of Buffalo has been dealt near-zero temperatures, heavy snow, high winds, and more troubles that have caused numerous major highways and streets to shut down.

It was back in 2000 when the Buffalo Sabres last had a game postponed. They were able to play the following day.

The NHL blizzard postponement comes as Carolina has rolled off four consecutive victories. They had already arrived in Buffalo before the game was put on hold, but the weather didn't even allow the teams to hold their morning pregame skate-arounds.

The Canes will spend the night in Buffalo and travel back home on Wednesday.

Rescheduling the game could lead to a bit of a problem since both teams have busy schedules already, but the NHL's Olympic break will happen in early February.
