The Boston Bruins will not be traveling to Montreal for Saturday night's game against the rival Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

But Thursday's Bruins game in Boston against the Colorado Avalanche was postponed later Friday. It's the first local professional sports game to be called off in the current outbreak.

The make-up date for the game hasn't been scheduled, according to the Bruins' announcement.
