There are scary tornadoes bearing down on central and western Massachusetts this Wednesday night, and while hockey is suddenly on the back-burner for thousands of Boston Bruins fans as a result, it won't fall on the back-burner for the local NBC affiliate.
Channel 7 in Boston, the NBC affiliate, will indeed switch to Game 1 coverage in time for puck drop, expected around 8:20 p.m. ET. Meanwhile, tornado coverage will switch to their sister station, CW56.
That's good news for Bruins fans looking to watch their team in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in decades. For fans impacted by nature this evening, hockey is the last thing on the mind. Stay safe.
