Your Sports TV Schedule, 2/1: Blizzard Edition

The Blackhawks are scheduled to play in Columbus tonight. As of 7:30 a.m. CST, here was the weather forecast for Columbus, Ohio:

↵↵
Tonight: Freezing rain before 10pm, then rain or freezing rain between 10pm and midnight, then rain showers after midnight. Low around 30. Northeast wind 11 to 18 mph becoming southeast. Winds could gust as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New ice accumulation of 0.1 to 0.3 of an inch possible.
↵↵

That doesn't sound too conducive for people getting to and from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus for the game. On the other hand, with all that ice, they could play the game outdoors. There are other games that are at risk of cancellation in the huge area expected to be affected by tonight's blizzard; as of now, all these games are still scheduled.
