Word from the Flyers beat writers earlier in the day was that the Carolina Hurricanes were hoping to avoid a cancellation of tonight's contest in South Philly and play it as originally scheduled at 7:00 pm. Snow trumped the Hurricanes. The NHL announced shortly after 3:25 pm that the game will be postponed.
The National Hockey League today announced that tonight’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed. The date on which the game will be made up has yet to be determined.

No new date has been released yet.
Unrelated, Garth Snow had an 6-3 record with a 1.82 GAA against the Carolina Hurricanes throughout his career.
There may not be hockey at the Wells Fargo Center this evening but maybe there will be a snowball fight as the Flyers official Twitter account suggested:
@NHLCanes Snowball fight. Parking lot. Be there.
