OSWEGO, New York (NEWS CENTER) - The Bowdoin men's hockey team was going through their usual pre-game routine before their NCAA first-round game when two unusual developments occurred: the game being postponed and their bus being involved in an accident.
A state of emergency was issued in Oswego County, resulting in the Oswego State campus being shut down and the Polar Bears game against the Lakers being postponed to Thursday at 3 p.m due to the winter storm.
While that was in the works, the team was having their pre-game meal at Canale's, a nearby restaurant.
According to the Bowdoin athletic department, the bus was parked on a hill close to the restaurant, but started to slowly slide down the hill given the ice that had accumulated. The bus eventually rolled into the restaurant's front awning.
