— The Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins have canceled their morning skates because of the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers.

Bruins spokesman Matt Chmura said there's no announcement yet on whether to proceed with Friday night's NHL game.

The Boston Red Sox are also on hold for their night game against the Kansas City Royals. Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said the Royals have been in town since Wednesday night and spent their off day in the city on Thursday.

The bombings on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. Police identified two suspects. One was killed during a shootout with police and the other was being sought during a massive manhunt across the city and surrounding areas.
