Video: Meteor shower damages hockey arena in Russia

A meteor shower in Russia is to blame for the potential postponement of the Kontinental Hockey League playoffs.

On Friday, a barrage of meteor's rained down on buildings and caused over 700 people to seek medical attention.

Arena Traktor, the Chelyabinsk home to the Traktor hockey club, was heavily damaged during the bizarre occurrence and will need to be "inspected and assessed" before playoff games can be hosted there.

Traktor wasn't scheduled to play a home game there until Feb. 21, but youth league matches have been postponed for this weekend. Traktor is slated to complete its regular season with a road trip to Magnitogorsk before hosting Gagarin Cup playoff games.

However, that may not happen if inspectors find the building can't be repaired in time.
