The game between the Detroit Red Wings and New York Islanders at UBS Arena on Wednesday was postponed by the NHL due to COVID-19 concerns.
Nine other games were postponed because of attendance restrictions in cities in Canada: the Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets at Calgary Flames, each scheduled for Friday; the Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 3; the Washington Capitals at Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 4; Toronto at Montreal on Jan. 6; the Buffalo Sabres at Montreal and Seattle Kraken at Winnipeg on Jan. 8; and the Columbus Blue Jackets at Montreal and the Minnesota Wild at Winnipeg on Jan. 10.
Makeup dates for those games have not been announced.
Also, a game between the Boston Bruins and Canadiens scheduled at Montreal on Jan. 12 now will be played at Boston that day. A makeup date for Boston to play at Montreal will be announced.
Of the 80 NHL games postponed this season, one has been made up (the Ottawa Senators defeated the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in a shootout Dec. 6 in a game scheduled for Nov. 16), and one has been rescheduled (the New York Rangers will host the Islanders on March 17 in a game scheduled for Nov. 28).
The NHL resumed play after the holiday break with three games Tuesday: the Canadiens at the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Vegas Golden Knights at the Los Angeles Kings, and the Arizona Coyotes at the San Jose Sharks.
The Islanders are next scheduled to play against the Sabres at home Thursday. The Red Wings next play at home against the Capitals on Friday.
The NHL and NHL Players’ Association agreed Sunday to allow teams to have a taxi squad with a maximum of six players available to be added to the roster to minimize the chance for further postponements or teams having to play with a limited lineup.
