The NHL has postponed Tuesday night’s scheduled game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers because of COVID-19 issues with the Flyers, the federation said Monday night.
A spike in infections caused by the omicron variant of the coronavirus has led to frequent postponements in recent weeks. Three matches scheduled for Monday night have been postponed. The Hurricanes-Flyers game was the second scheduled for Tuesday to be postponed and the 104th postponement this season.
Philadelphia last played on Saturday night, a win in extra time against San Jose. Captain Claude Giroux, forward Travis Konecny and defensive linemen Travis Sanheim and Ivan Provorov are sidelined due to health and safety regulations.
The league didn’t immediately announce a set-up date for Tuesday night’s game. The New York Islanders’ scheduled game in Calgary on Tuesday night has also been postponed.
