Lightning will now play Hurricanes on Saturday in newly scheduled NHL game
The NHL decided to move a game that was scheduled for late March to this Saturday night. The Tampa Bay Lightning will now travel to Carolina to hook up with the Hurricanes this weekend. The Canes were originally scheduled to finish up back-to-back with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday, but the NHL will move that game to another date. Carolina will still play Chicago in what would have been Game 1 of their two-game set on Friday, but the other will now be played later in the season. The Lightning was initially scheduled to play in Dallas against the Stars on Saturday, but that game and their game scheduled yesterday was postponed because of the severe winter weather storm pelting the city and causing power outages.
Tampa has already had four games postponed this season and has only played 14, whereas Chicago will have played 19 by Saturday. Perhaps the league is trying to even out their COVID and weather-ravaged slate that has become noticeably uneven. The NHL has clubs like Vancouver, who have already played 20 games this season, while others like the Devils have only played 11. The range of games played team to team varies wildly in this very strange NHL season.
