Over the last couple of weeks we've seen some COVID outbreaks across the NHL.
It's resulted in some games being postponed and some teams hardly playing at all.
So much so that the league is even considering basing the playoffs on point percentage if games have to be canceled.
Now we might have our first problem in Canada.
The NHL has just announced that the Canadiens-Oilers game for tonight has been pushed back until 8PM EST so the Oilers COVID tests are complete.
It seems there might be some concern about a possible positive test or multiple.
More details to come.
The start time of tonight's Oilers-Canadiens game has been changed from 7 p.m. ET to 8 p.m. ET. https://t.co/bgrAnSaJG2
