The New Jersey Devils are said to be the last competing team to have to postpone one of their games due to COVID-19 cases.
This is what former player and hockey expert for the NHL Network Kevin Weekes reported on Monday. According to him, Tuesday’s meeting between the Devils and the Pittsburgh Penguins would suffer.
The Sportsnet channel also indicated that several positive cases had been identified with the New Jersey team. Thus, more than one match could be postponed.
The Penguins play Monday night against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. They must also face the Devils on Thursday.
New Jersey, which sits fifth in the Eastern Division after nine games, faced the Sabers in Buffalo on Sunday.
