NHL Potentially Postponing Several Games On Friday

The NHL is preparing for its annual holiday break, where no games will be played for three days from December 24th to December 26th, with the league action starting back up on the 27th. In the coming days, though, the NHL has a jam-packed schedule of 28 games over the next three days.

That may all change now due to the impending Winter Storm, Elliot, that is expected to hit several parts of North America and cause severe damage.

According to Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff, the league is considering postponing at least the Friday night game between the Sabres and Lightning, and maybe more.

As per Seravalli:

”Hearing #Sabres / #GoBolts game on Friday night is likely to be postponed with impending winter storm.”

‘’May not be the only game on the slate postponed – aside from safety issue for fans, #NHL doesn’t want to teams being stranded for holidays.‘’

This storm is expected to bring significant snowfall, freezing rain, and high winds to a large portion of Canada and the United States, affecting travel in those regions. The NHL is left with a difficult decision as they must decide by tomorrow to give teams and fans enough of a heads-up.

With it being this close to the holidays, it should make the decision much easier to postpone as many games as the league has to.
