The Boston Bruins have caught another stray from the National Hockey League’s ongoing COVID issues, with a Feb. 15 meeting with the New Jersey Devils among the seven games officially postponed by the NHL on Monday.

This latest postponement comes with the Devils on the shelf since Jan. 31 due to a coronavirus outbreak, and wipes away yet another scheduled home game off the board for the Bruins, with the B’s two-game set against the Sabres postponed and rescheduled for later this season this past weekend.

With those aforementioned Sabres meetings moved to March and April, respectively, and with this Feb. 15 meeting moved to a date to be determined, the Bruins now have just one home game scheduled for all of February (vs. Devils on Feb. 18).

That’s probably no big issue for the Bruins, all things considered, as they’ve rattled off a 4-1-2 record on the road this season.

The B’s are back in action Wednesday night against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
