The National Hockey League announced on Friday that the Boston Bruins’ next two games, on Saturday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 23, have been postponed after four additional players entered the COVID-19 protocol. The Bruins will be allowed to reopen their facilities and resume practice next Wednesday, March 24.

The news comes one day after Bruins forward Sean Kuraly became the first player this week to enter the COVID protocol. Boston cancelled its morning skate on Thursday but ended up playing Thursday night’s game against the Sabres.

The Bruins won 4-1 and suffered further injury blows in the process.
