The Bruins recently had to postpone multiple games after several players entered the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. It’s led to the rescheduling of four contests, which the team announced via Twitter on Monday.
Two games postponed last week will now be played in April. The Bruins’ game against the Buffalo Sabres, originally scheduled for March 20, has been moved to Tuesday, April 20. Additionally, their game against the Islanders originally scheduled for March 23 has been moved to Monday, May 10.
The Bruins’ schedule changes caused a domino effect, in which two other games between the B’s and Capitals also had to be moved. The game originally planned for April 20 has been moved up to Sunday, April 11, and a game originally planned for April 11 has been moved back to Tuesday, May 11.
Here’s the full rundown of schedule changes:
March 20 April 20
March 23 May 10
April 20 April 11
April 11 May 11
Last week’s games had to be postponed after four Boston players entered the COVID-19 protocol, which came after B’s forward Sean Kuraly landed on the list. Winger Brad Marchand was also recently added to the protocol, but it didn’t trigger any further postponements. The shorthanded Bruins lost to the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Sunday, amid controversy surrounding a disallowed goal.
