NHL postpones Flyers-Carolina game because of COVID-19



Philadelphia Flyers

Because of COVID-related issues affecting the Philadelphia Flyers, their home game Tuesday against surging Carolina has been postponed, the NHL announced.

No makeup date has been set yet.

The league’s decision is curious because the Flyers had only four players on the COVID protocol list Monday, and interim coach Mike Yeo said he expected some players to come off the list for Tuesday’s game.

Last week, the league made the Flyers play when they had six players on the COVID list.

The Flyers (13-15-7) have lost five straight, and they are next scheduled to play Thursday in Boston (19-11-2), which has won five of its last six, including Monday’s 7-3 victory in Washington. The Bruins hold the Eastern Conference’s final wild-card spot with 40 points — seven more than the Flyers, who have played three more games.

Travis Sanheim came off the Flyers’ COVID list Monday, and Justin Braun went on it. The Flyers were hoping Travis Konecny, Claude Giroux and Ivan Provorov would come off the list Tuesday.

All tickets for Tuesday’s game will be valid once a new date for the game is selected. Fans also have the option of exchanging their tickets to another game this season.
