NHL postpones Islanders’ next 2 games due to COVID-19

The NHL announced Saturday that the NHL had postponed the New York Islanders games through Tuesday. This was due to COVID-19-related cases within the NHL. The Islanders were originally scheduled to play at both the Rangers and the Flyers on Sunday.

Last week, the Islanders lost several of their players in their first game at UBS Arena. The Islanders have eight COVID-19 Protocols players. The league also cited the possibility of more cases due to spread as a reason for the postponement.

The league is currently reviewing the Islanders’ schedule, and will reschedule both of these games. New York will host San Jose Thursday, the next game. Since a 5-2-2 start, the Isles have lost eight games in a row, all in regulation.
