Ottawa Senators beat reporter Bruce Garrioch first reported this morning that the Senators visit to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night will be postponed due to the 50% crowd capacity limits. It’s being verified. It means the Canucks will now have seven games to reschedule and their next game will be Tuesday night in Florida. That gruesome schedule here.
It looks like the NHL is taking extra advantage of getting out of the 2022 Winter Olympics, a development that made those at HQ in NYC overjoyed.
It appears they’re going to cram as many games into that Olympic window as they can. Gee, that might not backfire, hey? With Covid being so predictable and everything. They also plan on adding an extra week at the end of the regular season.
The Vancouver Canucks practice at 11 am today and we’ll be getting reaction.
Sounds like the game in Vancouver will be postponed now because of capacity limits. Have to wait and see. That would mean the club's next game is Monday in Edmonton. #Sens
