According to the Samantha Pell of The Washington Post, the Washington Capitals will not be the opponent for the Carolina Hurricanes’ Stadium Series game. It was reported earlier on Saturday that the Capitals were “most likely” an opponent for the February 20, 2021 game at Carter-Finley Stadium. The official announcement will come during tonight’s Los Angeles Kings/Colorado Avalanche Stadium Series matchup in Colorado Springs at Falcon Stadium.

Adam Gold of 99.9 Fan in Raleigh reported Saturday afternoon that the Hurricanes are hosting the Stadium Series game next season at Carter-Finley Stadium, home of the NC State Wolfpack football team. The Capitals were “most likely” noted to be the opponent or the Pittsburgh Penguins.

If the Capitals were indeed playing, it would have marked their second Stadium Series game and fourth overall outdoor game: 2011 Winter Classic in Pittsburgh, 2015 Winter Classic at Nationals Park against the Chicago Blackhawks, and 2018 Stadium Series game at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

NoVa Caps reported earlier this month that the Hurricanes asked the PNC Arena landlord to contribute $200-250K for a potential 2021 Stadium Series game.
