According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Washington Capitals’ game against the Philadelphia Flyers scheduled for Tuesday at Capital One Arena will likely be postponed after another Flyers player tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday night.
Flyers defenseman Travis Sanheim, who did not play in the team’s 7-4 win over the Capitals on Sunday, was added to the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.
After the Capitals’ two-game series against the Buffalo Sabres this week were postponed due to COVID-19 issues with the Sabres, the Capitals are not scheduled to play again until Sunday when they will open a two-game series against the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena (3 PM ET, NBC).
Capitals forward Jakub Vrana was added to COVID-19 protocol on Saturday night.
This is the 19th game that the NHL has postponed due to COVID-19.
Tonight’s game likely postponed. https://t.co/JrIjxU1G3K
