The NHL announced eight more changes to the Washington Capitals’ schedule on Tuesday afternoon. This Saturday’s game against the New York Rangers at Capital One Arena has been pushed up to 12:30 PM ET and the Capitals will host the New Jersey Devils on Sunday at 7 PM ET instead of the Rangers as originally scheduled.

On Sunday, March 7, the Capitals will host the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 PM ET instead of hosting the Devils as originally scheduled. The Flyers-Capitals game scheduled for February 9 was postponed after Flyers captain Claude Giroux tested positive for COVID-19.

The Capitals’ scheduled game against the Rangers at Capital One Arena on Sunday will be made up on Saturday, March 20 at 7 PM ET.

After the Capitals’ game against the Boston Bruins at Capital One Arena was rescheduled for Saturday, April 10, the NHL moved it back to Sunday, April 11 at 7 PM ET.
