The NHL announced on Saturday that Sunday’s game between the New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena has been moved from 7 PM ET to 2 PM ET and will be broadcasted nationally on NBC. In addition, Sunday’s outdoor game at Lake Tahoe between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Boston Bruins got moved from 2 PM ET to 7:30 PM ET.
The decision was made out of the Flyers’ and Bruins’ players’ desires to get out of the sunlight with no cloud covers and expected warm temperatures at Lake Tahoe.
This is the second time in as many days that the time of the outdoor game has been moved. It was originally scheduled for a 3 PM ET puck drop. The game can be seen on NBCSN.
After Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers, the Capitals are 0-3-2 in afternoon games this season.
