The Carolina Hurricanes announced on Monday that defensemen Brett Pesce and Tony DeAngelo have entered COVID-19 protocol one day after the team lost 4-2 to the Washington Capitals at PNC Arena on Sunday.

The Hurricanes are set to travel to Dallas on Monday ahead of their clash against the Stars on Tuesday. Pesce and DeAngelo will quarantine in Raleigh.

This does raise eyebrows for the Capitals, who played the ‘Canes Sunday afternoon. Center Lars Eller returned to the lineup in the win over Carolina after contracting the virus during the team’s West Coast road trip earlier this month. He was required to quarantine in Anaheim, California, for ten days as a result of the NHL’s protocol.

The Capitals are back in action on Tuesday (7 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington) at FLA Live Arena visiting the Florida Panthers.

    More Covid. Let’s hope our boys didn’t catch it from either DeAngelo or Pesce. Meanwhile, I now have a co-worker in Covid protocol.
