Remember that unfortunate incident at PNC Arena on Monday? You know, when a leak in the cooling system rendered the ice unplayable, and the ‘Canes had to postpone their game against Detroit?
Well, the game has a new date. From the NHL:
The postponed game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Detroit Red Wings, originally scheduled to be played on Dec. 19, has been rescheduled for Monday, March 27, 2017 at PNC Arena, the National Hockey League announced today.
The start time for the game will be 7 p.m. ET.
The result here is that Carolina and Detroit will play a back-to-back set on the 27th and 28th, both at PNC. For the ‘Canes, it abbreviates what would’ve been a nice little break — they play New Jersey at home on the 25th, and would’ve had two nights off — and for Detroit, it makes for a very busy end of March.
The Red Wings host Minnesota on the 26th, then play in Carolina on the 27th and 28th — the rare three-games-in-three-nights stretch.
