[UPDATE: The NHL has announced Saturday’s game between the teams has also been postponed.]
The NHL has announced that Thursday’s game between the Stars and Lightning in Dallas has been postponed.
A large winter storm has cause significant power outages across Texas and already forced Stars games against the Predators earlier this week to be postponed.
Make-up dates for all three games will be announced at a later time.
The snowy conditions and cold temperatures have seen wind chills below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, putting a strain on the state’s power grid. Millions of residents are without power and more snow is expected Wednesday.
