The Flyers will take the ice in Washington tomorrow night as scheduled but that’ll be it for this week, as the league has postponed more games due to what appears to be something of a Covid outbreak. The Devils cancellations affect the Flyers directly, but the Sabres and Wild will also see games postponed this week. From the league’s official release:

The National Hockey League announced today that two additional Buffalo Sabres games (Feb. 11 and Feb. 13 vs. Washington); three more New Jersey Devils contests (Feb. 11 and Feb. 13 vs. Philadelphia and Feb. 15 vs. Boston) and two additional Minnesota Wild games (Feb. 11 vs. St. Louis and Feb. 13 vs. Los Angeles) have been postponed as a result of the NHL’s COVID Protocols. A decision on the three teams’ resumption of practice and game play will be made by the League’s, NHLPA’s and Clubs’ medical groups in the coming days.

No word yet, obviously, as to when these games will be played. For now, let’s all cross our fingers that all of the players, staff, and families affected by this current cluster of infections come out unscathed.
