For the second time this season, the Carolina Hurricanes have had a road game postponed due to winter weather.
The NHL opted to postpone Tuesday’s 7 p.m. game between the Flyers and Hurricanes in Philadelphia. It's the second time this season the Hurricanes have had a game postponed: Carolina’s game on Jan. 7 in Buffalo was rescheduled to Feb. 25 — infringing on the last day of the Olympic break — because of bad weather in Western New York.
As for rescheduling this game, it's as sticky as fitting in a game in Buffalo. The best chance to play the game might be March 10, which would force Carolina to play in Philadelphia a day before they host the Rangers in Raleigh. The issue there is Carolina would be playing four games in five nights and bump up the Hurricanes’ total games in March to 17, including 14 from March 7 to the end of the month.
Here is the release from the team:
