The postponement could allow the Capitals to play the division rival with all of its star players back. The Capitals are currently without Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and TJ Oshie due to COVID protocol.
The game’s new date will be announced later but could happen in February.
Andy Strickland reported earlier in the night the NHL would make up the games during its break for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
