The Dallas Stars had a severe outbreak of coronavirus during training camp. 17 different players contracted the disease, forcing the Stars out of action for the first week of the regular season.
Friday, the NHL announced Dallas’s new schedule. The Stars will play their first game of the season on Friday, January 22, against the Nashville Predators and make up the other four games later in the season.
The reason why we’re writing is that the Stars’ new schedule impacts the Capitals schedule as well.
