The NHL decided yesterday morning to move today’s outdoor game in Lake Tahoe between the Flyers and Boston Bruins from an 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET start time to a 4:30 p.m. PT/7:30 p.m. ET start due to what’s expected to be another sunny day.
The NHL originally moved the game one hour earlier because of sun concerns during the week.
This created a scheduling domino effect. The New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals game was moved from 7 p.m. ET to 2 p.m. ET to fill the gap created by the rescheduling of the outdoor game. The Bruins vs. Flyers game was shifted to NBCSN.
“This has been the most difficult weather circumstance we’ve had — and it’s a beautiful day,” Bettman said. “The cloud cover is everywhere but where the sun is.”
