Taylor Hall, Curtis Lazar enter COVID-19 protocol


A nightmare week for the Boston Bruins got worse Saturday as the team's COVID-19 outbreak continues.

Forwards Taylor Hall and Curtis Lazar were added to the long list of B's players in COVID protocol, the team announced. They join Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, Craig Smith, Trent Frederic, Anton Blidh, Jeremy Swayman, and a staff member.

As a result of the Bruins' outbreak, the NHL has postponed all four of their games through Sunday, Dec. 26. Their next game is scheduled against the Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden on Dec. 27.

A recent surge in COVID-19 cases has led to postponements throughout the league. The Nashville Predators also had their games postponed through Holiday Break, and three additional game postponements were announced Saturday.
