Stars - Predators game postponed due to snowy weather, not COVID

Liam McHugh, Anson Carter and Patrick Sharp discuss the latest NHL power rankings, where Mathieu Joseph and Tampa sit at No. 1 while Carolina looks to remain hot and keep rising after adding Cedric Paquette.

[UPDATE: The NHL has announced that Tuesday’s Predators-Stars game has also been postponed. A makeup date will be announced as soon as it can be rescheduled.]

Snowy weather in Texas, not COVID, caused Monday’s Nashville Predators - Dallas Stars game to be postponed. It’s possible that Tuesday’s Predators - Stars game could also be postponed to conserve power as Texas deals with significant, and unusual, weather challenges.

Specifically, concerns about power outages/power conservation drove the decision to postpone the Stars - Predators game. The league announced that make-up dates will be announced when possible.

(The Athletic’s Sean Shapiro ranks among those who report that Tuesday’s Predators - Stars game could be postponed, too.)

To put things mildly, this all came together late. Shapiro notes that players were informed of the decision while they were getting ready in the locker room. That makes sense, as the Stars tweeted these photos of players arriving, and were counting down to gametime.

Strange, and sometimes snowy, times.
