National Hockey League pause continues
The NHL announced that it will not resume its regular season until at least Tuesday.
The NHL and the NHLPA agreed to begin their holiday break last Wednesday due to the number of players and teams impacted by COVID-19. The original plan was to begin games again on Monday.
This means the entire slate of 14 games scheduled for Monday has been postponed including the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres against the New York Islanders.
