Fans that cannot attend Saturday can go to the PNC Arena box office during regularly scheduled business hours to exchange their unused ticket to the Senators game for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any of the team’s remaining Friday night games (1/31, 2/7, 3/7). In addition to that option, season ticket holders retain the option to exchange their tickets via the season ticket holder exchange program. Finally, the team will offer $2 sodas and $1 popcorn for all fans in attendance on Saturday afternoon.
On Instagram Tuesday, team officials posted a picture of Lincoln Financial Field as the Hurricanes left the Wells Fargo Center after morning skate.
This is the second game the Hurricanes have had postponed this season due to winter weather. On Jan. 7, Carolina's game against the Sabres in Buffalo was postponed due to whiteout conditions and temperatures near zero.
The game is being played on the final day of the 17-day Olympic break in the regular-season schedule, Feb. 9-25.
The decision to play the game on Feb. 25, was made by the NHL in consultation with both the Sabres and the Hurricanes, as well as the NHL Players’ Association.
