NHL reschedules Canes vs. Flyers, Senators

Posted January 21

The Carolina Hurricanes game against the Flyers Tuesday night in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday due to a winter storm, the National Hockey League announced.

Carolina will play the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The Hurricanes will face the Sabres on Thursday at 7 p.m. as scheduled. 

Friday night's game against the Ottawa Senators at PNC Arena has been moved to Saturday at noon. 

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.

    Just my guess and I have no evidence, but I think what you're seeing now is teams scared to death that they'll get sued if someone is in an accident trying to get to the game. It may have been concessions, but I doubt it.

    You may be right about the fights. I went to a Canes/Caps game and when fights broke out, it definitely spiced things up.

    That Flames/Canucks game has to be an NHL record. Three seconds into the game, there were 20 gloves on the ice, fists were flying, and 143 penalty minutes assessed. Tortorella tried to get into the Flames locker room after the first period, but a player pushed him out. Tortorella is going to miss six games during his suspension. Hot stuff.

    I saw the brawl on UTUBE, and Westgarth was indeed one of the instigators. I've never seen anything like it: literally seconds into the game, gloves were flying, as well as fists. Tortorella apparently objected to the Flames playing their 4th line against his first line.

    Regarding the Brawl - Calgary at Vancouver - Hartley was fined 25K and Tortorella was suspended for 15 days effective last Tuesday. Ex Cane Westgarth seemed to be the instigator.

    As the previous poster said. It's all about filling the seats and long lines at the concession stands. It sucks but there's nothing we can do about it.
    JGUNN- wow! I know fines will be delivered as well as suspensions, but that's what brought fans to the game to begin with. (Not saying it's right, just saying its reality). My wife is a perfect example. She hated hockey til I took her to a game. Gleason started wailing on some guy then body slammed him. She was hooked. Haha.

    I was thinking the same thing about the games being cancelled. I don't remember hearing this in other years, and there had to be snow storms back then as well.

    Off topic, but what do you guys think about the brawl between the Canucks and Flames? That was wild.

  • wlcat609 Jan 21, 6:21 p.m.

    Both teams and the officials could have made the game...problem is that the Flyers/NHL would have LOST MONEY by the lack of fans - not the season ticket holders but the 'walk up' crowd..and you and I both know that the NHL is more interested in the fan's MONEY than they are putting a quality product on the ice (more so with the CANES these days). What will be, will be - thank goodness I will be watching NHL hockey using the Center Ice package - probably the Avs who are playing extremely well now!!!

    I have never seen so many NHL cancellations. Usually these cities that are accustomed to winter weather don't cancel.
