For the second time in two weeks, the Carolina Hurricanes have had to incur a game postponement, due to inclement weather.
On Tuesday, the NHL announced the Flyers and Hurricanes won't play at Philly's Wells Fargo Center, due a snowstorm that has engulfed the Northeast. That move also prompted the rescheduling of the 'Canes Friday game against the Senators.
The game against the Flyers will be made up Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET on FOX Sports South, with Hurricanes LIVE pregame beginning at 5:30 p.m. With the Hurricanes then playing the Sabres on Thursday, Friday's scheduled game vs. the Senators was moved to Saturday at noon.
NHL rules stipulate that no club can play on three consecutive days.
On Jan. 7, a Hurricanes contest with the Buffalo Sabres was postponed, due to extreme cold.
Wednesday's game can be seen on Dish Network channels 450 (SD) and 9573 (HD); DirecTV channels 645 (SD) and 645-1 (HD) and AT&T 726 (SD) and 1726 (HD)
