Islanders postpone 2 games due to COVID protocol

The Islanders have had two games scheduled for this week postponed after the Sabres, late Tuesday, became the latest NHL team to be shut down due to players in COVID protocol.

The league announced the Sabres have been shut down through at least Monday after two players were added to the COVID-19 protocol list. Buffalo played two games over the weekend against the Devils, who are off through at least Saturday with 10 players on the list.

The Islanders’ games against the Sabres, scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday at Nassau Coliseum, were postponed. Tuesday’s game already had been postponed because the snowstorm that hit the East Coast postponed the Sabres’ flight until Tuesday, which altered COVID-19 testing and contact tracing and led to the postponement.
