NHL reveals changes to Montreal Canadiens schedule


Just before the game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, March 22, we learned that two Canadiens players had been placed on the COVID-19 absence list. This news not only postponed this game, but the next three on the schedule in Montreal: two more against the Oilers and one against the Senators who were to follow them on Saturday. Today, the NHL announced the revised schedule for the three affected teams.

The original plan before the shutdown was for Montreal to play in Ottawa on Tuesday, March 30, but with the Oilers still in the east after a game in Toronto, the decision was made to have them make the short drive back to Montreal. to catch up with one. of these games. The other two that had been in the series will be played on May 10 and 11, extending the length of the Canadiens’ initial regular season schedule by three days.

Montreal’s final 25 games will be played over a 43-day span. The most common opponent in that streak will be the Edmonton Oilers, with six of the nine games of the season remaining, starting with Tuesday’s game to Bell Center.
