NHL reschedules 27 games in East Division

The NHL did a massive rewrite of its East Division schedule Saturday, shifting 27 games to accommodate new dates for postponed New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres games.

As of Friday night, the Devils had 17 players on the COVID-19 protocol list, which can mean, among other reasons, an initial positive test, someone showing symptoms or possible exposure to someone who tested positive.

The Devils will have a fourth game postponed and rescheduled.

The Sabres had five players in protocol, plus the team announced that coach Ralph Krueger had tested positive. Four of their games had been postponed.

The Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild also have had games postponed, though those have yet to be rescheduled. All told, 27 NHL games have been postpone
