Saturday's NHL game between Canadiens and Bruins at Montreal's Bell Centre postponed

 

The Montreal Canadiens' home game against the Boston Bruins scheduled for Saturday has been postponed.

 

The NHL announced the decision Friday morning.

 

No reason for the postponement was given, but the Canadiens played Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers without fans inside the Bell Centre at the request of Quebec health authorities due to the “spiralling rise of COVID-19 cases in the region.”

 

The Bruins are also dealing with a coronavirus outbreak that has seen six players placed into the league's protocol.

 

A total of 11 games have been postponed by the NHL this season, including six this week.

 

The Calgary Flames have seen four of their contests scratched since Monday with 18 players and 12 members of the team's staff in protocol.
