With the conference finals in full swing, the NHL bubble continues to work.

From Sept. 6-12, the NHL administered 1,357 tests and recorded zero positive results for COVID-19, the league announced Monday. This marks the eighth straight week that the league has recorded no positives for the coronavirus.

The streak dates back to the week before players departed for the bubbles and includes six weeks of postseason action thus far.

Players and staff from the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Islanders recently departed the bubble in Toronto at the conclusion of Round 2. They are now in the bubble in Edmonton.
