The NHL postponed Tuesday's game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning due to COVID-19 protocols, the league announced Monday.

Carolina had three games postponed last week. The club currently has five players on the COVID-19 protocol list, and general manager Don Waddell recently confirmed three players tested positive for the virus. One test, however, produced a false positive.

The league also released other schedule changes, including new dates for each of the Hurricanes' previously postponed games.
