The Stanley Cup Playoffs will be delayed by at least one day.

The NHL released its latest round of rescheduled games on Sunday, and 19 contests have been either moved to a new date or given a new start time. Two regular-season games are now slated for May 11, a date the league previously earmarked for the first day of the postseason.

Most of Sunday's updates were due to COVID-19 postponements, except for a game between the St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings that needed to be pushed after inclement weather prevented the Kings from flying out of Denver earlier this month.

Here are the games that have been rescheduled to a different date:

All times in p.m. EST.
