The NHL has postponed the Boston Bruins' next two games after four additional players entered the league's COVID-19 Protocols.

The Bruins' game on Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres, who Boston played on Thursday night, and their game on Tuesday against the New York Islanders will not go ahead on the originally scheduled dates as a result.

The NHL says, "pending test results in the coming days," the Bruins are expected to be able to re-open team facilities next Wednesday.

Both the Bruins and Sabres cancelled practices on Thursday when one member of each organization entered the league's COVID-19 protocols. However, after testing and tracing, the game went ahead as scheduled and Bruins forward Sean Kuraly was placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list.
