The NHL has postponed Tuesday’s matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena, the league announced Monday.

The game has been rescheduled to Feb. 22.

Last week, the NHL moved the Hurricanes’ games through Saturday, which included a two-game series against the Florida Panthers, due to COVID-19 issues.

The Hurricanes have had five players placed on the league’s COVID-19 protocol list.

In addition to the postponement, the NHL announced the rescheduling of six other games:

• Carolina at Nashville, originally Jan. 19, is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 2 at 8 p.m. ET .

• Florida at Carolina, originally Jan. 21, is now scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. ET.

• Florida at Carolina, originally Jan. 23, is now scheduled for Sunday, March 7 at 5 p.m. ET.

• Columbus at Carolina, originally Feb. 16, is now scheduled for Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. ET.

• Florida at Tampa Bay, originally Feb. 16, is now scheduled for Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. ET.

• Carolina at Tampa Bay, originally Feb. 22, is now scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m. ET.
