No, Canada! – 12/21 Pens at Marlies Postponed
December 17, 2021Posted by on
Includes the December 21 game the Penguins were supposed to play up North. Instead, the Pens will just head to Rochester where they will play the Americans on Wednesday.
Logistically, this is a nightmare. The Pens and Marlies play four times this season, two home and two away. Wilkes-Barre isn’t scheduled to go back to Toronto till March 23. That’s a Wednesday. My guess is that it will likely be a back to back to some type, either a Tuesday-Wednesday or a Wednesday-Thursday. If they do Thursday, they have to make an exception because the League eliminated four games in five nights a few years back. After the Pens head to Rochester, they are finished with the Americans this season, so it’s not like they can just cross over the next time they play Rochester, after Wednesday there is no next time.
Probably worse for Toronto, because their two games at Grand Rapids this weekend were also postponed. Again, logistical nightmares.
More tomorrow after the Hershey game. I just can’t commit to putting a preview series out when everything is so volatile.
