The Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators matchup has been postponed, the NHL has announced. This is due to severe winter weather that is occurring in the Dallas area.
The game was originally scheduled for Monday, Feb. 15. However, the NHL decided to reschedule it for the next night.
Consequently, the rescheduled matchup was postponed until a later date due to the winter weather the Dallas area has experienced over the past few days.
In addition to the snow, power outages in Dallas have been a major problem.
How the Winter Weather Is Affecting Dallas
Areas in the Dallas and Forth Worth areas have both experienced inclement weather over the last few days. Snow and power outages have been the biggest problem both locations are receiving. The snow has accumulated up to several inches.
In addition, icy roads have been reoccurring, making travel extremely dangerous.
On top of that, low temperatures and power outages are creating a problem for the two Texas locations.
While a new date has not yet been announced by the NHL, both teams will be more than ready to hit the ice again. Fortunately for each respective team, that will come very soon.
The Preds will take the ice on the road against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Feb. 18 as they look to get back on the right track to winning more games.
Right now, the Preds currently sit at 7th in the Central Division with a 6-9-0 win-loss-tie record. With each game at stake, it can be certain that this hockey organization is hungry for more wins to improve their record and earn a playoff spot.
However, for the Blue Jackets, they will also be searching for a big win and pick up a much-needed two points. They currently sit at 5th in the division with a 7-6-4 record.
Both the Preds and the Blue Jackets will certainly be coming into that game fighting hard for a win to help improve their playoff chances.
As for the Stars, they’re only one rank above the Preds in the Central Division. The Stars hold a 5-3-4 record at this point.
In addition, the Stars are looking to break an ugly five game losing streak tomorrow against a tough Tampa Bay Lightning team.
The Lightning are certainly looking like the ideal winning team all the other NHL teams may be looking at. Sitting at 1st in the Central Division, the Lightning have won the last two games. This has provided them with a 10-3-1 record so far.
The Stars need to begin winning games to avoid getting their hopes of making it to the playoffs shattered. Their matchup against the Lightning prove that it will be a difficult game. But the Stars know they will have to work hard as a team, playing well both offensively and defensively to pick up a huge win.
