Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the NHL’s schedule is malleable by necessity. Yesterday it was announced that there would be changes to a large swath of games, including three Anaheim Ducks games.

Here are the changes:

  • Anaheim at Colorado, originally scheduled for March 31, is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 16 at 6 p.m. PT
  • Arizona at Anaheim, originally scheduled for March 16, is now scheduled for Saturday, March 20 at 7 p.m. PT
  • Anaheim at St. Louis, originally scheduled for March 27, is now scheduled for Sunday, March 28 at 2 p.m. PT
