Some family joins bubble, NHL waiting on Canadian government
Deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press on Saturday that Canadian family members of players, coaches and staff on the teams that reached the conference finals are free to enter the bubble immediately as long as they adhere to quarantine regulations spelled out before the start of the playoffs. Daly said the league hasn’t yet heard back from the government on additional exemptions for family members who are not Canadian citizens.
This is obviously a potentially dangerous addition to the NHL bubble. They’ve done a very good job so far, and because of that I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that they thought this through.
I’m putting this together before the Islanders face the Flyers in the third game 7 over 2 days. The Colorado - Dallas game was a lot of fun, while I didn’t get to see the Vegas - Canucks game.
Hopefully the game to decide who plays Tampa in the ECF is fun.
