Red Wings-Hurricanes ppd.

RALEIGH, N.C. — A scheduled game between Carolina and Detroit was postponed because of unplayable ice.

A Freon leak in the cooling system at PNC Arena was discovered earlier in the day. The issue was fixed, but not in time to restart the game. NHL rules state a game cannot start less than 22 hours before a team's next scheduled contest, and the Red Wings are set to play at Tampa Bay at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday night.

Carolina announced a delay on Twitter about 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of 7 p.m., then publicized the postponement around 8:45 p.m.

Hurricanes President Don Waddell said a makeup date would probably be decided on Tuesday or Wednesday.
