The Montreal Canadiens’ next three games have been postponed as a result of NHL COVID-19 protocol, the league announced Tuesday.

The Canadiens’ game against the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Monday was postponed shortly before the opening faceoff after Montreal forwards Joel Armia and Jesperi Kotkaniemi entered COVID-19 protocol.
