The NHL said in a statement that the reason for the change “is in the interest of Player Safety due to Sunday’s forecast of sunlight with no cloud cover and unseasonable warm temperatures.”

The New Jersey Devils will play the Washington Capitals on Sunday at 2 p.m. The game initially was scheduled for 7 p.m.
