Tuesday’s game between Philadelphia and the host Washington Capitals has been postponed because of COVID-19 issues on the Flyers’ roster, multiple media outlets reported.

The NHL has yet to make the announcement on the game.

The Flyers would be the fifth NHL team to be placed on pause, joining the Buffalo Sabres, Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota Wild and New Jersey Devils.
