Red Wings and Hurricanes Literally Have to Wait For the Ice to Freeze

I’m so late to this, but I can’t pass up a Mighty Ducks call out. From ESPN:

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 against the Lightning at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.

Coach McKay was the first to come up with this sick one-liner during D2 when Gordon Bombay was having a mental breakdown. I’m not sure I would’ve let Bombay back on the bench if I was a Duck. Luckily for him the team captain Charlie Conway was also the coach’s pet.
