The postponements of four games to be played Thursday and Friday have led the NHL to push back the potential completion of the second-round schedule by as many as two days, should three of the series require a Game 7.


Dallas-Colorado and Vegas-Vancouver are both scheduled to play Game 7 on Sept. 4, if necessary. Game 7 of the Flyers-Islanders series is scheduled for Sept. 5.

The playoffs will then shift to Edmonton, where the conference and Stanley Cup finals will be played.
