After a massive outbreak of coronavirus in the Vancouver Canucks camp, where more than 20 people have become infected, the National Hockey League is ready to consider the option of holding the playoffs in a bubble. Recall that the Stanley Cup 2020 was held in just such conditions, and the “bubbles” were created in the Canadian cities of Toronto and Edmonton.
“Of course, this is not what everyone would want. But this option will certainly be discussed. It all depends on what the epidemiological situation in the world will be at that moment. Of course, the bubble is not the best option, but it has to be borne in mind, “- said the well-known columnist for the Canadian TV company Sportsnet Elliott Friedman on the air of the program Hockey Night In Canada.
Recall that part of the NHL teams this season faced massive coronavirus infection cases, which led to a change in the schedule and postponement of matches. The end of the NHL regular season has already been pushed back from the original date of May 8 to May 11.
