As noted by the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), the Dallas Stars and NHL received criticism after the decision was made to postpone Monday's game versus the Nashville Predators only one hour before puck drop due to extreme and dangerous winter weather conditions.
That won't be a concern on Tuesday.
The Stars announced during the morning hours that Tuesday's matchup against Nashville is also postponed.
"After further discussions with Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson's office, tonight's game between the Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center is also being postponed due to the continued power outages in the Dallas area caused by severe weather," the Stars explained in the prepared statement. "A make-up date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed."
While the American Airlines Center hasn't lost power during the storm, tens of thousands of residents in the area have been without power throughout a period that included temperatures dropping to minus-1 degrees.
The Stars are scheduled to host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday and Saturday, but more snow is expected to hit the Dallas area later on Tuesday and early Wednesday. The statuses of those games are up in the air as of Tuesday afternoon.
Nashville, meanwhile, moves on to play at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday and Saturday.
