“I just think all the news sort of swirling around games getting cancelled, teams shutting down have crept its way in. It’s a little tough to stay focused when you don’t know if you are going to play or not,” said Zac Aston-Reese.

New Jersey’s game on Thursday against the Montreal Canadiens has been previously postponed.

Tickets for Tuesday’s original game will be valid for the rescheduled date.
