Kevin McGran, thetorontostar.com --- If the NHL goes to Sochi, the league will take a 17-day break to accommodate the Winter Olympics, the Star has learned.
A source told the Star that a leaked copy of the Florida Panthers’ 2013-14 NHL schedule suggests the league is going to take time off in February to accommodate the Games.
The Panthers are not commenting on the schedule that is making its way through Twitter but a copy of it was obtained by the Miami Herald.
On it, the Panthers play Feb. 7 and then again Feb. 27.
The NHL is expected to announce its participation in the Olympics this week and release a full schedule.
