The NHL has rescheduled Saturday's game between the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning due an ongoing power crisis in the state of Texas.

The league previously postponed Dallas's games against the Nashville Predators, originally scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, along with another contest against the Lightning that was set for Thursday.

A power crisis has affected the vast majority of the state of Texas, spurred by a winter storm beginning on Feb. 11 that has caused several outages, rendering many without drinking water, heat or electricity. President Joe Biden declared a state of emergency on Feb. 14 but it's done little to curtail the power outages, with some residents scrambling to find shelter, food and water.

"Every source of power that the state of Texas has has been compromised," Governor Greg Abbott said.

The NHL has yet to set a date for rescheduling the 2020 Stanley Cup rematch.
