That pucks. The NHL announced Thursday that it will postpone its opening day two weeks as the 19-day-old player lockout shows no sign of ending before Oct. 11, the previously planned start of the season. The delay—the new opening day will be Oct. 24—means 82 games will be canceled. Players and owners are currently at a stalemate on how to divide hockey-related revenue; previously, players were receiving 57 percent and the owners were receiving 43 percent. Sadly, hockey fans are used to this by now. This is the third time in 18 years that the NHL has canceled games because of a lockout.
