The Florida Panthers could have difficulties in Edmonton for game three of the Stanley Cup final, according to an insider. This may clearly raise doubts about whether tomorrow night's game 3 will take place.

The National Hockey League has had to postpone or cancel a few games in recent years because of inclement weather that affects clubs' schedules, but I don't believe anything like this has ever happened before. In particular, since it could affect the Stanley Cup Final.
Florida Panthers writer and editor George Richards of NHL.com and Florida Hockey Now claims that the team is finding it hard to leave South Florida because of the continuous monsoon that is plaguing the region. He states that although the team is supposed to land in Edmonton later tonight, the aircraft has been delayed due to the current weather.
This monsoon which has impacted South Florida the past two days is affecting the #FlaPanthers flight to Edmonton.

They are delayed, but expect to get there tonight.

Flight scheduled for 1 but many players and staff still at complex.

Despite the fact that the Florida Panthers should arrive in Edmonton before tomorrow's game, it doesn't appear like they will be leaving anytime soon. It appears that the majority of players remain at the team's facilities while the flooding prevents them from leaving.
Duck boats should be called to get players out of flooded Holiday ParkFTL has major drainage issues still.

If this weather persists, there's a chance the game will be postponed, particularly if the Panthers are unable to take off quickly. It goes beyond a simple regular season match. The Stanley Cup final is currently underway, and I doubt the NHL would want to give the impression that they are supporting one side over the other. If the Florida Panthers don't get enough sleep.
