The Detroit Red Wings’ game at Carolina last night was called off because of an ice problem. Officials say the cooling system sprang a leak that was discovered about an hour before faceoff. The leak was repaired, and the system recharged, but the ice could not restored to a safe playing condition in time. An NHL rule prevented the game from starting after 9:30 because Detroit also has a game tonight. No make-up date for last night’s contest has been announced. The Wings skate at Tampa Bay tonight. Faceoff is at 7:30 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.
