The St. Louis Blues' almost-wide-open schedule in February has been filled, if only slightly, with the rescheduling of six games, only two of which were already scheduled that month.

Three games that were postponed in December will be played in February. Two upcoming games in late January/early February have been moved back a couple of weeks. And one late February game was moved up six days.

February is the year's shortest month, but it had a big hole in it when the NHL set aside 16 days for the Olympics, then decided its players couldn't participate. The league is using that time to play games that had been postponed because of COVID-19 issues or attendance limitations in Canada, and to reschedule games for other reasons. In all, the league rescheduled 98 postponed games Wednesday.

All six rescheduled Blues games will be played during the Feb. 7-22 window that had been slated for the Olympic break. And all six will air on Bally Sports Midwest.
