The two teams were scheduled for a 7 p.m. puck drop, but there was an issue with the ice behind one of the nets.

Arena workers tried to make repairs, but the game was cancelled about an hour later.

The Spirit announced that the rescheduled game will be played on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m., which means an awkward road trip to Michigan for the Storm in the middle of the week.

Tickets sold for the Nov. 2 game will be honoured on Dec. 4, but the Spirit said they would exchange tickets if fans are unable to attend.
