Power outage at Darien rink forces changes to playoff ice hockey schedule

Update, 2 p.m. — Power has still not been restored to the Darien Ice House, so the FCIAC boys ice hockey game between No. 2 Ridgefield and No. 1 Greenwich has been moved to Hamill Rink in Greenwich, with a start time of 6:45 p.m.

Original Story — A power outage at the Darien Ice House and pool water issues at Greenwich High School have forced several changes to be made to Saturday’s FCIAC and state tournament schedules.

The two CHSGHA state girls ice hockey tournament games which were set to be held in Darien have been moved to Terry Conners Rink in Stamford. Darien vs. Simsbury will faceoff at 6:35 p.m., followed by New Canaan vs. West Haven at 8:20 p.m.

The FCIAC boys ice hockey championship game between the Ridgefield Tigers and Greenwich Cardinals is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Darien Ice House. As of this morning, the game has not be rescheduled, but is obviously dependent on the power situation at the rink.

The HAN Network will be carrying the FCIAC boys ice hockey championship game live.

The FCIAC boys swim finals, which had already been moved from their original date on Thursday, have been postponed one more day. The meet will now be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 4, with warm-ups to begin at 12:30 p.m.
