Colorado College couldn’t catch a break en route to Western Michigan, and now its first-round playoff series will have to wait.

The National Collegiate Hockey Conference quarterfinals series was postponed a day and is now scheduled to take place Saturday and Sunday with a Game 3 on Monday if necessary, due to further issues with the Tigers’ departure. All three games will still start at 5:05 p.m. (MDT).

A charter plane arrived to take Colorado College to its weekend series in Kalamazoo, Mich., a day late after commercial flights were cancelled due to the “bomb cyclone.” But according to the Tigers’ Twitter feed, a mechanical issue kept the team in Colorado Springs.
