Maybe because the decision wasn't made until now?
The game involves a sheet of ice that has to be maintained to a certain quality on an outdoor rink. Delays to the game are a foreseeable event. Baseball games get rain delayed or canceled, and sometimes while there's already a full stadium!
If I were traveling a long distance to go to the game I would probably want to spend the night tomorrow. Especially since I'd be drinking at the game, I don't want to have to worry about rushing back home after the game.
