No guarantee they would have played it on that date, but either way, it means nothing but a good laugh. On the day the league announced the cancellation of those dates, if instead the league had announced a deal with the players and that they intended to play the games scheduled on that date on that date, other arrangements would have been made to either move Mitt or the game, and it would not been some kind of horrific logistical nightmare or be seen as the nefarious subplot others might try and blow it into.

I get that reporters have to write about something, and better they write about Romney and the TD Garden than write about something else, if only to get that phrase "cluster[Gretzky]" into print again.
