Brief lighting failure delays start of 3rd period between Sabres and Capitals

WASHINGTON - The Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals had to wait a few extra minutes to get the third period started because of a brief lighting malfunction.

The problem was solved quickly Sunday night, and the third period got under way after a delay of about six minutes. The malfunction was hardly noticeable from upper level of the Verizon Center.

Washington held a 4-2 lead at the time of the delay.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
