Team statement on game postponement

by Staff Writer / New Jersey Devils
The Devils-Lightning game on Friday, Jan. 8 has been postponed due to lighting issues. The Devils would like to apologize to all of our fans for this unexpected situation and any inconvenience it may have caused.

An interruption in power caused a breaker to trip. A computerized lighting system, for one-half of the sports lights, failed to re-boot. PSE&G, along with the Prudential Center electricians, diagnosed the situation for 90 minutes but could not re-boot the system. The same team will continue through the night in an attempt to find a solution.

According to a statement released by the National Hockey League, since the teams do not have future games scheduled against each other, a new date for the completion of the contest will have to be determined. Play will be resumed from the point at which play was stopped.

We encourage all fans to hold on to their tickets from Friday's game. We will provide more information relative to this situation as it becomes available. At that point, a formal ticket policy will be established and communicated.
