Now the twist in the story is a power surge caused the circuit breaker to go belly up and keep doing so. By the time they reset everything...it was going to take way longer than 10 minutes to get the arena lit to 100% or something close to playable. I can hear it now...how fans of other teams could say this could only happen in New Jersey. I still remember to this day when this happened at MSG in 1994 during an Aerosmith concert. They were able to play on but their set was cut short a bit. Fans were compensated. Now about 10pm was when my brother got a call from PSE&G. See my brother is a journeyman electrician in the state and well I really would not trust any electrical work without him looking at it first. The brother and several others got calls because they worked on the circuit breaker in question. By then, the game was pretty much going to be called anyway. It was more a question of when the lights would come back on. Basically as said brother quoted "10 minutes to reset that?....try at least a couple hours!" Well sure enough about 11:30, the power came back at 100% of its original glory. As everyone knows now, the game will be resumed 6pm tomorrow evening at The Rock. It was good to see Tampa, New Jersey, and the NHL come up with an easy solution that made everyone happy. The lesson to be learned here is really there is no embarrassment. Power spikes happen all the time. Remember that huge blackout a few years back? Just be thankful that the lights only dimmed. Imagine if the entire arena blacked out completely. I am just saying.
