NJ-0 9:12 2nd
The game has been suspended due to New Jersey's inability to get a bank of lights functioning in their allegedly state-of-the-art and pratically brand new arena in scenic downtown Newark, New Jersey.
No announcement has been made regarding how the league will handle the stoppage. We'll have to dig back in the history books, but I seems to recall a game during Paul Ranger's junior career where this same thing happened and Oshawa had to play the remainder of the game at a different date a week or two later. I'm perfectly fine with the Lightning having to finish out the last 29 minutes of the game. A winner doesn't want to be handed 2 points for half a night's work. As long as the Lightning get to start the resumption of this game with a 3-0 lead at the same point on the clock, I'm fine with that. That's fair. If the Devils try to lobby the league for anything else, I'm going to lose a lot of respect for their organization.
Mike Smith has 20 saves on 20 shots thus far.
TB 6:58, Downie 9 (Foster, Malone)(PP)
TB 5:13, Bochenski 1 (Stamkos, Foster)(PP)
TB 10:04, Stamkos 22 (St. Louis, Lecavalier)
I wonder how this is going to be handled in my fantasy league. Stamkos has 1 goal and 1 assist already, for crying out loud!
The league has announced the game will be restarted at the point it was stopped at a date to be determined. Good.
It's as if the Admirals got the early goal and then decided it was going to be easy so they didn't have to skate hard anymore.
Dustin Tokarski allowed 4 goals on 40 shots for the loss. There were a couple of goals that went through Dustin that I'm sure he wishes he had back. I'd expect Janus to be in tomorrow night.

Hutchings opened the gameâ€™s scoring with his 26th goal of the year. His career high for goals is 34, set last season. He scored 29 two years ago. Barrie is expected to announce the acquisition of Alex Pietrangelo, who was released back to major junior by the St. Louis Blues after being named the top defenseman at the world junior championship while playing for Team Canada.
