Lighting problem fixed at Prudential Center after NHL game suspended

All the lights are working again at the Prudential Center in Newark.

Power was restored early Saturday after a lighting problem on one side of the arena forced the suspension of the New Jersey Devils-Tampa Bay Lightning NHL game.

Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said a circuit breaker at the three-year-old arena went down during the second period of Friday night's game. A computerized lighting system for half of the lights then failed to reboot. The game was called after a nearly two-hour delay with the Lightning ahead 3-0.

Because the teams don't have more games scheduled against each other, NHL officials say a new date for completion will be determined.

The Cincinnati-Seton Hall basketball game is scheduled for Saturday at Prudential Center.
