Islanders at Devils game canceled Thursday due to power outage

The preseason game between the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, was canceled Thursday because of a power outage. It will not be rescheduled.

Lighting in part of the arena was unable to be restored.

“In consultation with the Islanders and the NHL, it was determined that the playing conditions were unsuitable for players on both teams,” the Devils said in a statement.

Devils goalie Mackenzie Blackwood was scheduled to start and play at least two periods but did not participate in warmups.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me?
