SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Power went out briefly at the SAP Center less than an hour before the scheduled start of Thursday night's playoff opener between the San Jose Sharks and the Los Angeles Kings.
A few thousand fans were in the arena when it went dark for a few seconds before emergency lights turned on.
About five minutes later, the lights came back on. Players later took the ice for warmups although there was none of the usual music over the loudspeaker.
