From David Pollak at the SJ Mercury News,
A pregame power outage delayed the start of the Sharks home opener Saturday night by about 20 minutes.
Players were warming up on the ice when the arena bowl went totally dark about 7:05 p.m. Five seconds later, the HP Pavilion generators kicked in and there was enough light for the players to continue skating, but limited power elsewhere in the building.
Fans weren’t able to enter the building for a short period and the parking lot was also dark.
As efforts were being made to restore the power, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli huddled to determine the best way to begin the game once conditions were ready.
