Video: The lights were out in Buffalo

Oct 14, 2013, 8:48 PM EDT

Update: The game just resumed around 8:50 ET. The Buffalo News’ John Vogl added an appropriate joke for that, too.

The jokes are even more inevitable than the losses: even the Buffalo Sabres’ lights aren’t ready to go this season.

Here are a couple quick jokes from the beat writers on hand for Monday’s Sabres game against the Minnesota Wild, where the second period was delayed by lighting problems:

Before you drag Buffalo through the mud, don’t forget that the latest Super Bowl was delayed for a lengthy amount of time until resumed. In that case, the San Francisco 49ers turned around their play and almost won against the Baltimore Ravens, so maybe the Sabres just needed some technological intervention?

Video footage of the outage will be added soon.

    How is Ott playing this game? Shanahan missed one on his hit the other night.

    It isn’t keeping the announcer from drooling on themselves about the wild.

      I was thinking the same thing. I don’t see what they see…yawn.
