Blue Jackets vs. Ducks Clash Faces Unexpected Delay

Hockey fans were gearing up for a thrilling showdown between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Anaheim Ducks, with all eyes set on the much-anticipated battle between Adam Fantilli and Leo Carlsson. However, an unexpected twist in the tale has temporarily halted the excitement.

The #NHLDucks @ #CBJ game, originally scheduled for 6:30 PM, has now been postponed to 8:30 PM ET due to a power outage in downtown Columbus.

«Should the outage not be resolved by 6 PM ET, additional information will be released at that time.»

The source of the delay is an NHL power outage, pushing back the game's start time to 8:30 PM. However, there's a crucial caveat—there's a mere 10-minute window to rectify the power issue before the clock strikes 6 PM ET. Beyond this deadline, the game may face the unfortunate fate of being canceled.

As Nationwide Arena remains shrouded in darkness, fans will have to wait until 7:45 PM to access the venue. The much-anticipated clash between the Blue Jackets, led by Adam Fantilli, and the rebuilding Anaheim Ducks, spearheaded by Lukas Dostal, promises an intriguing matchup.
