Tampa Bay beats New Jersey, 4-2, in completion of suspended game

NHL GAME OF THE DAY

The teams had to stop play on Friday because of a lighting problem in New Jersey's arena.

January 11, 2010

Newark, N.J. — Mike Smith made 33 saves and the Tampa Bay Lightning finished off the New Jersey Devils, 4-2, on Sunday in the completion of a game that was suspended two nights earlier because a lighting problem created a safety issue for the players.

Tampa Bay led, 3-0, when play was suspended Friday night with 9:12 left in the second period and it merely had to kill off the final 29:12 on Sunday to end a 10-game losing streak against New Jersey.

Steven Stamkos scored twice -- once on Friday and once Sunday -- and Steve Downie and Brandon Bochenski added goals in the game in which the players agreed not to protest playing three days in a row.

The Devils played in Montreal and the Lightning was in Philadelphia on Saturday.
