Officials said Game 1 would still start at its scheduled time: 7:45 p.m.
The lights came back on and the scoreboard flickered to life after a few stops and starts. There was one pleasant byproduct once the players hit the ice: An absence of blaring music during the pregame warmup.

LA Times colleague Helene Elliott (@helenenothelen) tweeted: “Without blaring music, you can actually talk to the person next to you and watch the warmup without getting a headache. What a concept.”
Maybe it will catch on.
