Fans were allowed to re-enter the arena at 7:45. But another problem, a major water leak from heavy thunderstorms, further delayed the game, which eventually was postponed.

At 9 p.m., when players were allowed to return home, arena workers were still trying to remove standing water from the Barons locker room. At one point during the delay, water was pouring through the radio booth, spewing down the upper deck steps toward the lower bowl on the east side of the arena.

“Obviously we can’t do anything about it,” Nelson said. “They rescheduled the game for Sunday at 4 and it will be business as usual. It was important to get our guys home and get their rest. We’ll wake up (Saturday) morning like nothing happened and get back at it.”
