Rogers Place went dark Sunday during a game between the Canucks and Wild.

Late in the third period, the lights in the stadium just completely cut out as the Wild were on their way to a 3-0 victory. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s not like they dimmed. The entire place went dark. Watch the bizarre moment unfold below.

Can anything go correctly in 2020? Even when we do have sports going, we still have coronavirus outbreaks and now the NHL can’t even keep the stadium lights on.

It’s one disaster after another in the world of sports during the pandemic!

Obviously, I’m mostly just kidding. Lights going out isn’t really comparable to a global pandemic that’s brought society to a halt, but it is damn funny.

At this point, I wouldn’t rule out anything happening. Literally nothing going wrong surprises me anymore. I just expect things to go off the rails.

The lights going out in an NHL stadium is just the latest example.
