Last night during game 5 between the Penguins and the Flyers FSN went dark. Here is their explanation from facebook.

Last night’s Penguins playoff game on FSN Pittsburgh went off the air at 8:06pm due to a lightning strike at the network’s technical operations facility in Atlanta, GA. The strike disabled the facility’s uplink capability and service was interrupted for approximately 30 minutes until a backup facility could resume transmission of the network’s feed. We understand and apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused the Penguins organizations, their fans and all of our viewers. We at FSN Pittsburgh do not take these matters lightly and will continue to make it a priority to provide a quality viewing experience for our teams and their fans.
