Wings/Preds game re-scheduled

The NHL has re-scheduled the November 21st game between Detroit and Nashville to January 23rd. Originally, the 23rd was the date the Wings and Preds were to play in Nashville but now it will be played at the Joe. The Preds will get that home game back on March 30th, a date the Wings' previously had off. The game will start with the Preds up 1-0 but it will not otherwise pick up where it left off. All 60 minutes of the game will be played. I can't say I'm too impressed that the puck will be dropped on a full game with the Preds already ahead 1-0. Is there any kind of precedent for that in pro sports? My old high school football team had to delay a game due to lightning but they picked up at the half (where they left off) the next day, with the score as it was. I wouldn't mind the 1-0 bit if the game was started at 12:30 of the first, since it'd be like they picked up where they left off. The Predators were all for postponing the game originally. You'd think that'd mean they forfeit their lead. Guess not.

Yeah that's just bogus. Either start 0-0 with 60 minutes to go or at 1-0 at 12:30 of the first. There should be no precedent of starting a game at 1-0.
