Candlestick Park went dark twice during Monday night's game between the 49ers and Steelers. Two power outages delayed San Francisco's 20-3 Monday night win over Pittsburgh, first just before kickoff and again early in the second quarter after the stadium moved to a backup power source. The first outage pushed back the opening kickoff by 20 minutes. Thousands of flashbulbs went off in the midst of the blackness, with a sellout crowd of 69,732 sitting in darkness. The second delay came early in the second quarter and halted the game again between the playoff-bound teams for about 15 minutes.
