NEWARK - New Jersey Devils fans headed to Newark to see their team at the Prudential Center despite the winter snowstorm.

While fans were happy to see the Devils beat the St. Louis Blues 7-1, they had less favorable reactions to the conditions.

Authorities statewide urged residents to stay home as road conditions deteriorated and snow fell across the region.

On West Market Street, at least one car had trouble getting up the incline, prompting a group of students to get out and push. Utility vehicles found it difficult to keep up, since almost every road in and out of the city of Newark was snow-covered and had light traffic.
