Islanders at Red Wings resumes

Start of third period was delayed by ice issues @NHLdotcom

DETROIT -- The game between the New York Islanders and Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday has resumed after the start of the third period was delayed because of issues with the ice.

Players were waiting to begin warmups, but the ice resurfacer was called out again after workers were unable to correct the problem in the middle of the ice.

In coordination with the teams, NHL Hockey Operations staff determined that goalies would begin the period as they would for the second period, and then switch at the first whistle after 10 minutes.

Detroit led 4-0 after two periods.
