NEW YORK -- Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Second Round between the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning at Barclays Center on Friday was delayed at the start of the third period because of a problem with the boards.

The boards in the left corner of the zone the Lightning are defending in the third period appeared to be hit by the Zamboni while the ice was being resurfaced and partially separated.

A repair crew needed more than 10 minutes to fix the issue before the third period could begin. The Islanders led 1-0 after two periods.
