The Oklahoma City Barons will play Grand Rapids in Game 4 of the American Hockey League playoffs Friday night at the Cox Convention Center but it’s uncertain when the game will start.

After moving fans to the parking lot underneath the Cox Convention Center for 45 minutes during a tornado warning, fans were allowed to re-enter but another problem, a major water leak, has further delayed the game. All fans are being moved to the west sections of the arena.

The ceiling in the radio booth on top of the east end of the arena has sprung a major leak. Water is spewing a steady stream down the steps toward the rink.

The Barons lead the best-of-7 series 2-1. It’s uncertain when Game 4 will start Friday night but the game will be played.
