RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The New York Islanders pulled starting goalie Robin Lehner in the second period of Game 4 of their second-round series with the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.

With his team trailing the series 3-0, coach Barry Trotz played coy by declining to announce his starter in the lead-up to the game, saying he didn’t want to give the Hurricanes a chance to prepare.

He yanked Lehner for backup Thomas Greiss after allowing two goals in a 66-second span of the second. Teuvo Teravainen beat him at 2:11, and Greg McKegg chased him by stuffing in a rebound at 3:17 to make it 3-1.

Lehner is winless in seven career games against Carolina — including the first three of this series. Greiss appeared in his first playoff game since 2016.
