Game 4 in the Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins playoff series will now be played on Saturday at noon amid a national boycott among several sports.

The game was initially supposed to be Friday night, but the NHL suspended its games for Thursday and Friday in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in Wisconsin.
