Add another item to the list of complaints about Barclays Center.

“Awful” was the word Islanders forward Kyle Okposo used to describe the ice during Tuesday’s 2-1 shootout win over Carolina.

“Can’t have it like that,” Okposo said, per the New York post. “It’s got to change. It’s got to be better than that.”

Especially with the playoffs set to start in a couple of weeks.

By the way, the announced attendance on Tuesday was just 13,733. Only Carolina (12,035) and Arizona (13,340) have averaged smaller crowds than the Isles have (13,524) this season.

Capacity for hockey at Barclays Center is 15,795.

The Isles’ average attendance was 15,334 last season, their final one at Nassau Coliseum.
