Capuano was helped off the bench midway through the third period when a clearing attempt by Islanders rookie Casey Cizikas clipped him in the face. Capuano was seen after the game with a stitched-up cut over his left eye and was able to meet with the media.
Games against the Devils this season have been hazardous to Capuano's health. He had to miss New Jersey's visit to Nassau Coliseum on opening night at the last minute when he was hospitalized for treatment of kidney stones.
There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
