Sidney Crosby had to leave Pittsburgh's game against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night after he was hit in the face by a shot.

Crosby was jockeying for position in front of the Islanders' net when a shot from the point by teammate hit him in the face, drawing blood. Play was quickly stopped and Crosby was helped off the ice by a trainer, with a towel over his face.

Crosby shortly returned to the bench and took his next shift.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
