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

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
