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.

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

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.
