Islanders' MacDonald leaves with injury
New York Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald headed off to the dressing room with about seven minutes remaining in the second period
UNIONDALE, N.Y. – New York Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald headed off to the dressing room with about seven minutes remaining in the second period of Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Tuesday night with what appeared to be an upper-body injury.

MacDonald, a top-four blueliner for New York, was on the receiving end of a slap shot by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Douglas Murray. MacDonald was also given a holding penalty during the sequence; Keith Aucoin served the two minutes.

MacDonald did not return to the game, which the Islanders won 6-4.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
