Visnovsky was favoring his left shoulder after the hit; he headed to the dressing room and did not join the Islanders on the ice for the start of the second period. The team announced via its Twitter account that Visnovsky had suffered a concussion and would not return

Visnovsky, 37, has a goal and two assists in eight games.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
