Sabres G Matt Hackett taken off ice on stretcher after collision with Bruins D Torey Krug

BOSTON - Buffalo Sabres goalie Matt Hackett has been taken off the ice on a stretcher after a collision with Boston Bruins defenceman Torey Krug.

Krug was skating toward the net when he was upended by Buffalo defenceman Jamie McBain and fell on Hackett's right leg with 11:35 left in the third period on Saturday.

Hackett remained sprawled on the ice, face down, as medical personnel came to his aid. After more than five minutes, he was carefully placed on a wheeled stretcher.

Hackett, who had been recalled from the AHL on March 17, was replaced by Connor Knapp with Boston leading 3-1.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
