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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
