Montreal Canadiens v New York Islanders

Many cringed at the footage of Islanders' defenseman Johnny Boychuk leaving the ice grabbing his face after taking a skate to the face Tuesday night. Good news for him is his eyeball didn't get hit, just the eyelid.

Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello says it took a plastic surgeon 90 stiches to patch him up.
