If you missed this last night, It was terrifying. Watch this video below.
Isles' Johnny Boychuk took a skate blade to the face in last night's game vs. Montreal. GM Lou Lamoriello said it took 90 stitches to repair the eyelid https://t.co/izkFf5UzEh pic.twitter.com/GKc4vmMnzo

Hockey Guys are tough and there are not many guys in the NHL like Johny Boychuk.
First off he is okay, he did receive 90 stitches to the eye lid. His actual eye was not damaged or hurt in anyway.
But as Dwight Famously said….
This injury could not come at a worse time for the Isles, they are falling apart at the seams and have now lost four games in a row and are 2-6-2 in their last ten.
They sit tied with the Blue Jackets at 78 points holding down the 7th and 8th seed for the Eastern conference Playoffs.
Now with the loss of a key member of the Defensive Pairings, the Islanders are determined to make me sweat out the remainder of this playoff push.
