A very scary situation occurred during the Islanders-Canadiens matchup on Tuesday night when Johnny Boychuk caught the skate of Artturi Lehkonen near his eye.
Islanders team president and GM Lou Lamoriello says Boychuk will be fine after a plastic surgeon quickly stitched up his eyelid.
"Johnny Boychuk is OK," Lamoriello told reporters on Wednesday. "There's been no damage to his eye. He had quite a night. First of all, you don't know what happens. He felt the skate blade get his eye, but fortunately just got the eyelid and it took 90 stitches to fix."
