Crosby leaves game after getting hit by puck

The SportsXchange

Pittsburgh Penguins star center Sidney Crosby left Saturday's game against the New York Islanders early in the first period after taking a puck to his face.

He was ruled out for the rest of the game.

A shot from Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik was deflected and hit Crosby in the mouth, drawing blood. After going down for a few minutes, Crosby skated off the ice under his own power.

Crosby leads the NHL with 56 points.
