Boston G Tuukka Rask leaves game against Islanders with injury

BOSTON - Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask has left Saturday's game against the New York Islanders with an injury in the second period.

Rask, attempting to kick out his left pad on a shot midway into the second period, went down to the ice in pain.

He was helped off—with two players holding an arm each as he skated off—and he was replaced by Tim Thomas with 10:59 left in the period with the score tied at 1.

It was unclear what was the injury.
