Pens' Dupuis hurt while striking boards
PITTSBURGH -- Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis sustained an undisclosed facial injury while being rammed face-first into the boards by the Islanders defenseman Andy Sutton with 2:55 remaining in Pittsburgh's 6-4 victory on Tuesday night.
Dupuis was down on the ice for several minutes, blood dripping off his face, before he got up and walked with assistance to a tunnel leading to the Penguins' dressing room. He used a towel to cover up an apparent nose injury. Blood stains remained visible on the ice after the game ended.
Sutton drew a boarding penalty and a game misconduct.
