The New York Islanders threw away a 3-2 series lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins over the weekend, but it was almost a lot worse for centre Casey Cizikas who had to leave the ice for treatment in the first period of game six after his attempted hit on Simon Despres almost resulted in his decapitation.


The look on Cizikas' face shows how close a call this one was.
