UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) _ Dallas center Mike Modano briefly left Sunday’s game against the New York Islanders following a crushing hit by Michael Peca.
About a minute into the second period, Modano was carrying the puck along the boards when he was hit by a streaking Peca. He crumpled to the ice, holding his wrist, while several Dallas players approached and shoved Peca. No penalty was called.
Modano left the ice with a trainer but returned about 5 minutes later, apparently uninjured.
