Watch: Boychuk Injured by Tootoo Hit from Behind

The Islanders may have lost defenseman Johnny Boychuk again. The Isles defenseman went in awkwardly to the boards when he was shoved from behind by Jordin Tootoo during Friday night's Islanders-Devils game at the Prudential Center. Tootoo got a five-minute major and an ejection on the play.

Boychuk, who injured his left shoulder in a collison on New Year's eve in Buffalo, missed eleven games due to the injury, and had just returned to action in the first week of February.

Update: Boychuk returned to the game and appears to be good to go.
