-Forward Jason Blake of the New York Islanders had complete feeling in all of his extremities and didn't sustain any serious back or neck injuries when he crashed headfirst into the boards last night in a 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild.
Blake was still undergoing tests a few hours after the game and was expected to remain in hospital overnight as a precautionary measure.
