Found March 27, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury exited Tuesday's game against the Atlantic Division rival New York Islanders after taking an inadvertent elbow from teammate Paul Martin during the second period. Martin accidentally lowered the boom after Frans Nielsen skated around the charging goaltender en route to scoring a goal. Martin and Fleury collided on the play, causing the netminder's mask to go flying. Brad Thiessen replaced Fleury in the contest. Earlier in the session, Islanders veteran netminder Evgeni Nabokov left the game with a lower body injury. He was replaced by Al Montoya.
