Islanders' Andrew MacDonald is on the mend after breaking hand in playoffs

While the disappointment of the Game 6 playoff loss has not yet gone away, the Islanders spoke Tuesday about this year's success and looked forward to next season. Videojournalist: Robert Cassidy (May 14, 2013)

Andrew MacDonald is headed home to Nova Scotia this week, but he'll be back in three weeks to have a metal rod removed from his broken left hand.

MacDonald took Douglas Murray's shot off the back of his hand in Game 4, an injury that the Isles had trouble overcoming.

"I thought the guys played their hearts out in Game 6," he said. "It was just one of those things."
