SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo has left a game against the New York Islanders after appearing to injure his right leg.

Luongo stretched the leg out to block a shot by Ryan Pulock in the second period. He had to be helped off the ice and wasn’t able to put any weight on the leg. He was replaced by James Reimer.

Luongo missed six games earlier this season with a hand injury. The two-time All-Star won his 200th game for Florida on Nov. 27 at New Jersey.
