JASON\'S GOING TO BE OKAY

(11:15 pm) The big picture is that Jason Blake, injured in tonight's game between the Islanders and Minnesota Wild, is going to be okay.

Blake was taken to an area hospital for tests and will likely be kept overnight as a precautionary measure. However, he has complete feeling in all of his extremities and doctors have ruled out any serious back or neck injuries.

"Our thoughts are with Jason tonight," said Islanders coach Steve Stirling more than an hour after the game. "He knows he has the complete support of his team. We look forward to getting him back, but that's for another day. The good news is that he's going to be okay."

In a classy move, Minnesota defenseman Kurtis Foster, who was tangled up with Blake when the Islanders forward was injured, left a message of concern on Blake's cell phone tonight. Foster was given the good news before he left the Coliseum that Blake was feeling better and his injury is not expected to be serious.
