TORONTO (AP) - Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger has left the game against Tampa Bay on a stretcher after his head hit the boards following a hit from Alex Killorn.
With 4.1 seconds left in the first period Wednesday night, Killorn boarded Ranger, who went down to the ice and remained there for almost 10 minutes. Ranger moved his legs but not much else after the hit.
A stretcher was brought onto the ice as Ranger's teammates huddled around and four Lightning players remained on the ice. Officials ended the period early.
Killorn was given a 5-minute major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.
