TORONTO (AP) - The Maple Leafs say defenseman Paul Ranger is ''stable, conscious and alert'' after his head hit the boards on a hit from Tampa Bay Lightning forward Alex Killorn.
Ranger, who left the ice on a stretcher Wednesday night, was taken to the hospital for what the team called a ''precautionary assessment.'' Toronto announced the update on Ranger's condition on its Twitter account.
With 4.1 seconds left in the first period, 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 medical attention was administered. Ranger's teammates huddled around and several Lightning players remained on the ice and watched from afar.
