Leafs' Ranger stable after head hits boards
Ranger, who left the ice on a stretcher, 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.
Surgery for Peverley
The Stars said Rich Peverley underwent successful surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm, just more than a week after the forward collapsed on the bench during a game.
Stars general manager Jim Nill said Peverley was released from the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday, a day after surgery.
