Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger left Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after taking a hard hit late in the first period.
Ranger was rammed head-first into the end boards by Bolts forward Alex Killorn with three seconds remaining in the opening frame. He did not move while face- down on the ice, and was loaded onto an immobilizing device before taken out of the arena on a stretcher.
Killorn was given a major for boarding and a game misconduct.
Ranger had played for the Lightning from 2005-10.
