Maple Leafs’ Paul Ranger stable, conscious and alert

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger was taken off the ice on a stretcher in the first period against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night after he was boarded by forward Alex Killorn with 4.1 seconds remaining in the period.

Ranger was facedown and motionless on the ice before Maple Leafs trainers and medical personnel could get to him.

Killorn was given a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct.

Pretty unfortunate,” Killorn said, via “Happy that he is OK, I heard through the PR and stuff that he is doing all right now. It’s kind of a scary moment, one of those plays where I commit to hit someone without knowing if they are going to turn, so it’s just an unfortunate play.”

Tampa Bay beat the Maple Leafs 5-3.
