Video: Alex Killorn's hit on Paul Ranger

TORONTO — Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger was taken off the ice on a stretcher and to a Toronto hospital as a precaution after he was hit into the end boards by Lightning forward Alex Killorn in Wednesday's game.

The Leafs reported Ranger, who played for the Lightning from 2005-10, was "stable, conscious and alert."

Killorn received a five-minute boarding major and a game misconduct for the hit that came with 4.1 seconds left in the first period of the Lightning's 5-3 win. Killorn said he left an apology on Ranger's voice mail.

The game misconduct comes with an automatic $200 fine and a certain meeting with league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.
