First Published Mar 19 2014 10:50 pm • Last Updated Mar 20 2014 05:04 pm

Toronto • Steven Stamkos had a natural hat trick and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat Toronto 5-3 Wednesday night in a game that included a frightening injury to Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger.

Ranger left the ice on a stretcher after his head hit the boards following a first-period hit from Alex Killorn. Ranger was "stable, conscious and alert," according to the Maple Leafs, after being taken to the hospital for what the team called a "precautionary assessment."

With 4.1 seconds left in the first period, Killorn boarded Ranger, who went down to the ice and remained there for roughly seven minutes before medical personnel put him on a stretcher and wheeled him off. Ranger moved his legs but not much else after the hit.

Ranger’s teammates huddled around as attention was administered, and several Lightning players remained on the ice and watched from afar.

Peverley has successful heart surgery • Rich Peverley has been released from an Ohio hospital after undergoing successful surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm, just more than a week after the Dallas Stars forward collapsed on the bench during a game.
