COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -New York Rangers coach Tom Renney was taken to the dressing room after being hit on the head by a stick in the second period against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

The team announced midway through the third that Renney was still in the arena and "is doing OK" but would not return.

Two Rangers hit Columbus defenseman Rostislav Klesla from behind and an errant stick struck Renney near the 11:30 mark of the second.

He left the bench area and did not return the rest of the period.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
