TORONTO Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mark Fraser was hit in the face by a slap shot off the stick of Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic at 7:49 of the third period with the score tied 3-3 Wednesday night in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal at Air Canada Centre.

Fraser, who played 10:07 in the first two periods then helped kill off a four-minute Boston power play early in the third, was immediately taken to the dressing room by the Toronto training staff.

Coach Randy Carlyle said during his postgame remarks that Fraser was taken to the hospital to have a CT scan that would check for fractures or broken bones in his face.

Quote of the Day

It's time we got a break. People that have watched us, I'm sure they said, 'Finally, some things are going our way.' We'll take the breaks when they go our way.
