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

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
