Maple Leafs' Ranger has sore neck, says he's OK after scary situation on hit

TORONTO - Paul Ranger says he's OK less than two days after suffering a neck injury.

The Maple Leafs defencemen, who was injured when he was boarded by Lightning forward Alex Killorn in a game on Wednesday, was not treated for a concussion, according to coach Randy Carlyle.

Ranger called himself "thankful" that it wasn't worse. When he was on the ice, he could feel the neck pain immediately and that his mind and body went into "preservation mode."

The 29-year-old did not take part in Toronto's practice Friday but was able to go on the ice for the team photo.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
