NEW YORK -- New York Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle left Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round against the Washington Capitals at 9:26 of the third period after getting hit by Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik.

Boyle tried to get up twice as play continued but couldn't. He was tended to on the ice, and after skating off went to the dressing room.

Boyle played 25 shifts totaling 17:14. He had one shot on goal and two hits.

The Rangers won 2-1 on Derek Stepan's goal 11:24 into overtime to advance to the Eastern Conference Final for the second straight year.

Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning is at Madison Square Garden on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).

The Rangers did not have a full update on Boyle's condition following the game.

"Seemed fine when I saw him after," coach Alain Vigneault said. "We'll know more tomorrow."
