Dan Boyle left Wednesday’s Game 7 in the third period and was not on the bench for the start of overtime.

The New York Rangers defenceman was injured in the third period after a big hit by Washinton Capitals defenceman Brooks Orpik as Boyle was carrying the puck into the Capitals’ zone. Boyle struggled to his feet and fell to the ice again before being helped off the ice.

Orpik was not assessed a penalty on the play.

Boyle has two goals and four points in 11 postseason games for the Rangers this season.
