Brian Boyle Injury: Rangers Forward Leaves Ice After Taking Alex Semin Shot To Face

WASHINGTON -- Brian Boyle left the ice at the end of the first overtime period in Game 3 after taking a shot from Alexander Semin in the face. Boyle returned to the bench to start double overtime, so he's probably not hurt too badly.

But hey, that's overtime in the playoffs. You know that there's a chance that puck hits you in the face every time you go down to block a shot, and Boyle paid the price this time. Nothing a few stitches and a trip to the dentist can't fix up, though.
