Sabres right wing Patrick Kaleta didn’t get to see the wild ending. He was taken to the hospital for precautionary tests after suffering a neck injury in the first period.
Kaleta made a pass along the boards and turned his back as Mike Brown barreled in. The Toronto forward followed through his hit and was assessed a boarding penalty.
“I thought he was sideways,” Ruff said. “Some of the obligation is on the player. I didn’t think he was defenseless. It’s a tough area.
“It’s not a blatant run of a guy from behind. He’s had the neck issues in the past. ... We want to make sure that there’s nothing there.”
