Video- Marc Staal Takes A Hit To The Chin Area

via Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

After the game, one in which his team rallied from behind on Chris Kreider's game-tying goal with less than 22 seconds in regulation, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault was unable to shed much light on what happened to one of the team's top defenseman.

But what he did say is, at the very least, cause for concern.

Vigneault revealed that Staal "didn't feel quite right" after sustaining a hit from New Jersey's Reid Boucher during the third period.

"He took a shoulder to the chin there and didn't feel quite right," Viugneault said. "They're evaluating him now. We'll have an update [Sunday]."

When pressed further about whether there was concern Staal had sustained a concussion, Vigneault did not confirm.
