PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger left the game after taking a vicious stick to the face, leaving Philadelphia concerned over the health of their captain after a 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.

Pronger and Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski sprinted for a loose puck in the circle after a rebound off Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky on Monday night. Grabovski slapped at the puck, but his stick connected with Pronger’s and the blade shot straight up into the defenseman’s face.

Pronger screamed in agony and instantly clutched his face. Hunched over, he skated straight to the bench, his hands over his eyes, and went to the dressing room with 8:02 left in the first period.
