Stepan and Lovejoy were racing for a puck at the Penguins end of the ice, when Lovejoy rides Stepan into the boards. Stepan remained on the ice for a few seconds before slowly skating to the bench. A few minutes after that, he returned to the Rangers dressing room accompanied by Jim Ramsay.
Update: With 2:45 remaining in the third period, Derek Stepan returned to the Rangers' bench.
