The New York Rangers enjoyed a 5-0 shutout of the Philadelphia Flyers Wednesday in the National Hockey League.

The game had barely begun when New York's Colton Orr sent Philadelphia's Todd Fedoruk to the ice with a hard punch to the face. Fedoruk was removed from rink on a stretcher and taken to a hospital for observation. A doctor for the Rangers later said Fedoruk suffered no serious injuries.

New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 17 saves to post his second shutout in three games.

Elsewhere in the NHL, Buffalo's Daniel Briere and Derek Roy each scored power-play goals to lead the Sabres to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals. Teammate Drew Stafford scored twice in the third period.
