SENATORS: Forward Zack Smith was fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment in a Dec. 10 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Smith’s second citation triggered the $2,000 fine.

RANGERS: Goalie Antti Raanta left Thursday’s game against Minnesota after taking a slap shot off the top of his helmet early in the first period.

Minnesota defenseman Marco Scandella took a hard shot from below the right faceoff circle, hitting Raanta in the forehead area of the helmet.

Raanta staggered a bit and fell forward to the ice. He was down for several minutes before getting up and skating off under his own power.
