Report: Rangers Ryan Strome injures right hand; will not return for third period

An accidental collision between Strome and Islanders big defenseman Scott Mayfield caused the injury.

Strome immediately dropped his stick and gloves with a grimace. When the period ended, he was still wincing and could not hold his stick in that hand.

The 28 year-old had a goal and an assist before leaving.
