Brashear landed a high, hard hit on Betts 9:54 into Game 6 after the Rangers forward got rid of the puck at center ice. Betts was face down on the ice for several moments and appeared dazed as he was helped to the New York dressing room. No information was released about Betts' condition, but the Rangers said he wouldn't return to the game.
Brashear wasn't penalized for the hit, but was sent to the box for roughing along with Rangers defenseman Paul Mara, who came to Betts' defense.
