Default Flames' Yelle taken off ice on stretcher

BOSTON (AP) - Calgary forward Stephane Yelle was taken off the ice on a stretcher because of an ankle injury Thursday night after falling backward and being pushed into the boards by Bruins defenceman Jason York.

''He went into the boards awkwardly and he jammed up his ankle,'' Flames coach Jim Playfair said. ''He'll fly home with us tonight and we will get it checked out.''

Yelle, injured late in the second period, is in his 11th season in the NHL.

''You really don't know what to think when something like that happens,'' Flames forward Jeff Friesen said. ''It deflated us and we obviously had a letdown.''

Boston won the game 3-2.
