Two-Point Night For Rangers' Boyle

News: Dan Boyle snapped an 18-game goal drought with a first-period tally and added an assist while going plus-3 in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.
Analysis: Dan Boyle's been a valuable and reliable member of the Rangers' blue line, but the offense has not really been there -- even with Thursday's production, he owns only 19 points in 56 games this season. At least nine of those points have been goals, so Boyle's threatening to reach double digits in that category for the sixth time in his career.

Rangers' Boyle Snaps Nine Game Drought

News: Dan Boyle collected a first period assist in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Washington.s
Analysis: The point marks Dan Boyle's first in nine games, the second such point-scoring drought of the season for the veteran defenseman. While eight goals and a plus-14 rating from a blue liner is nothing to shake a stick at, with just 16 points through 49 games, it's safe to say Boyle is having arguably the worst season of his 16-year NHL career and fantasy owners should probably steer clear until he shows more consistent production.

Rangers' Boyle To Play On Monday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) will play Monday against the Islanders, the Record reports.
Analysis: Based on warmups, Dan Boyle and Matt Hunwick are in line to form the Rangers' third defensive pairing on Monday, with John Moore slated to be a scratch.

Rangers' Boyle (Illness) A Game-Time Call Monday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's tilt with the Islanders, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle missed the game Saturday due to the illness, but took part at morning skate, which could indicate his return to the lineup Monday. His status should be confirmed either at some point leading up to the game or when the team takes the ice for warmups.

Rangers' Boyle (Illness) Skates Monday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) was on the ice for practice Monday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle missed Saturday's game against the Coyotes due to the illness, but his presence at morning skate Monday likely indicates the worst is behind him. It appears, he'll be available for Monday's contest against the Islanders, but the team should provide an official update on his status at some point before the opening face-off.

Rangers' Boyle (Illness) Out Saturday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) will not play Saturday against the Coyotes, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: The unspecified illness will cost Dan Boyle his 17th game of the season -- he missed 14 after suffering a broken hand in the opener and another two due to illness -- opening the door for John Moore and Matt Hunwick to both step into the lineup. Boyle had already matched his goal total from December and January combined (three) in his first six February games.

Rangers' Boyle Claims Goal, Goes Plus-4 In Win

News: Dan Boyle recorded a goal and went plus-4 in Thursday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has goals in back-to-back contests to give him eight tallies on the season, putting him on pace to match or surpass the 12 he compiled with the Sharks in 2013-14. However, that's about the only category his numbers are up this season, as he's been absent from the scoresheet for lengthy stretches on multiple occasions. His brand name probably outstrips his fantasy value at this stage, but there's still a place for him in mid-sized or deeper leagues.

Rangers' Boyle Nets Second Goal In As Many Games

News: Dan Boyle scored the eventual game-winning goal in Monday's 6-3 win over Florida.
Analysis: The deflection off the Panthers' defenseman wasn't the prettiest of goals, but that's goals in consecutive games for the veteran blue liner. While he's a proven point-getter over the course of his career, Dan Boyle (11 points in 32 games) has gone six-or-more games without a point three times this season, so there's simply no way we can guarantee this recent uptick in production will continue. Consider his services, but with hesitant expectations.

Rangers, Boyle Snap Out Of Funk

News: Dan Boyle scored a third period goal in Saturday's victory over Carolina.
Analysis: That's the veteran defenseman's first goal or point in eight games. While he's had spurts of productivity peppered in between injuries and illness, with just five goals and 10 points in just 31 games played, it's clear fantasy owners expected much more from the former 60-point scorer.

Rangers' Boyle Named First Star In Win Over Kings

News: Dan Boyle scored a power-play goal and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Dan Boyle had a tough start to the year, breaking his hand in the season opener and struggling to produce after returning, but he's now quite literally in midseason form. The veteran blueliner's been performing at a point-per-game pace over the last seven games, with five of those points coming on the Rangers' white-hot man advantage.

Rangers' Boyle Claims Two Points In Win

News: Dan Boyle ripped off a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-1 whipping of the Sabres.
Analysis: Dan Boyle provided the Rangers' only even-strength goal of a dominate first period that saw the team race to a 4-0 lead. The aging blueliner's first season on Broadway hasn't gone quite as most expected, but he's probably playing his best hockey right now. He's notched a point in four of his last five games, with Saturday marking his first multi-point showing of the campaign.

Rangers' Boyle Grabs Assist Saturday

News: Dan Boyle captured a power-play assist in Saturday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has assists in back-to-back games, but he's still largely failed to make an impact since returning from a broken hand in mid-November. He's mustered just four points and 31 shots on goal over 17 games and has seen his ice time fall below 20 minutes in each of the last five matches.

Rangers' Boyle (Illness) Back In Action

News: Dan Boyle returned Saturday after missing two games with an illness. He finished minus-1 with one SOG, two blocks and three hits.
Analysis: Get him back in there if you roll him regularly -- he's not blowing the doors off offensively, but he's still a solid fantasy contributor.

Rangers' Boyle To Play Saturday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) will be ready to play Saturday against the Red Wings, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle returned to practice Thursday after missing the previous two games with flu-like symptoms, which had drained him of energy over the previous four days. Now that he's ready to go, he'll slide in next to Ryan McDonagh, with John Moore likely becoming a healthy scratch Saturday.

Rangers' Boyle Won't Play Monday

News: Dan Boyle (flu) will not play Monday against the Lightning, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle's illness is still classified as the flu at this point, but he will undergo blood tests Monday to make sure it's not something more serious.

Rangers' Boyle Out With Illness

News: Dan Boyle will not play Saturday due to a bout with the flu, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Consider Dan Boyle day-to-day with the illness. John Moore will enter the lineup Saturday in Boyle's place.

Rangers' Boyle Bags Power-Play Goal

News: Dan Boyle netted the game-winning goal in Friday's 3-0 defeat of the Flyers.
Analysis: Dan Boyle gave the Rangers the lead just over six minutes into the first period, blowing a slap shot past Flyers goalie Steve Mason for his second goal of the season. Both of those points have come on the power play, where Boyle figures to be a mainstay on the top unit all season.

Rangers' Boyle Claims First Point

News: Dan Boyle collected his first point of the season with a first-period power-play goal in Wednesday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has yet to get going after a broken hand cost him entire month of action, but Thursday's goal could spark his production. Though he's long past his peak at 38 years old, Boyle's presence on a top power-play unit ripe with talent should allow him to finish the season as an above-average source of offense from the blue line.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Boyle

News: Dan Boyle and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Dan Boyle to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Boyle Returns For Rangers

News: Dan Boyle went plus-1 with two penalty minutes, three shots on goal, a hit and a block over 22:14 in his first game back in the lineup Thursday, but the Rangers took a shootout loss to the Avs.
Analysis: It was Dan Boyle's first game since the Oct. 9 season opener in which the veteran broke his hand, and the Rangers have to feel happy about getting him back even though they took the loss.

Rangers Activate Boyle

News: Dan Boyle (broken hand) was formally activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The Rangers waived defenseman Michael Kostka to pave the way for Dan Boyle's activation. The blueliner, who has been out since opening night with the broken hand, will skate alongside Marc Staal on the top pairing and serve as the quarterback for the Rangers' top power-play unit.

Rangers' Boyle Will Play Thursday

News: Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Dan Boyle (hand) will play Thursday against the Avalanche, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is still experiencing some lingering pain with his hand, but it doesn't appear to be a dramatic hindrance for him at this point. He was able to practice fully Wednesday while working on the top pairing and on the power play, which was good enough for the Rangers to feel comfortable bringing him back into the fold. The match against the Avalanche will mark Boyle's first game since suffering the injury in his team debut Oct. 9. He'll be officially activated from injured reserve in the hours leading up to Thursday's game.

Rangers' Boyle Likely To Return Thursday

News: Dan Boyle (hand) participated fully Wednesday and appears likely to play Thursday against the Avalanche, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle participated as part of a pairing with Marc Staal and also saw work on the power-play unit, a sign coach Alain Vigneault plans to use him in Thursday's lineup. The Rangers will likely check in with Boyle on how his hand feels after Thursday's morning skate as a final precautionary measure before formally activating him from IR.

Rangers' Boyle Targeting Weekend Return

News: Dan Boyle (hand) will not play Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Dan Boyle said that his broken hand is still not back at full strength, but the blueliner thinks he might be able to manage the pain and play Thursday against the Avalanche. A team doctor will re-examine his hand later Tuesday, but Boyle's level of participation in Wednesday's practice will likely determine if he'll be able to suit up in the team's next match. He's already missed 14 games due to the injury.

Rangers' Boyle Targeting A Return Next Week

News: Dan Boyle (broken hand) said he is targeting a return to the lineup at some point next week, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle took part in a full-contact practice Friday for the first time since suffering the injury back on Oct. 9, signaling that he's nearly ready to return to game action. Because of his lengthy absence, however, it appears the Rangers want him to log multiple practices before activating him. If all goes well during his on-ice sessions the next few days, Boyle could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday's tilt with the Penguins.
