Bolts' Boyle Likely Back In For Game 2

News: Brian Boyle (undisclosed) is participating in pregame warmups and looks like he'll draw back in the lineup for Monday's Game 2 against the Rangers, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper was tight-lipped about Brian Boyle's potential availability at the Bolts' morning skate, but it looks like the center will step back in after missing the series opener. He pivoted a fourth line of Brenden Morrow and J.T. Brown during warmups.

Bolts' Boyle Skates Monday

News: Brian Boyle (undisclosed) skated Monday morning, but coach Jon Cooper indicated that he has no update on him at this point, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Brian Boyle missed Game 1 on Saturday due to the undisclosed injury, and did not skate Sunday either. The return to practice Monday is a good sign, but his status for Game 2 appears up in the air at this point. However, the Lightning should provide an update at some point prior to the contest.

Bolts' Boyle (Undisclosed) Misses Sunday Practice

News: Brian Boyle (undisclosed) is not at the Lightning's practice Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: There's still no word on what the injury is, so it's impossible to say for certain if this means Brian Boyle will miss Game 2 against the Rangers. Check back for an update Monday, when the situation could be a little clearer.

Bolts' Boyle (Undisclosed) Out For Game 1 Saturday

News: Brian Boyle (undisclosed) is not on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Saturday's Eastern Conference Finals opener against New York and will not play, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Boyle is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury and will not be on the ice Saturday. It's unclear whether he'll be available for Game 2 on Monday.

Bolts' Boyle Scores Shortie In Loss

News: Brian Boyle scored a shorthanded goal in Thursday's Game 1 loss to Detroit.
Analysis: It was a beauty, as Brian Boyle entered by himself on a breakaway, powered to the net, then put on the brakes as he entered the crease and pulled a sick move on Wings goalie Petr Mrazek. He was one of only two Lightning players to get a puck by Mrazek, who stopped 44 shots. Boyle skated 17:34 in this one, portending a large role in the games to come.

Tampa's Boyle Gets Goal 15

News: Brian Boyle scored his 15th goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: The points come sporadically for the big boy and that makes him a difficult roll. He has just three points in his last 11 games.

Bolts' Boyle: Point In Each Of Last Two Games

News: Brian Boyle picked up an assist in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He now has a point in each of his last two games.
Analysis: He's not really known for his scoring, so these points are a bonus. He has delivered at least 100 each of shots and hits this season, so he does have some value in leagues with a wide range of scoring categories.

Bolts' Boyle Nets Two, Including Winner

News: Brian Boyle scored twice, including the game winner, in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Ducks.
Analysis: He's having a Cy Young season (12 goals, five assists). He plays a valuable role on the ice, but his value in fantasy is restricted to the deepest of leagues.

Brian Boyle

Bolts' Boyle: Goals In Two Straight

News: Brian Boyle scored a shorthanded goal in Tuesday's loss to Carolina. He has a goal in each of his last two games.
Analysis: Four of his 10 goals have come since the calendar turned to 2015 -- that's nine games. He's not really going to have huge fantasy value, but right now, he might add some value as a depth guy, especially if you've been hit hard with injuries.

Bolts' Boyle: Just One Point In Last 22 Games

News: Brian Boyle has just a single point -- a goal -- in his last 22 games.
Analysis: He's still contributing hits, blocks and a few shots on net. And winning face-offs, too. But none of that is enough to make him fantasy worthy, even in the deepest and most obscurest formats. We're pretty sure you can find better.

Bolts' Boyle: Goal Makes Four Points In Last Four

News: Brian Boyle scored a shorthanded goal in Thursday's win over the Flames. He now has four points, including three goals, in his last four games.
Analysis: His seven points in 13 games put him on an unsustainable pace (his previous career mark is 35 points and that came in 2010-11). And his shooting percentage is through the roof. But he's delivering solid secondary scoring and might be able to help you in the next few games.

Bolts' Boyle Pots Two In Win

News: Brian Boyle potted two goals in Tuesday's 7-3 takedown of the Coyotes.
Analysis: Just about everybody on the Lightning got in the act for this one, as 13 different players recorded a point in the blowout win. Brian Boyle further supplemented his value in the faceoff circle, where he won 14 of 21 draws. By fourth-liner standards, he's been highly efficient, accumulating five points and a plus-5 rating over 10 games.

Bolts' Boyle Admits Leafs Offered More Money

News: Brian Boyle acknowledged he passed up more money from the Maple Leafs to sign his three-year, $6 million deal with the Lightning, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: Part of the decision was the raving former -- and now current -- teammate Ryan Callahan had done about the Bolts, and part was the fact that his brand-new wife is from Orlando. But clearly, the Leafs have had yet another snub from an NHLer -- money isn't enough to draw them to the so-called center of the hockey universe. Wow.

Boyle Signs Three-Year Deal With Bolts

News: Brian Boyle signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Lightning on Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Brian Boyle offers skills as a face-off man, as a checker and can slot in at either center or on the wing, but that typically doesn't translate to much fantasy value. He totaled just six goals and 12 assists over 82 games last season, but should rank among the Bolts' leaders in hits during the upcoming campaign.

Rangers' Boyle To Test Market?

News: Brian Boyle, a pending unrestricted free agent, is said to be looking for a more impactful role this summer, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: What a difference a good postseason can make for Brian Boyle, who seriously increased his value during the Rangers' postseason run. After spending a good portion of last season in former head coach John Tortorella's doghouse last campaign, the 6-foot-7 forward seemed to flourish under head coach Alain Vigneault, albeit as a fourth-line winger. The 29-year-old former first-round pick kicked up his offensive production (eight points in 25 games) despite limited chances during the playoffs, and a move to another team could increase his playing time, but it's unlikely his fantasy output will change much.

Rangers' Boyle to Have Productive Series?

News: Brian Boyle registered an assist in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: Brian Boyle was also the team's best face-off man, while logging three hits, one shot on goal and two penalty minutes. The 29-year-old now has three of his seven postseason points in the last four contests. Considering the forward is facing the team who drafted him in the first round of 2003, it's plausible that he could have a fairly inspired series.

Rangers' Boyle To See Increase in Playing Time?

News: Brian Boyle registered a minus-1 and two penalty minutes in Saturday's 7-2, Game 1 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Although his ice time (12:39) took a dip from his 15-plus minutes in Game 7 against the Penguins, Brian Boyle won 82 percent of his faceoffs. With third line center Derick Brassard currently day-to-day, Boyle could see a substantial increase in playing time Monday if head coach Alain Vigneault decides to rest Brassard in Game 2.

Rangers' Boyle Scores In Game 7

News: Brian Boyle opened the scoring in Tuesday's Game 7 win over the Penguins, putting a first-period puck past Marc-Andre Fleury for his second postseason tally. He also blocked four shots and laid five hits.
Analysis: Brian Boyle and the rest of the Rangers' fourth line did a spectacular job of neutralizing Sidney Crosby in this series, so it's only fitting that he, Dominic Moore and Derek Dorsett were rewarded with a more tangible payoff for their fine efforts. A big part of the Rangers' success in these playoffs has been their ability to roll four lines, so expect Boyle and his mates to continue seeing solid ice time.

Rangers' Boyle Extends Point Streak

News: Brian Boyle buried an empty-net goal in a 4-2 win over Philadelphia in Game 5 on Sunday.
Analysis: That my friends is a three-game point streak for the once forgotten about 6'7 forward. Brian Boyle and linemate Dominic Moore proved to be the difference makers in just about 13-minutes of total ice time each. Boyle heads into Game 6 with three points (one goal), 17 hits and a plus-3 rating through five post season games.

Boyle Returning To Rangers' Fourth Line

News: Brian Boyle will return to his fourth-line duties against Carolina on Tuesday, reports The Record's Andrew Gross.
Analysis: After producing minimally (one assist) on the second line, Brian Boyle will once again play alongside Dominic Moore and Daniel Carcillo. While the reduced ice time will likely end any experimental waiver claims made by owners in deep leagues, the veteran forward could surprise us by producing in his return to a line that has shown tremendous chemistry at times. Boyle is plus-1 with six goals, 12 assists and 54 penalty minutes through 79 games played this season.

Rangers' Boyle Scores Rare Goal Friday

News: Brian Boyle scored just his sixth goal of the season during Friday's 4-3 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Brian Boyle averages just 12:41 in ice time per game, so the low scoring output isn't all that surprising. With just 17 points over 75 games, he is not one who is used often, if at all, in the fantasy world.

Rangers' Boyle Providing Surprise Production

News: Brian Boyle is currently in a three-game point-scoring drought.
Analysis: Brian Boyle has certainly been more productive under new head coach Alain Vigneault. Considering the forward consistently logs fourth line minutes, his four goals, nine assists and 50 penalty minutes through 59 games played should be considered a surprise production for his team, but not likely useful to most fantasy owners.

Rangers' Boyle Skidding Again

News: Brian Boyle has gone eight games without registering a point.
Analysis: While it should come as no surprise to you that Brian Boyle has been held off the scorer's sheet, the fourth line center has shown tremendous defensive spark for the team over the last four weeks. While he will occasionally go through spurts of offensive contribution (10 points), only fantasy owners searching for penalty minutes and hits in the deepest of leagues should consider Boyle's services.

Rangers' Boyle Mired In Slump

News: Brian Boyle, who has not registered a point in 16 games, is a minus-4 with 18 shots on goal during his drought.
Analysis: Of course it doesn't help when the forward is relegated to an estimated 12 minutes of average ice time per game. Although the organization doesn't expect a ton of production out of the former first-round pick (2003), if Brian Boyle doesn't start to make the most of his opportunities he may soon find himself serving as a healthy scratch for a struggling Rangers team.

Boyle Scores First Goal Of Season As Rangers Roll

News: Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-1 victory over the Penguins.
Analysis: Brian Boyle also added an assist on the Rangers' first goal of the game to finish with a plus-2 rating in what might have been the team's most complete game of the season. The fourth-liner now has five points in 15 games.
