Brian Boyle

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.

Brian Boyle, C, NYR Rangers' Boyle Providing Surprise Production

Brian Boyle

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.

Brian Boyle

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.

Brian Boyle

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.

Boyle Has Assist In Rangers' Win

News: Brian Boyle had an assist on the Rangers' first goal in a 3-2 win over Detroit on Saturday.
Analysis: His first point in two and a half weeks comes just in time, as Brian Boyle was on the edge of speculative healthy-scratch status. In showing chemistry with the Rangers' offensive star of the game, Benoit Pouliot, he may have bought himself some more time. While we're nowhere near suggesting you pick him up in standard formats, it won't hurt owners in the deepest of leagues to add him to the watch list.

Rangers' Boyle Still Centering

News: Most of Brian Boyle's ice time during the Blue/White scrimmage on Sunday was spent as a center, reports Steve Zipay of Newsday.
Analysis: It's a bit surprising, as most speculated that the arrival of Dominic Moore meant Brian Boyle could switch back to the wing. But the absence of restricted free-agent holdout Derek Stepan and the presence of multiple inexperienced wingers has left Boyle to fill the void. He had only two goals and five points in 38 games last season before going 3-2-5 in 11 playoff games, and as he enters the final year of his contract, the one-time first-rounder's offensive output remains hard to predict.

Rangers' Signing Of Moore To Boost Boyle?

News: With the signing of experienced center Dominic Moore, Brian Boyle will reportedly see more ice time as a winger, reports Steve Zipay of Newsday.
Analysis: Brian Boyle was listed as a healthy scratch by former head coach John Tortorella for numerous games. Between the hiring of new head coach Alain Vigneault and the signing of Moore, he's loving the Rangers' offseason thus far. It is believed that the 6-7 forward could bounce back from a silent (five points in 38 games) lockout shortened campaign in the wing slot.

Rangers' Boyle Nets Clutch Goal

News: Brian Boyle scored a power-play goal during Thursday's 4-3 overtime victory over Boston.
Analysis: A season-long member of head coach John Tortorella's dog house, Brian Boyle's goal helped snap an abysmal 0-for-23 streak for the Blueshirts. It also snapped a five game point scoring drought for the veteran center.

Boyle Nets Rangers' Lone Goal

News: Brian Boyle scored the Rangers' only goal in Friday's Game 5 loss to Washington in the team's Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
Analysis: Brian Boyle also took a penalty late in the game that did not sit well with Rangers' coach John Tortorella, but the penalty was killed off. Since being a healthy scratch in Game 1, Boyle has two goals and an assist in four games and is one of the team's more important two-way players.

Rangers' Boyle Major Factor In Win

News: Brian Boyle had a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 Game 3 win over Washington.
Analysis: After missing seven straight games with a leg injury, Brian Boyle is seeing increased ice time, including power-play minutes. Boyle is plus-4 with six goals and five assists in 16 career games versus the Capitals.

Rangers' Boyle Returns To Action

News: Brian Boyle (leg) played in Game 2 of the Rangers' 1-0 loss in Washington on Saturday night.
Analysis: He returned to the tune of 18 shifts for nearly 12 minutes of action, totaling six hits and one shot on goal. Brian Boyle, who had not played since April 16, won four of nine face-off attempts.

Rangers' Boyle Still Out

News: Brian Boyle (leg) won't play Thursday against the Caps, Newsday reports.
Analysis: On the plus side, Brian Boyle skated Thursday morning, suggesting that he might be able to return at some point during the Rangers' first-round series against Washington.

Brian Boyle

Rangers' Boyle Iffy For Game 1

News: Brian Boyle (leg) did not practice Tuesday, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With Brian Boyle spotted walking with a bit of a limp Tuesday, it doesn't seem likely that he will be available for Thursday's playoff opener.

4/18/2013

Brian Boyle, C, NYR

Brian Boyle

Rangers' Boyle Out Indefinetly

News: Brian Boyle is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, the Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Such a broad timetable would seem to imply that we probably won't see Brian Boyle again before the close of the regular season and if that is the case, he'll finish up with just two goals and five points to go along with 29 points in 38 games.

Brian Boyle

Rangers' Boyle Suffers Apparent Leg Injury Tuesday

News: Brian Boyle suffered an apparent right leg injury during Tuesday's game against the Flyers and will not return, the Bergen Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Brian Boyle limped off the ice after suffering the injury during the first period, and with a return to Tuesday's game ruled out, he should be considered day-to-day until the Rangers elaborate.

Rangers' Boyle Loses Points In Scoring Changes

News: Brian Boyle lost his goal and one of his assists from Wednesday's game to scoring changes.
Analysis: Tough break for Brian Boyle, whose huge four-point night turns into a nice two-assist night.

Rangers' Boyle: Career-High Four Points

News: Brian Boyle set a new personal best for points in a game Wednesday, posting a goal and three assists in a 6-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Analysis: Brian Boyle showed immense chemistry with the newly acquired Derick Brassard. It's been almost a year to the day (April 5, 2012) since Boyle's last multi-point night, and the points were Boyle's first in 11 games. The most encouraging sign is that he contributed on the power play. Don't go grabbing him yet, but keep him on your radar, as Boyle can go on hot streaks offensively.

Brian Boyle

Rangers' Boyle Notches First Goal

News: Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Brian Boyle, a healthy scratch Friday for the fourth time this season, was a plus-1 in 15:30 worth of ice time Sunday. Lighting the lamp in his return could help his chances of staying in the Rangers' lineup going forward.

Brian Boyle

Boyle Late Scratch For Rangers

News: Brian Boyle was a late healthy-scratch for the Rangers in Friday's loss to Ottawa, making room in the lineup for Brad Richards, the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Brian Boyle was participating in pre-game warmups, but gave way to Brad Richards. There is no word yet as to whether Boyle will play Sunday against Washington.

Rangers Call On Boyle

News: Brian Boyle is slated to return to the Rangers' lineup Thursday against the Islanders after three consecutive scratches, the Daily News reports.
Analysis: It looks like Brian Boyle's return will be at the expense of Chris Kreider, with Boyle -- who has just one point in nine games to date -- presumably fired up in his return from his recent stint in the press box.

Brian Boyle

Rangers Scratch Boyle Again

News: Brian Boyle will be scratched for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: With just one point in nine games to date, Brian Boyle is off to a slow start statistically, but he'll no doubt rejoin the Rangers' forward mix in time, perhaps re-energized.

Rangers Scratch Boyle Again For Game Against Lightning

News: Rangers head coach John Tortorella has reportedly scratched Brian Boyle for the contest Sunday against the Lightning, reports Steve Zipay of Newsday
Analysis: That's two games in a row as a healthy scratch for Brian Boyle. He has played nine games this season amounting to a minus-3 with just one assist. It will be interesting to see how Boyle responds if he does crack the lineup again.

Rangers' Boyle Scratched For Isles Game

News: Brian Boyle will reportedly miss Thursday's tilt against the Islanders as a healthy scratch, tweets Steve Zipay
Analysis: In nine games this season, Brian Boyle is a minus-3 with one assist. The streaky Boyle played in all 82 games for Rangers the last two seasons. Zipay tweeted Boyle's response. "No moral victories when you're 4-5...not for lack of effort. I work as hard as I can every day. It's focus, don't have edge I need."
