Game 6: Sharks vs. New York Rangers

San Jose remains undefeated in regulation. Playing the second half of a back-to-back on the road against a rested opponent is as close as it gets to a schedule loss in the NHL but the Sharks will try to defy the odds this afternoon against a Dan Boyle-less New York Rangers club that hasn't played since Thursday night. It helps that they'll have a rested Alex Stalock in net as the coaching staff continues their gameplan of alternating starters that has served them extremely well in the early going this season. With a 2-0-1 record thus far on their five-game road trip San Jose could probably...

Options without Boyle; Duclair's journey; Rangers facing problems

Today's New York Rangers notes. Tuesday is another day, on in this particular one, the Rangers will host the 2-0 Islanders as the team tries to rebound from a shaky home-opener. There's no asterisks next to those Islander wins, albeit they came against the Hurricanes, but Tuesday should prove a stiffer test for the Islanders, while neither team needs much motivation when they meet on the schedule. And now, your morning notes. What exactly are the Rangers options for the next 4-6 weeks without the services of defenseman and power play quarterback Dan Boyle? We broke them down for you....

Dan Boyle Injury: What Are The Rangers' Defensive Options?

The Rangers do have some options with Boyle's injury. Are they good options? No, no they are not. The only positive outlook for the New York Rangers current injury woes is it's happening earlier rather than later. The Rangers are still without their first line center Derek Stepan for at least seven more games. To compound that, the Rangers defense hasn't looked even close to comfortable since Dan Boyle broke his hand in the first game of the season. It's not as though the Rangers don't have options to replacing Boyle (more at even strength than on the power play); it's that none of those...

Rangers vs. Blue Jackets preview: Even without Boyle, the power play is still in better shape

Many assume when the Rangers lost Dan Boyle the team took the biggest hit on the power play, but that's not the case. Dan Boyle was, among other things, signed this offseason to help correct the Rangers power play issues. With a lack of puck movement, a lack of a big shot from the point, and a total lack of ability to carry the puck into the offensive zone to begin orchestrating the action, Boyle could check 'yes' in all of those regards with respect to his skill set. But only 42:50 into Boyle's New York Rangers debut, the defenseman went down to block a shot, breaking his hand, and...

Rangers’ Dan Boyle injured in win over St. Louis Blues, has broken hand, could miss 4-6 weeks

Rangers’ Dan Boyle injured in win over St. Louis Blues, has broken hand, could miss 4-6 weeks

The Rangers’ defensive depth was a cause of concern during training camp. Now, it will be tested. Veteran Dan Boyle, who was brought in this offseason to the Blueshirts’ second pair in lieu of re-signing Anton Stralman, broke his right hand during Thursday night’s 3-2 win over the Blues and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, coach Alain Vigneault said postgame.

Rangers 3, Blues 2: Boyle out 4-6 weeks

It was a good start in the win-loss column for the Rangers, who beat a tough and physical Blues squad, 3-2, tonight at Scottrade Center. But the victory came at a price. Coach Alain Vigneault announced after the game defenseman Dan Boyle broke his hand blocking a shot and will be out 4-6 weeks. At 1:53 of the third period, Boyle blocked Jori Lehtera’s slap shot. That was his last shift of the game. Boyle walked through the dressing room and it appeared to be his right hand that had been injured. So Matt Hunwick now may make his Rangers’ debut Saturday at Columbus. The Rangers will...

New York Rangers News: Dan Boyle out 4-6 weeks with a broken hand

In Dan Boyle's very first game as a Ranger, he suffered a serious hand injury that will keep him out for an extended period. Dan Boyle had a shaky start to his Rangers debut, and then things went from mediocre to worse when Boyle blocked a shot in the second period that forced him out of the game. In his postgame media availability, Alain Vigneault revealed Boyle broke his hand on the shot, and will miss the next 4-6 weeks as a result. Dan Boyle broke his hand blocking a shot. Out 4-6 weeks. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) October 10, 2014 The Rangers were forced to play virtually the...

New Ranger Dan Boyle feels the pace picking up

More than any Ranger except perhaps Martin St. Louis, Dan Boyle has seen his share of training camps. But the biggest change noticeable in the 38-year-old defenseman's first camp in New York is easy to describe.

Boyle seeks unpredictable power play

Last season with the Sharks, Dan Boyle scored exactly half of his points - six of 12 goals and 12 of 24 assists - on the power play. In the 38-year-old’s 15 NHL seasons, he’s scored 66 goals and added 215 assists on the man advantage. When the Rangers signed him to a two-year, $9 million deal on July 1, a good portion of that money was spent for him to lead the power play. Today and Wednesday were the first intensive power-play practices of training camp and it appears Boyle will quarterback the power play alongside Ryan McDonagh on the point. He’s been through this drill...
