Boyle to play in 1,000th NHL game tonight

Veteran defenseman Dan Boyle, who has spent the bulk of his career with the Lightning and Sharks, will play in his milestone 1,000th NHL game tonight when the Rangers face the Red Wings here at Joe Louis Arena. “It’s a lot of hard work,” Boyle, 38, said. “Looking back, all the offseason workouts, the workouts on off days. There’s a lot more that goes into it than 1,000 games. It’s not easy. I’m just thankful that I’ve gotten to this point.” Boyle will become the 298th player in NHL history to reach the milestone – and the 101st who was primarily a defenseman, per the...

Lundqvist taking low shots; Boyle, St. Louis re-inserted onto top power play unit

A somewhat newsworthy Rangers practice today here in Greenburgh, N.Y. as the NHL enters the final week before next Monday’s trade deadline. For one, coach Alain Vigneault altered his power play units, re-inserting quarterback Dan Boyle - signed to a two-year, $9 million deal mainly for his skills in leading the man advantage - and Marty St. Louis, who now has four goals in his last four games, back onto the top power play unit. Rick Nash was given today’s practice off for maintenance - Vigneault said there would be no issues with his availability for Tuesday night’s game against the...

Live Blog: Rangers rally for wild 6-5 win over Isles

The Rangers will have Dan Boyle in tonight’s lineup after all against the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum in a game with serious implications in the Metropolitan Division race. Boyle, as noted earlier today, participated in the morning skate but was termed a game-time decision by both himself and coach Alain Vigneault. Boyle missed Saturday’s 5-1 win at Arizona due to a stomach flu and said today was the first time he’s been able to eat a regular meal. Boyle hesitated after the morning skate when asked whether his strength had returned, stressing he needed to see how he felt after he...

Morning skate report: Boyle a game-time decision

The Rangers try for a fourth time tonight, here at Nassau Coliseum, to defeat the Metropolitan Division-leading Islanders after losing the first three games all by three goal margins. Here’s the preview from today’s Record. Defenseman Dan Boyle, who missed Saturday night’s 5-1 win at Arizona due to a stomach flu, was on the ice for today’s morning skate but both he and coach Alain Vigneault said it would be a game-time decision whether Boyle plays. If he doesn’t, both Matt Hunwick and John Moore will remain in the lineup. “I’m feeling better as far as I was able to go out and...

Boyle adjusting to role as a third-pair defenseman

The Rangers are not conducting a morning skate here in Glendale, Ariz. on this final day of the fathers’ trip. They play the Coyotes tonight at 8 p.m. New York time in the third game of a four-game road trip. If things remain the same from Friday’s practice and the recent games, Dan Boyle will start tonight as a third-pair defenseman, either with John Moore or Matt Hunwick, who have been alternating as the team’s sixth defenseman. Boyle has spent a lot of time this season answer questions about his role in his first season with the Rangers and, until recently, his struggles in terms of...
