Boyle's Top 5

From June 4-20, BlueshirtsUnited.com is counting down some of the most memorable moments for several Rangers players in 2011-12. We continue today with a look back at forward Brian Boyle's season. Although his points and goals totals dropped a bit, Boyle managed to set a career-high with 16 assists in 2011-12 and continued to provide key intangibles, particularly his talents as a penalty-killer. He got off to a fast start in the postseason, scoring goals in three straight games vs. Ottawa before suffering a concussion in Game 5. Although he came back after missing three games due to the injury, Boyle was hardly at full speed for the remainder of the playoffs. Here are five great Boyle moments from his third full season with the Blueshirts.

No. 5 -- March 28 at Winnipeg


Boyle breaks 2-2 tie with game-winning goal at 3:07 of the third period.



No. 4 -- April 12 vs. Sens at MSG (Round 1, Game 1)


Boyle scores the eventual game-winner for a 3-0 lead at 19:06 of the second period.




No. 3 -- March 11 vs. Islanders at MSG


Boyle ties game 3-3 at 3:29 of third period, opening door to dramatic overtime win.




No. 2 -- March 1 at Carolina


Boyle sets up Brandon Prust for game-winning goal, 3-1 lead at 1:57 of third period.




No. 1 -- April 16 at Ottawa (Round 1, Game 3)


Boyle's goal at 7:35 of third period is all Rangers need for 1-0 victory.
