Boyle's Year: Point-by-Point

Anyone who wonders what forward Brian Boyle meant to the Rangers in 2011-12 needs to only look at one statistic to realize his value. In the 25 regular season games in which Boyle had a goal or assist, the Rangers were a staggering 20-4-1. When he had a point in the playoffs, the Rangers went 4-2. Indeed, Boyle at his best has been a huge part of the Rangers' equation over the past two seasons, as he not only scores but also kills penalties, wins faceoffs and blocks shots. It's sometimes easy to forget that the big man from Boston is only 27 years old and just now entering his prime years as a pro. Here's a photographic review of every game in which Boyle registered a point this season.
