Rangers forward Brian Boyle skated in his 300th NHL game Thursday night, finishing with a team-high four hits in 17:02 of ice time. It was his second-highest ice time total this season, and most since Feb. 17 when he logged 17:52 against the Washington Capitals.
264 of Boyle's 300 games have come in a Rangers uniform, including back-to-back seasons of 82 games. He has 45 goals and 79 points in his career.
Hank Doing His Part
Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist finished the night with 26 saves and has now allowed three goals or fewer in his last 14 starts, posting a 7-6-1 record with a 1.98 goals against average and a .929 save percentage.
The last game he allowed more than three goals was Feb. 26th against the Winnipeg Jets, when he allowed four.
Kreider Shooting the Puck
Rookie Chris Kreider registered four shots on goal — to match his career-high —for the second consecutive game Thursday night in 12:58 of ice time.
Miller, Hamrlik Blocking Rubber
Rookie J.T. Miller and defenseman Roman Hamrlik tied for the game-high three blocked shots. Miller was credited with two hits in 17:22 of ice time, while Hamrlik logged 12:46, the most he's had since his first game with the Rangers on March 7 against the New York Islanders when he finished with 15:48.
