Boyle was fine tonight, and that's okay... But he can't be playing the minutes he and his line did when:

A) They did not prevent goals as they were trusted to
B) Could not finish chances
C) The team is trailing/struggling to score

That line had good possession, and Hagelin was very good. But aside from those things, Boyle/Fedotenko couldn't finish (and they shouldn't be expected to), and they didn't do what they were supposed to do (shut down Spezza and co). Tortorella has done a great job this season, but I disagree with the way he used that line tonight... Heavily.
