His work down low, on the puck, around the net, were very good. His defensive play was very good.
His faceoff were bad. Not finishing his chances was unfortunate.
Wolski was bad. Wolski is dumb as **** and lazy. That's why he was benched in the third.
Boyle outplayed most of the team.
People want a scapegoat and are looking at the wrong guy.
Did Gaborik score? Richards? Callahan? Stepan? Anisimov? Anisimov's bad decision led to the first goal against.
Boyle, Hagelin, Fedetenko, and Prust were the most effective forwards tonight. And they shouldn't be expected to carry the load. They're depth.
I think this thread is more about Boyle getting close to 20 min. of ice time with being the top playing forward. No one is expecting him to be a top goal scorer.
