His work down low was good. Fantastic, didn't stop the other team from taking it back down the ice against his line and scoring.
Boyle whiffed on good chances, got scored on when he was on the ice, and also because i'm mad at him i'm gonna say he somehow deflected blame off himself when everyone was saying Arty gaffe'd on the first goal (not Arty's fault Boyle doesn't know how to handle a ****ing pass.) Arty passed it to him and what does Boyle do? What he usually does, **** up the pass and not do anything productive with it.
He did nothing to warrant the minutes he got (and gets), yet he got them (and gets them, and probably will continue to get them sadly.)
Yeah it was very disappointing to see Arty get benched when Boyle f'd the play up. He was turned around backwards as the pass was being made and took himself out. Arty thinks he has a competent player reading the play so he makes a pass to break an odd man rush and next thing you know he's benched. Fedotenko and Hagelin were great tonight, it's a shame Boyle was between them.
And to everyone complaining about people complaining, Boyle has been bad for over a year now. It's not like this just started. He doesn't take the body anymore, can't stay on his skates, and has no confidence offensively. We know he's a 4th line player, it's Torts that doesn't see that. It's frustrating to see a guy like Boyle get all the 3rd period minutes knowing he's not gonna score when you're down by 1 in a tight game. Brian Boyle should not lead the forwards in icetime. EVER.
