The team played far worse defensively for far longer than in the Boston game and guess what Boyle was in the game. Played a lot too.
I think it's fair to say that benching him light a bit of a fire under Boyle and led to a better performance, which I'm sure Torts had considered. We've got some good production from our call-ups and I think it's one of the things Tortorello has done well this year.

Hopefully he continues to get some good play with tinkering when guys start getting complacent, and that we see a rejuvenated Kreider when he's called up again.
