Ah, the simplifications that suit our needs. Boyle wasn't in the lineup. The Rangers won. Obviously, then, the Rangers won because they didn't have Boyle in.

I guess the fact that Lundqvist had a save percentage of .936 over that stretch compared to .910 the rest of the year is negligible.

[But of course that's a stat, so it's meaningless. Obviously the only method to evaluate players is to watch them play and draw a picture of how they make you feel. That's how he know Jeff Halpern produces more offense than Boyle, despite not producing more offense than Boyle. That's also how we know that Kreider and Miller control the play when the're on the ice, despite those pesky stats that show they don't.]

The human mind is great at finding patterns where none exist. Did you know the Rangers are undefeated on Wednesday this season?
