His line scored a goal tonight because he had nothing to do with the puck. Richards to Kreider to DZ, back to Kreider; goal. No Boyle in the sequence. Early in the game CK set him up in the circle and he fanned. He played average otherwise. That's why. He cannot be playing on the 3rd line anymore.
Honestly the penalty call on Boyle was more of a weak call/embellishment than it was a senseless play by him. If every player fell down every time they were brushed by the arm of a guy who is trying to get around him, we would be watching soccer. And on the high stick, it was on the follow through on a dump in and Simmons was hunched over. If anything it would've been an unfortunate accident of a penalty.

Also, as pointed out just above you, Boyle drove to the net on the goal. What else could you ask of him in that sequence? He did his job without the puck.
