Brian Boyle has seen a total of 17 minutes and 40 seconds of power play time this season. This is, admittedly, much less than I have thought Boyle has been on the ice for the power play this season. (11 of those minutes have come in the month of April, already).

In those near 18 minutes of TOTAL power play time, Brian Boyle has been on the ice for 2, count them, 2 New York Rangers power play goals this season. They both came in the game against Pittsburgh the day of the deadline. So that's 1 RANGERS goal, not just goals Boyle had a point on, I'm talking about NEW YORK RANGERS goals, per 530 seconds of power play time for Brian Boyle.

I conclude the resurgent look of the Rangers power play has more to do with the additions at the deadline rather than Boyle's time on ice during the power play.
I conclude 2 things. The Rangers PP was horrendous before the trade, and you just dont like Brian Boyle.

You can cherrypick similar stats to every Rangers players regarding the PP - ya know why? Because it stunk.

Its looked better lately with Boyle on it, so Im not ready to mess with it yet. Maybe thats because the mere mention of Boyle's name doesnt make me go crazy.
