He was also assessed a 5 minute penalty (or was it 7?), suspended (which was a crime, imo...he did nothing to Boyle that Boyle hadn't done to Karlsson first), not re-signed and Ottawa lost the series, so it didn't really do any good from the perspective of anybody.
The real retribution for Boyle's bullying of Karlsson was when Chris Neil took him out of the series on a legal (if clearly an intent to injure, which is never, ever called) hit. Rangers may have won the series, but Boyle got knocked so loopy on that one play he hasn't been an effective player since.
