Do you know what confirmation bias is? It seems when Boyle gets benched, it's because he's terrible, but when Moore/Halpern get benched it's because of bad management.

I'm sure you have some support for that? No? Of course not, because it's wrong. Boyle's assist last night was his 1st secondary assist on the season, the other five were primary assists (Source). And last night's assist wasn't serendipitous, it was a stretch pass that lead to the rush by Kreider and Stepan.

Moore has played in 26 games this season. In 18 of them (and 2 of the past 3) he's played less minutes than Boyle.
