The only thing I dont like about benching Boyle is that it takes away our second best penalty killing forward against a team with a decent PP, while our PK has been absoultely dismal.

This is the season of special teams.

We know Torts. He's going to put out the twelve forwards he thinks is going to give them the best chance to win. Miller came out and earned his second game. Halpern earned his spot. Kreider earned his spot. Cally is coming back, and is the 4th best forward on the team, so you know he's playing. Boyle hasn't looked engaged. Hopefully this wakes him up.

Honestly, I'm in shock at how this lineup looks. It looks GOOD. A lot depends on the play of a 19 year old in his 2nd NHL game, but if his first game is any indicator, it's a good thing.

I'm excited to see these 4 lines.
i agree boyle/stepan have been pretty bad this year. Stepan better up his game and stop fanning on wide open shots

I believe that we are actually on pace to have the single worst power play in NHL history. Granted this is a 48 game schedule but still.

Matt Gilroy and Stu Bickel as the third pair? God help us...

@StapeNewsday: Move is cap-related -- #Isles needed to be over the floor by tomorrow, needed insurance against not being cap compliant the entire season.

Watch Thomas dress for the game, despite all odds, out of disdain for Lundqvist and his socialist home country and post a 57 save shutout.

Calling it.

Wasn't Gilroy and Bickel the third pair last game? Why are people just freaking out now?

lol.

We scratched off our best faceoff man, best PKer, best defensive forward, best shutdown forward and tallest player in a divisional game. What a joke.
