OTTAWA, CANADA - APRIL 16: Brian Boyle #22 of the New York Rangers celebrates his third period goal against the Ottawa Senators in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the Scotiabank Place on April 16, 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Given John Tortorella’s reluctance to talk injuries (or pretty much anything) during the playoffs, we probably shouldn’t expect to hear a detailed report on Brian Boyle’s status.

Boyle hasn’t played since Saturday when he was run over by Senators forward Chris Neil. He didn’t travel to Ottawa for Game 6 and didn’t practice today.

He did, however, speak briefly – very briefly – with Newsday’s Arthur Staples after leaving the trainers’ room.

“I feel OK,” said Boyle, who suffered a concussion on the Neil hit.

Boyle’s OK-ness aside, the fact he’s not even skating suggests he’ll miss tomorrow’s Game 7 at Madison Square Garden.
