Rangers forward Brian Boyle is doing better in coming back from the concussion he suffered in Game 5 against Ottawa.
Boyle practiced with the Rangers today and told NHL.com’s Dan Rosen that while he’s feeling better, he has no idea when he’ll be back in the Rangers lineup.
“It’s progressed, but they’re (concussions) not consistent with each guy,” Boyle said. “Each guy feels different symptoms. So, I’m just trying to be honest with myself.”
In Boyle’s stead, rookie Chris Kreider has helped make a name for himself and established what you’d have to think is a permanent spot in the Rangers lineup. With Boyle and Brandon Dubinsky out of the lineup in Game 1, the Rangers opted to go with seven defensemen seeing Steve Eminger play his first game of the postseason on the fourth line.
As for Dubinsky, he was seen in the locker room on crutches. Dubinsky was injured in Game 7 and missed Game 1 with a leg injury and Rangers coach John Tortorella offered no update on his status.
