According to a report, the New York Rangers will be without forward Brian Boyle for an indefinite period of time due to a lower-body injury.
Boyle has two goals and five points in 38 games for the Rangers, who are battling the Winnipeg Jets and Buffalo Sabres for the eighth Stanley Cup Playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers host the Florida Panthers on Thursday and travel to face the Sabres on Friday.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
