No reason was given for his departure from the game, but on Boyle's final shift of the first period, he was hip-checked by Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn along the wall in the Philadelphia end during a New York power play and appeared to be favoring his right leg.
He left the game with 6:09 remaining in the period and did not return after playing five shifts, totaling 4:21 of ice time.
The Rangers said he will not return to the game.
Boyle has two goals and three assists in 37 games this season.
