Rangers forward Boyle leaves with injury
The New York Rangers started the second period without forward Brian Boyle.

PHILADELPHIA -- The New York Rangers started the second period without forward Brian Boyle.

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.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
