Rangers C Boyle expected to be out at least all weekend because of right leg injury

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers centre Brian Boyle missed New York's game against the Florida Panthers on Thursday night because of a right leg injury and is expected to sit out at least two more critical contests in the drive to the playoffs.

Boyle was injured in the first period of the Rangers' 4-2 loss at Philadelphia on Tuesday night and didn't return. New York coach John Tortorella said Thursday that Boyle would also be sidelined for a game at Buffalo on Friday and at home against New Jersey on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Boyle has two goals and three assists in 38 games this season, his fourth with the Rangers.

Chris Kreider, recalled from Connecticut of the AHL on Wednesday, took his place in the lineup Thursday.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
