Read: Brian Boyle Is Glad To Be Returning

After being scratched the previous three games, Brian Boyle returns to the Rangers lineup tonight against the Islanders.

Boyle said this morning that he wants to play and “it sucks not playing. Now I’m playing so I am happy.”

He added that jump in his game or motivation has never been an issue for him, “I gotta play better. I gotta go out and play hockey and not worry about anything else. I can do it, I have done it before and I need to do it again.”

Boyle said that he has to be sharper on the PK and create offense if he is going to play 13, 14, 15 minutes a night.
