Dan Boyle Skates, Talks After Practice Today

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

What he doesn’t remember is getting knocked out on a hit from behind by the Blues’ Maxim Lapierre, or getting stretchered off of the ice minutes later. He had to watch the video later to see what everyone else saw in the corner of the Scottrade Center.

“I wanted to see it right away. … I certainly wanted to find out how it happened,” Boyle said on Thursday at TD Garden. “I’ve been in this league for a long time, and a big reason is because I don’t put myself in those types of situations, where I’m susceptible to those kinds of hits. That’s why I wanted to see it. I still have a hard time believing that it actually happened.”

In his first public comments since the incident, Boyle expanded on one of the scarier moments in the history of the Sharks franchise, when he was unconscious for several minutes after the illegal hit.

He used the word “concussion” but later backtracked, saying that none of the doctors have used that term since the injury. Still, Boyle and the Sharks will err on the side of caution in his recovery, even though the defenseman said he would like to return to active duty before the end of the current road trip next Wednesday in Los Angeles.
