Rangers Beat Blues But Lose Dan Boyle To A Broken Hand

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It happens every time, doesn’t it, that injuries strike teams in areas in which they are most vulnerable?

It happened to the Rangers in training camp when Derek Stepan suffered a broken leg that will sideline him for at least the first 10 games, thus removing the club’s No. 1 center from an already quite thin depth chart down the middle.

And it happened to the Blueshirts yet again in Thursday’s pulsating, season-opening 3-2 victory over the Blues when Dan Boyle sustained a broken right hand that will sideline him for four-to-six weeks and thus force the Rangers to dip into a very, very questionable reserve list on the blue line that currently features Matt Hunwick as next up.

The injury to Boyle — blocking a Jori Lehtera shot 1:53 into the third period — will present a hurdle for the Rangers to overcome, but it surely did not dampen the club’s enthusiasm following the victory achieved on Rick Nash’s second goal of the night that broke a 2-2 deadlock with 1:50 to go in the third period.

continued and watch the video below to see how Boyle suffered the break....
