The Rangers lineup will stay the same as it has been for the past two games Tuesday night when they face the Bruins at the TD BankNorth Garden.
That means forward Brian Boyle will be a healthy scratch for the third straight game after the 6-foot-6 center played the first nine games of the season.
“It’s not up to me who goes into the lineup, it’s up to them,” coach John Tortorella said after the morning skate. “I like the way our guys played the last game, so I don’t necessarily look at it as urgency to get a guy in.”
There are three guys that have been recently inserted (or reinserted) into the lineup whom are holding Boyle out. Two are rookies – 19-year-old J.T. Miller, set to play his fourth career NHL game; and Chris Kreider, who previously missed five games with a bone chip in his right ankle. Then there is recent trade acquisition Darroll Powe, who has a similar game to Boyle but has been playing solid in an increased role for the fourth line.
