Brad Boyes RW FLA 16 Days

Boyes joined in the fun Friday, grabbing a goal and an assist in a thrilling 6-5 win over the Flames.

Boyes was one of nine (!) players to post a multi-point performance in this one, bringing his season total to eight goals and 18 points in the process. The Panthers are very much doing their scoring by committee, with their top six leading scorers lumped into the 18-24 point range, so we'd caution not to expect anything too prolific from the one-time 72-point man.

Boyes scored the game-winning goal and had five shots on goal Friday against Buffalo.

Boyes now has seven goals and 16 points in 34 games, to go with a plus-one rating. Skating on the second line, the former 40-goal scorer is a decent fantasy option on a Panthers team that is 3-1-1 in their past five games. The 32-year-old should come close to the 40-point mark in 2014-15.

Boyes was a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Penguins.

Boyes had been battling a back injury in recent days, and though he's now ostensibly healthy, it seems coach Gerard Gallant just wanted to give him an extended rest with a four-day Christmas break set to come for the Panthers. Veteran Tomas Fleischmann was rested in a similar vein, with youngsters Jimmy Hayes and Brandon Pirri drawing into the lineup in their places.

Boyes will not play Thursday against the Flyers due to an upper-body injury, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

It seemed apparent based on the Panthers' morning skate that coach Gerard Gallant would use the same lineup Thursday that he went with in Tuesday's shootout win over the Capitals, but it appears Boyes may have been concealing the injury during that time. He's considered day-to-day for now, and it would seem the Panthers are hoping to have him available for Saturday's game in Pittsburgh. Brandon Pirri will assume his spot in the lineup Thursday.

Boyes netted a rebound for his first goal of the season against the Capitals on Saturday.

Although Boyes started the game on the Panthers fourth line, he scored the only goal for the team on the power play and ended the night with 20:10 minutes of ice time leading all forwards. Boyes also had two shots on goal, two hits, and one blocked shot. This was Boyes best outing of the season and with the Panthers not generating much offence, expect them to put Boyes back in positions to succeed on the scoresheet.
