Boyes (upper body) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Penguins, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Boyes was a surprise scratch Thursday against the Flyers due to the injury, but since he was able to practice Friday, the Panthers never considered the ailment to be serious. Brandon Pirri will head back to the press box Saturday in order for Boyes to reclaim his spot in the lineup.

Boyes (upper body) was present during Friday's practice, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

While Boyes' participation in on-ice activities Friday is seemingly a good sign, coach Gerard Gallant was reluctant to declare him ready to play Saturday in Pittsburgh. The team should reach a decision on his status following their morning skate that day.

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.

Boyes was moved from the top line down to the fourth line in practice on Wednesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Boyes has gone pointless in the first three games of the season. He had three shots on goal with two penalty minutes in 16:16 minutes of ice time last game against Ottawa. Being moved to the fourth line could mean limited success for his upcoming game against the Sabres on Friday.
