the avery voros boyle line has been the most consistent effort wise of any live we have. they play a simple game that often physically traps the other team in their zone. I wish torts wouldn't touch it

@Nicholas, couldn't agree more about that line, Boyle has won me over since the start of the year, solid player, great PK.
