NEW YORK (WFAN) - Rangers forward Brian Boyle is not sure whether he’ll play in Saturday’s Eastern Conference Semifinal opener against the Capitals at Madison Square Garden, Newsday reported.

The Massachusetts native suffered his first ever concussion after the Senators’ Chris Neil hit him viciously in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

On Friday, Boyle skated hard with the team for the first time since his injury, the paper confirmed. He rode on the bike and received clearance to participate with the team, but his status for Game 1 remains unknown.

Brandon Dubinsky, on the other hand, was not on the ice on Friday, Newsday said. The 25-year-old center is dealing with what is said to be a lower-body injury.

After scoring just 11 goals in 82 regular-season games, Boyle led New York with three scores in only five games against Ottawa in the first round of the playoffs.
