"It was spectacular. I'll never forget this experience," said the 33-year-old who has 20 more penalty minutes than points this season. But after beating cancer at the beginning of the season and helping the Devils compete for a playoff spot, Boyle was one of the main attractions in Tampa Bay. He didn't record a point in the Metropolitan Division's loss to the Atlantic.

The veteran finished the game with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and one hit in 15:10 of ice time. Boyle now has eight goals and three assists in 22 games this season. The fact that he's accomplished this after battling cancer earlier this season is pretty remarkable. Steven Santini and Blake Coleman also scored for the Devils in this one.

Brian Boyle couldn't help but cry after scoring his first goal on Thursday since being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia.

"I can usually separate it," Boyle said. "It was a wave of a number of different things. My family, my wife [Lauren] has been through the ringer. I’m not playing tonight, I’m not here, if it’s not for her and my family and these guys in here. I guess it’s a little bit bigger tonight than it has been ever." Boyle missed the start of the season after the diagnosis, but was able to resume his NHL career on Nov. 1. Thursday's contest was his fifth game since returning.
