Boyle notched quite the memorable tally Thursday evening.
Roughly 5:30 into the first period of the contest with the Edmonton Oilers at Prudential Center, the 32-year-old struck a rebound past Edmonton goaltender Cam Talbot for the game's opening score. It's also Boyle's first goal since the diagnosis.
He was understandably overcome with emotion following a play he'll likely never forget:
Boyle Strong, indeed.
