Devils' Brian Boyle scores first goal since cancer diagnosis in incredibly emotional moment

New Jersey's current slide (0-2-1) began with a 6-3 loss at Edmonton on Friday, which marked the highest goal output of the season for the Oilers' league-worst offense.

Boyle, who was playing his fifth game of the season after being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia on September 19, scored 5:33 into the first period to give the Devils a 1-0 lead.

The Devils' Brian Boyle opened the scoring 5:33 into the game when he tracked down his own rebound and flipped it over Cam Talbot's pad.

"I've never cried after a goal before", he said, searching for the words. "It was a wave of different things". She's had to deal with a lot more than I'd say I have gone through.

The Oilers (6-8-1) have now won consecutive games for the first time all season.

Oilers forwards Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl continue to prove that they are not only the most unsafe skaters in Edmonton, but the entire National Hockey League.

Talbot made 32 saves for the win in his 200th career game.

It took 15 games, but the Edmonton Oilers finally have a winning streak.

But that goal would be the only tally of the first period for the Devils, who wasted some key opportunities while outshooting the Oilers, 12-7, over the first 20 minutes.

Brian Boyle and Drew Stafford scored, and Cory Schneider made 29 saves for the Devils (9-4-2), who have lost four straight.

"We had some chances", Schneider said.
