New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle has played in 704 games over 12 seasons for five teams. He’s scored 109 career goals but has never notched a hat trick — until Monday night in Pittsburgh. The best part? It was on the Penguins‘ Hockey Fights Cancer night.

Boyle, 34, was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia in September 2017 after a training camp physical. He played through the 2017-18 season while undergoing treatment. Two weeks ago, he found out that he was in remission.

Boyle scored a goal in the first period of Monday night’s 5-1 win to give the Devils a 2-1 lead over the Penguins. He then scored back-to-back power-play goals in the third to give his team a cushy 4-1 lead. All goals came against Pittsburgh starter Matt Murray. Boyle now has six goals on the season.
