Boyle Returns To Tampa, Wants To “Stick It To ‘Em”

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

(Dan) Boyle said “it’s only natural” to want to play well against a former team. “I’m like anybody else.” He was more direct with San Jose’s Mercury News.

“I’m not going to sit here and lie and say that it doesn’t mean anything,” he told the paper. “As a player, as a competitive person, you want to stick it to ‘em. I want to win, and I want to win bad. I want to go out there and have a good game and win decisively.”...

“It’ll be exciting to see him,” Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier said. “He’s a great player, one of the best in the league. We’ll have to try to contain him because we know he’ll come hard.”

But Boyle, who had an assist Friday for five points in his past three games, insisted he is not coming to Tampa to even a score. “I know it’s cliche, but it’s about us playing a hockey game. It’s more about that than me versus the owners.”
