Or should we say the final score was Tyler Seguin minus-1, Taylor Hall minus-2?
No, seriously, the two super rookies barely factored in the decision tonight in Edmonton.
The Bruins got a goal and assist from Michael Ryder, who also set up Rich Peverley’s game-winning goal, in taking down the 30th-ranked Oilers.
Peverley’s goal, his first in a Bruins uniform, came on the back end of a give-and-g0 at 19:08 of the second period and gave Boston a 3-1 lead.
Here’s a look at the rest of the box score:
•Goaltender Tuukka Rask had some awkward moments, but he finished with 15 saves to earn the win.
•Hall, the No. 1 overall draft pick last June, not only was minus-2 but was point-less and shot-less. He also picked up a roughing minor. Seguin was point-less with a couple giveaways but fired two shots on goal.
•Nathan Horton won the first of the game’s three fights with a right that knocked Edmonton’s Theo Peckham from the game. Brad Marchand and Andrew Cogliano later scrapped to a draw and Jim Vandermeer slightly edged Milan Lucic on points.
•After the game the Bruins officially announced a minor-league deal that brings David Laliberte and Stefan Chaput, a pair of forwards, to the Providence (AHL) farm club for forward Brian McGrattan and defenseman Sean Zimmerman, who had both been playing with the P-Bruins. I don’t expect either player to get his name etched in the Stanley Cup this summer.
