It was a breakout week for Seguin, who built on the momentum of his shootout-winning goal in Columbus with a regulation goal in Nashville. And then in Toronto, he was denied on his breakaway by goaltender James Reimer, but was extremely active around the net and even threw two hits.
It’s been a roller-coaster first NHL season for Seguin, who started off with a hot hand and since has been juggled from line to line, inserted and removed from the line-up, and shifted from wing to center and back again. If ever there was a time for him to find his game and begin to compete consistently at the NHL level, it’s now with the Bruins in a March swoon and the playoffs just a couple weeks away.
If Seguin sees an increase in ice time as reward for his recent performances, he has to be sure to take advantage of those minutes. Duplicating his Toronto performance — which was the only positive one by a Bruins player in that loss — and other showings of last week would be a solid start.
