BOSTON — It was no secret Tyler Seguin was the odds-on favorite to be a healthy scratch for the start of the playoffs in the weeks leading up to the postseason.
Today after his team’s morning skate at TD Garden in preparation for Game 1 of an Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against Montreal, head coach Claude Julien put an end to all the educated speculation. He was asked the logic behind sitting Seguin:
“There’s no logic here, I think it’s just we’ve got 20 guys in our line-up tonight that we feel is the line-up we want to go with.”
So there you go.
