BOSTON — The offensive eruption we all knew was coming from Tyler Seguin took down Tampa Bay tonight.
The rookie forward, skating in just his second NHL playoff game, finished the night with two goals and two assists as the Bruins won a game at the TD Garden despite some of the loosest defense they’ve ever played under head coach Claude Julien.
With the 6-5 victory in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final, the Bruins evened the series at one game apiece heading to Tampa.
Here’s a glance at the box score:
•In addition to Seguin’s four-point night, the Bruins also got multi-point games from Michael Ryder (2-1-3), Tomas Kaberle (0-2-2), Nathan Horton (1-2-3) and Dennis Seidenberg (0-2-2).
•Seguin was plus-3. Not to ruin the moment, but Johnny Boychuk was a minus-3.
•Seidenberg finished the night with a plus-2 rating in 31:25 of ice time.
•Vinny Lecavalier led the Lightning with a 1-3-4 night.
•Nathan Horton finished with seven hits but also took two minor penalties.
