Seidenberg indeed deserved that honor for his efforts in his own zone, blocking shots and playing the body while averaging more than 28 minutes of ice time a night. It’s that type of play throughout the postseason that had made the veteran blueliner a dark-horse candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Bruins inch closer to an NHL championship.

While Zdeno Chara is and always will be the Bruins’ No. 1 defenseman, and is usually the one that makes his partner better, you can make the argument that Seidenberg has been making Chara better. You can definitely say that a healthy, active Seidenberg has made the Bruins as a team better from last season and even from the regular season, especially last week.
