BOSTON — Tyler Seguin is red hot and the Bruins’ offense is on fire.
Boston downed Buffalo tonight for its fifth straight win, with Seguin scoring twice.
The second-year forward now has at least a goal in four straight games, while he has points in six straight. The Bruins have scored 30 goals in their last five games after they scored just 21 in their first 10.
“The way we’ve just been playing lately, it’s been, offensively, all around pretty much, it’s been pretty impressive,” said goaltender Tim Thomas, who earned the win with 21 saves. “It’s been pretty fun to play behind, and there’s some pretty good stuff out there. You’ve got Seguin coming of age, and other guys, we’re really clicking right now and getting some things done. It’s pretty fun to watch.”
Here’s my game story from NHL.com.
Other than the eight goals, there were other fireworks during this battle of Northeast Division rivals. During the first period, Milan Lucic and Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller collided. As I wrote for NHL.com, Miller was none too pleased with Lucic after the game. Miller left after two periods due to an “upper-body injury.”
