BOSTON — There have been some nights this season that Tyler Seguin has been basically pinned to the Bruins’ bench for the third period of tight games, but few like the one the other night in Carolina.
There’s one race Tyler Seguin always beats Jeff Skinner in.
Yesterday, the Bruins rookie did it again, as he turned the next age number three months before the Carolina first-year standout.
Every season of the Peter Chiarelli/Claude Julien era has featured an impressive rookie class on the Bruins’ roster.
Down the road, this year’s group of Boston first-year NHLers might turn out to be the best group of rookies during that duo’s stint with the Bruins’ brain trust.
BOSTON — In a physically grueling battle with Pittsburgh today at TD Garden, Bruins head coach Claude Julien decided to cut back the third-period minutes for his daintiest forward line.
Health willing, goaltender Tim Thomas will get a chance to continue his All-Star Game winning streak in Raleigh later this month.
I wouldn’t buy the theory that Tyler Seguin’s healthy scratch Wednesday night in Buffalo lit some sort of fire under him before his excellent performance in the loss at Montreal tonight if you threw in a free Snuggie.
Had the Buffalo Sabres sat back at 2-2 in the third period and crossed their fingers for a shootout tonight, you couldn’t have blamed them.
Of course, Buffalo took advantage of a power play and then hung on for the 3-2 home over the Bruins, but without Boston’s shootout specialist Tyler Seguin in the lineup the Sabres, already 3-0 in shootouts this year, would’ve been heavily favored in the post-overtime spectacle.
Some were wondering Saturday night if Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin’s flu-like symptoms that kept him out of the game against the Flyers were related to the “Philadelphia flu” or his inconsistent play more than any germs he might’ve caught.
With Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers in town for tonight’s game against the Bruins at TD Garden (7:30 p.m. puck drop), there’s no better time to take a quick look at the Calder Trophy race.
Myers, of course, won last year’s award as the top rookie in the NHL.
BOSTON — Even before the Bruins drafted Tyler Seguin second overall last June, general manager Peter Chiarelli and people around the Bruins drew the comparison between Seguin and Tampa Bay sniper Steven Stamkos.
There were reports from a couple media outlets last night that the Bruins are considering allowing Tyler Seguin to play for Team Canada at the end of this month at the World Junior Championship.
BOSTON — The whole Thanksgiving and Black Friday thing probably doesn’t mean too much to Canadian-born Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin and his Carolina counterpart Jeff Skinner.
No, today’s matinee at TD Garden is more just about renewing a relationship that dates back to before the 2010 first-round draft picks were even in their teens.
BOSTON — While he made his NHL exhibition debut at the Bell Centre in Montreal in September, Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin had never tasted the regular-season version of a Bruins-Canadiens tilt until tonight.
Many of you have already seen the commercials during Bruins telecasts on NESN.
Well, today Dunkin’ Donuts officially named Boston rookie phenom Tyler Seguin as a company spokesperson.
WILMINGTON, Mass. — It showed a decent amount of maturity that after skating just two shifts in the third period Saturday, rookie Tyler Seguin popped off the bench to score the Bruins’ lone goal in the shootout.
