Tyler Seguin Flourishing In The Playoffs

Boston Bruins' rookie sensation Tyler Seguin did not play through the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs. He is definitely making the Bruins front office regret that decision with how he has responded to being thrust into the playoffs halfway through the tournament. Seguin has six points with three goals and three assists through his first two career playoff games. His first career goal (see below) quieted any critics that may have second guessed the decision to insert him into the lineup so late in the playoffs, and so early in his career.

A rookie that was credited with 11 goals and 11 assists in 74 games through out the regular season has made an immediant impact in the series. He scored the Bruins first goal of game one, and scored another highlight reel goal (below) just :48 seconds into the second period of game two which knotted the score at two a piece. He extended a Bruins lead to two goals later in the period off a feed from Nathan Horton ending the play going top shelf over Dwayne Roloson's shoulder. Seguin finished game two with two goals and two assists. Tyler Seguin has released some kind of rookie magic, like that of Logan Couture out west, scoring momentum swinging goals and dropping his name all over the score sheet. The Lightning have to regroup and find answer to Seguin quickly if they want to win this series.
