Maybe you’ve heard, but Tyler Seguin continued his Teen Wolf coming out party in a big way on Tuesday. The party started at the 48 second mark of the second period when Seguin made Randy Jones and Victor Hedman look like a pair of cones. Seguin would bury another and assist on two more, he has 6-points in two post-season games.
This is why we don’t do silly things like debate trades that A) aren’t complete yet and B) involved a draft pick turned teenage rookie that’s still developing. So the next time Phil Kessel scores 5-goals in one week in January, and a half-wit like Damien Cox is baiting intelligent people on the internet by saying things like ‘the Leafs won the Kessel trade’: just ignore him or tell him to get his shit together and wait this out. Tyler Seguin gone beastmode.
Seguin’s teammates on his big night
Several Bruins players express their wonderment over Seguin’s 4-point night, here’s Tim Thomas via The Boston Globe:
“I see Tyler in practice. He has some speed and some good moves. He gets those opportunities and he knows how to score. I wasn’t surprised that he buried the puck when he got those opportunities. Those were big goals for us. I don’t really know what to say except I am happy for him and the whole team that he was able to do it.”
They drew first blood, not Tim Thomas
