Bruins Daily Player of the Week: March 3-March 10, 2013

Bruins Daily Player of the Week: March 3-March 10, 2013

It is no surprise that Tyler Seguin is streaking right now. He is now tied for third on the team in points with 19 on the year (8 G 11 A). The conversation of “When will Seguin get going?” seems like a thing of the past as he has recorded points in nine of his last 11 games. During this week stretch of games, Seguin scored two goals versus the Maple Leafs while he netted a beautiful power-play goal versus the Flyers on Saturday on a no-look feed from Milan Lucic. He had three goals and an assist for the week.
Seguin is back from his Swiss vacation and is really starting to heat up. He has at least one goal in four out of his last five games. He is starting to think without the puck and once the puck comes his way, he is firing it on net. Something he was not doing earlier in the year.
Seguin is playing great hockey in all three zones for the Black and Gold and Head coach Claude Julien can see the difference in his game over the last few weeks.
“Playing better, battling better along the boards and being on the puck quicker,” Julien said. “There’s no hesitation in his game. When he skates the way he can skate and takes the hesitation out, a lot of good things happen to him.”
Seguin feels more relief now that the pucks are now finding the back of the net for him instead of going high glass or off a post.
“Yeah, you could say that,” Seguin said. “I think every guy in here likes to score and I’m no exception so definitely feels good.”

Seguin is now a +16 on the season which ranks him eighth in the league. He still trails line mate Patrice Bergeron who has a +17 on the season for the team lead. Over the last nine games, the Bergeron-Marchand-Seguin line have combined for 37 points (14 goals and 23 assists) leading the Bruins to a 7-1-1 record during that stretch. Seguin is finally starting to carry his own weight which will only make this line more lethal.
Seguin is now second in goals on the team with eight. He only trails his partner in crime Brad Marchand who has 12 on the year. There is no doubt that Bruins fans know Seguin will either lead the Bruins in goals or finish on the team near the top. He is too talented not to. The busy stretch is upon the Black and Gold and the B’s will need Seguin to continue his pace of lighting the lamp as they look for their 17th win of the year tonight in Ottawa.
