BOSTON (CBS) – Rookie Tyler Seguin is a healthy scratch for game one of the Bruins-Canadiens playoff series, Coach Claude Julien confirmed Thursday.
“No logic,” Julien said of the move. “We’ve got 20 guys in our lineup tonight that we feel is the lineup we want to go with.”
Seguin, taken second overall by the Bruins in last years NHL draft, scored 11 goals and finished with 22 points during his rookie campaign.
“He’s just a young kid in a playoff environment and it happens sometimes,” Chiarelli said. “It’s nothing negative if it does happen. I’ve felt in the last little bit his game has come quite significantly.”
