BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin joined D.A., Dave Goucher and Bob Beers Wednesday night on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s The Hockey Show, and although the team has yet to raise their Stanley Cup Banner, is ready to turn the page on last season.
“The Stanley Cup ‘hangover’ what they call is what gets talked about obviously a lot. I think for us to be successful this year, were going to have to want it even more,” said Seguin. “For us to be good again this year, we’re going to have to almost forget last year and do it all over again.”
“The first couple days of everyone getting back in and having the last few cup parties, we’ve really started to slowly turn the page. Receiving the rings and raising the banner will really be one of the last things. I think everyone is excited to turn the page and see what we can do this year.”
The Bear Essentials: Where Does Seguin Play?
Seguin is ready for his sophomore season after posting 11 goals and 11 assists in the regular season, and three more goals in the playoffs. He bulked up a bit during his brief time off, and is determined to make a big leap in his second NHL season.
“I was a little bit unsure how to take my simmer and prepare because it was my first offseason,” he said. “For me personally I wanted to have a good sophomore season, so I didn’t really take too much time off besides a couple weeks in Boston. I went right at it.”
Kalman: Seguin Seeks New Edge
Seguin said it will be important for the defending champions to set the tone early, especially with seven of their 10 October games at the TD Garden.
“The beginning of the seasons very important. It’s time to really show our identity and figure out what we want other teams to know about us,” he said.
