BOSTON (CBS) – Dave Goucher and Bob Beers from the Boston Bruins Radio Network joined Adam Jones postgame following the shootout loss to the Dallas Stars and their former first round pick Tyler Seguin, who was jettisoned out of town on July 4 in a trade.
Felger & Mazz: Did The Bruins Bail Too Early On Tyler Seguin?
The loss marks the fourth time in five games the Bruins have been defeated, and has signaled an early season slump for the struggling B’s. What makes the loss all the more difficult is the way it happened. The Bruins held a lead late in the third period, but a costly penalty by defenseman Dennis Seidenberg led to a penalty shot and goal by the Stars’ Vernon Fiddler.
After a scoreless overtime period the game went to the shootout, where the Bruins lost 3-2. Adding insult to injury, Seguin and Dennis Peverley – both part of the trade that brought forward Loui Eriksson to town – scored during the shootout.
“It’s ironic how it worked out,” said Dave Goucher. “Tyler Seguin during the game I didn’t think was a huge factor. Rich Peverley is in that same boat. Then you get into a shootout – two players with a pretty high skill level – Seguin was able to beat [Tuukka] Rask and then Rich Peverley comes in and he’s able to win the game.”
Goucher added that wins have been tough to come by for the Bruins of late, and that they got to find ways to win these close contests.
Bob Beers then got into depth about past five games, and how not doing the little things have cost them.
