Seguin Reflects on Loss to Pittsburgh
BOSTON, MA – After the Boston Bruins 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday, forward Tyler Seguin didn’t hang his head on the two breakaway away opportunities he was unable to convert against Pens goaltender Brent Johnson.

Instead, what hurt the most, besides the loss, were the minus-one and minus-two he and his linemates finished with at the end of the night.

“In big games like tonight, you don’t want to walk away with minuses on the stat sheet,” Seguin said. “That’s one [goal] for myself and our line – we want to be good in our D-zone.

"A little bit of a bad bounce on their goal, but we walked away with a dash-one. So not exactly happy.”

Seguin also addressed his missed breakaway opportunities.

“Hopefully I’m saving them for the playoffs,” Seguin said. “I had a couple plays tonight where I thought apparently I’ve got to grip my stick a bit harder.

"I tried to go a couple different places. They seemed to make some good saves.”

However, the night wasn’t a total wash for Seguin. Prior to the puck drop, NESN play-by-play commentator Jack Edwards bestowed the 20-year-old-forward with NESN’s Seventh Player Award.

The award, which was voted on by fans on NESN.com, is presented to the Bruin who went above and beyond the call of duty and exceeded the expectations of Bruins fans during the 2011-12 season.

After a strong rookie campaign, the sophomore Seguin leads the team with 65 points and is tied for the team goal lead (27) with Brad Marchand, who won the award last season.

“I know Marshy got it last year, so I don’t know if it’s that good of an award,” Seguin said playfully.

On a more serious note, Seguin expressed his gratitude for the recognition.

“It felt good,” he said. “I’m very humbled and honored to be accepting that award, and obviously there’s a lot of guys that could have got it. One that especially comes to mind is Chris Kelly.

"I thought he definitely deserved that award as well, but I’m very honored in accepting it.”
