Seguin Wins B\'s Scoring Race
BOSTON, MA -- Tyler Seguin scored two goals in the B's 4-3 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres and became the youngest player in team history to lead the club in scoring.

Seguin, 20-years, two-months and 7-days old, scored the B's first and second goals in regulation and with 29-38-67 totals became the sixth 20-year-old to win the team's scoring race, joining current teammate Patrice Bergeron (2005-06), and former B's Paul Ronty (1948-49), Joe Thornton (1999-2000), Don McKenney (1954-55) and Don Gallinger (1945-46).

But Seguin credited his linemates Bergeron and Brad Marchand (who scored the B's third goal) for his success.

"Look at my lineys, they’re easy to play with and I think if you look at...my goals tonight, they set most of them up," said Seguin. "I'm very fortunate to play with them and capitalize."

The B's won't know their opponent for the upcoming playoffs until the Florida Panthers finish their game later this evening, but Seguin said it was good to turn the page on the regular season.

"We have a couple of days here to relax I guess and rest a bit, so I’m very excited to get things started in the postseason," said Seguin, echoing the sentiments of his teammates throughout the Bruins dressing room. "you look at it as an opportunity

"Obviously you know we’ve kind of had a target on our back all year. We’re the team that teams will go up and say, ‘This is our measuring stick this year so far,’ and last year when we played Chicago, they were our measuring stick in the regular season."

But now, all the slates will be clean, but Seguin and the B's can bring their experiences from Spring 2011 into this postseason.

"I think [what I] experienced helped me a lot," said the B's sophomore. "Last year playing a couple of Game 7's, and a Stanley Cup Final Game 7 that’s going to go a long way.

"So, let’s hope the experience with all the little things [will help]; the details of the game, the defensive zone and I’m going to do well."

As far as his own individual accolades, Seguin repeated that his linemates deserve much of the credit.

"Marshy and Bergy with how much chemistry they had all ready from last year, going all the way with the same line to the Stanley Cup Championship, they had a lot of chemistry," said Seguin. "It was nice to step on that line and hopefully we’re going to get better."

And Seguin said that the win in the final regular season game was an important step.

"Yeah, it’s important," said Seguin. "I think the really last, probably four or five games is where you want to stay consistent.

"Obviously, the intensity’s a little hard to get for this kind of game, obviously in the standings it’s not much of a game. But, all the details and it was nice in the third period to see us show character like we might have to do down the road in the playoffs."
