    He was maybe the best Bruin tonight after Bergeron.  Some bad decisions of pass instead of shooting but cannot see that as being a negative thing.

    Just glad he wasn't hurt too bad from that ugly cross-check (that the ref's somehow missed.)

    I can see how the refs missed it.  I watched the first two periods out at the bar and even after numerous replays, I couldn't tell what happened.

    The ref was directly behind the play, so should not have "missed" it. The early holding call on Lucic was was more of a " reputation" call than a real hold, so Looch has to be alert to this officiating perspective.

    Enough, Bogie.  They missed it.  Can't go back and change it.  You know the saying.  No use crying over spilled milk.

    He will always put up good numbers. But this recent stretch is the most I've ever seen him involved physically. And I'm not talking about hitting or finishing checks, it's keeping the puck on his stick when the heat is on him, it's actually trying to win puck battles, it's playing without fear. It may sound crazy, but he really hasn't done those things until recently. Skys the limit if he ever engages all the way.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I think/hope he's turned the corner as far as battling for the puck every shift. His hustle to backcheck has also been very good. A few more games like the last few will tell.

    Good post JW and I was thinking about some of your comments, of how Say-Gun (that's how NBC likes to pro-NOUNCE it) just wouldn't engage physically before. I think slowly he is getting stronger, not a kid anymore, so naturally he is putting his body with his stick in the play now.

    It's paying off and the proof was in the 2nd PP goal where he almost lost the puck to the side of the net but he used his body to shield the shab from the puck. Then the puck eventually went to Hamilton and wella PP goal.

    That line as a whole will never have excuses - none of those three will ever let the others take a shift off. It's great to see them all motor from start to stop.

    Re: Seguin's Coming

    I thought Seguin looked great last night.  I saw him go into the boards winning 50/50 puck battles a few times.  On one, Plekanec should have had an easy clear in his defensive zone, but Seguin caught him, leaned in hard, and then took the hit while sliding the puck back to the point.  Loved it.

    As for the Emelin crosscheck, it was hard to see at first.  It was dirty alright, but it certainly wasn't blatant or obvious, and I'm not surprised he got a away with it.  Emelin knows what any of us who've played hockey know -- there is no padding on the side/lower rib cage at all.  So a well-placed chop from the stick does some damage there even if it looks minor.  Sneaky, dirty, but not blatant.

    Better than the idiots out there spelling his name Sequin (with a Q).....that makes me mad.

    As for the original intent of the post, yes Seguin is coming of age. If CJ continues to give him the requisite icetime he will be that point per game kind of guy and beyond. That's a big if, though....

    That's the biggest improvement I've seen lately.  He's been working out and filling in his body, the puck battles I've seen this improvement from day1 of this season.

    Re: Seguin's Coming

    The Emilin hit from tv camera angle seemed "minor", from the Chara, back Ref angle, cross-check was "blatent".

    Taking my gold cover glasses off, I really don't see how the Ref missed that. Hab comes in, Seguin goes down, stick on the ice. At least a tripping call? Chara, who's normally calm, rushes to pummel Emilin? Come on! Is Chara not that well respected with Official? Seriously?

    Don't get me wrong, Z deserved what he got. The Officials dropped the ball, HUGE

    If the league is "going to watch the next game" to make sure nothing happens, they should watch ALL games

    Re: Seguin's Coming

    I am sure all have seen Seguin the last few games go into the corner taking a hit and recovering to make a offensive pass worthy an exclamation mark!  His skill is undoubtable.  He needs to shoot lower and stop picking the top corners (the goalies have been schooled).  I have noticed his play is beginning to morph into a little of Bergeron and he definitely is taking advantage of Marchand's quick shot.  All pluses, another reason why Chara defended his play with a beat down, btw which masked a similar situation with Hamilton a few games back.  

    On a side note, it usually takes 24 hours (24 hour rule) for yours truly to calm down on the refs, after this Montreal game it took 36.  Time to move on.

     

    BTW Did Chara get one for free NAS?

    Little Known Fact. The HC on the Montreal Jersey is an abbreviation for the citys motto: Heist Central. Over the last decade many many bands have had their gear stolen in Montreal, not just Cracker.

    Tyler said that the ice is different over seas way more space. He now is starting to get adjusted. The only problem with him is sometimes when things go bad , he gets down and frustrated. Then again he is only 21 that will come with more expierence. That game against Montreal he was flying all over the ice. The only time they could stop him is hold him or cross check him in the hip. He is ready to go on a scoring spree , that mini slump is a thing of the past.

    Don't be surprised if he is leading the team in scoring again by the end of the season...
