According to Joe Haggerty, Tyler Seguin will be playing tonight after missing the previous two games. While Seguin does have a lot of learning to do to improve at the NHL level, sitting him in favor of a player like Daniel Paille is a very questionable decision. According to CSN, Cam Neely is not happy about last nights results, both regarding Seguin and the outcome of the game.
Interesting interview with Bruins President Cam Neely on WAAF with Greg Hill and former Bruins enforcer Lyndon Byers this morning. Neely sounded miffed with the entire game against the Sabres at HSBC Arena – and rightfully so – actually wouldn’t address the healthy scratch of Tyler Seguin.
Neely said flatly of scratching Seguin: “Coach’s decision. You’ll have to ask the coach.”Several times Neely harkened back to a B’s playing style that hasn’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboard lately, and the importance their defensive system places on scoring during the power play: “Goals against isn’t an issue. Goals for is an issue. The power play is an issue. I think the name of the game is that you still have to score one more goal than the other team. It’s not about trying to win 0-0.”It sounds like the heat might be turning up on the Bruins coaching staff if trends don’t start turning around for the Black and Gold.
