On June 15, 2011 the Boston Bruins broke a thirty nine year draught in bringing home the Stanley Cup. Tyler Seguin was the rookie phenom that came out of nowhere to give us a solid playoff performance. Rich Peverley was one of the staples on the third line that kept the team going. On July 4th of this year they were traded to the Dallas Stars. Tonight, we get to see them come back to the TD Garden.
The Dallas Stars (6-6-2) will be dropping the puck against our own Boston Bruins (8-5-0). It’s going to be a night of memories for all of us.
Tyler Seguin is pretty happy to be back in Boston (all things considered). “There are some tremendous memories here,” Seguin said. “It’s a good feeling when I come here. I know I’m not a part of Boston anymore but it’s always going to be a part of me and I’m still going to visit in the summers all the time. So it’s still nice to be here again.”
Here’s a little snippet of Tyler Seguin discussing his thoughts on the whole trade ‘process’, his time in Boston, how he’s doing in Dallas and how he’s looking forward to playing at the TD Garden as a member of the Stars organization.
Here’s one from Rich Peverley. He talks about his health, and how much he loves the town, the team, and how he will enjoy playing against his friends in the Black and Gold.
Tyler Seguin currently leads the Dallas Stars with fifteen points (six goals). Rich Peverley has seven points (two goals) himself. Let’s not forget about Lane MacDermid who wore the Black and Gold as well. He has two assists in his six games for the Bruins. On a rough note for Boston, Tyler’s fifteen points would have placed him atop the Bruins scoring list, and Peverley would be tied for third.
