Seth Griffith

(53) celebrates his first NHL goal during the third period of Boston

Last night the Boston Bruins (4-4-0) found themselves down 3-2 to the San Jose Sharks going into the final period. The Bruins dug down and found a way to win by scoring three unanswered goals in the final twenty minutes. That charge was led by twenty-one year old Seth Griffith who earned his first NHL point and goal last night.  Griffith picked up the trash and fired it in past Antti Niemi 4:50 into the third period, getting the game tied at three goals each. He earned that point playing on the top line for Boston last night, skating along side Milan Lucic and David Krejci. That line performed last night, earning two goals and five assists on the night.

Griffith is the latest of a series of players who have gotten their start in the Bruins’ AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins. Last season in Providence, he put up fifty points (twenty goals) for the Baby B’s. When asked about his first NHL goal, Griffith was honest and humble with his answer.”It was great,” said Griffith post game. “I had a couple chances the last couple games. So it’s nice to get this one out of the way.”

  • Overall, Griffith had a good enough performance in his fourth career NHL game to earn Third Star of the Game honors. He was a +1, with three shots on goal and two hits. He also had a takeaway in his 12:59 of ice time.

    “He’s[Griffith] been on the verge. He’s had a few good looks. He’s not afraid to shoot and he has a lot of confidence for a young kid, so we’re all happy to see him score a goal, and not only a goal but an important goal.” – Gregory Campbell on Griffith’s first NHL goal

    With last night’s performance, it looks like Seth Griffith will be filling in the Krejci line for now.  The Bruins will be staying in town when they take on Johnny Boychuk and the New York Islanders tomorrow night.
