TYLER SEGUIN TALKS ABOUT GAME 2 WIN

BOSTON BRUINS TYLER SEGUIN

On what he thinks the key was to getting his line going…
I think right when us three [Seguin, Chris Kelly, and Daniel Paille] got together, especially after the first period when we didn’t play well, we started competing a lot harder, started moving our feet a lot more. Obviously Kells [Chris Kelly] scored a big goal and kind of just went from there.

On if he expects this whole series to be this tight…
I would be surprised if it wasn’t. Obviously we’ve two playoff MVP goalies, two Selke winners, two great teams with not too may holes. So I think every chance is an inch that you’re going to have to earn.

On how he felt about his own game last night…
Yeah, I mean, it seemed like night after night it’s kind of the same guy stepping up, and you just want to contribute as much as you can. In the end, it would be nice to be getting some results. Last night it was great to see that and see us contribute.

On what Daniel Paille brought to his line…
I think he’s stepped up many times, especially with big goals. I think he’s got tremendous speed and probably one of the fastest players in the league. I think when he’s using that and getting first on the forecheck he’s going to make good things happen.

On there being quick chemistry between himself and Paille…
Yeah, very easy to play with. I think we’ve both got some good speed and we use each other. Obviously, I think Kells [Chris Kelly] is a very responsible centerman; definitely does the extra work. I think us three as a line worked out well.

On taking off the microphone he had on and what was said in between the first and second periods and who said what…
It was really a mix of everybody saying something. Obviously I think Kells [Chris Kelly] was one of the most vocal guys at the time. But in the end, I think it was a mix of everyone. I definitely knew it was coming, so I definitely threw my shoulder pads in the training room and put a towel over it so no one could hear what we were saying. I think we needed that team wake-up call.

On contrasting how confident the team feels moving forward with how bad they felt after the first the period…
Well, I think our confidence – we’re very confident with each other. We play for one another and trust each other, that’s why we can come back from terrible period like we did. Obviously we want to do it for Tuukks [Tuukka Rask] especially, he kept us in the game the whole time. I think it’s definitely extra confidence moving forward.

On Coach Claude Julien being able to adjust to certain situations…
Yeah, I think he makes great adjustments. You’ve got to give him credit, he’s a great coach. He’s definitely got a lot of experience at this level and in these situations. It’s the players, but it’s also the coaches that make the decisions.
