Spirits were pretty high in Boston Thursday night after the Bruins took Game 1 against the Rangers on a Brad Marchand overtime goal.

But beyond the celebration and revelry, there was a sobering fact: Tyler Seguin once again failed to show up. Worse, he hurt the Bruins on more than one occasion.

"There is zero question he hurt [the Bruins] in that Game 1," said Joe Haggerty. "It's a good thing they came back and got it to overtime or Tyler Seguin would have been the goat in that game for being too soft."

Seguin's coach is quick to point out Seguin's lack of production is not for lack of effort.
