Tyler Seguin netted 29 goals in 81 games last season, but Bruins fans are hoping the young sniper can get close to — if not past — that number again this season, despite just 48 games expected to be on the B’s busy schedule.
Seguin posted four multiple-goal games a season ago, including a two-goal game in the regular-season finale and a hat trick against the Maple Leafs in early November. The winger will have to get on some hot streaks if he’d like to eclipse the 20-goal plateau in the shortened season, but after scoring 25 goals in just 29 games in the Swiss League, Seguin looks like he’s ready to start making some noise in the NHL’s scoring race.
Putting more pressure on Seguin this year is Andrew Ference, who recently made a deal that he’d plant 50 trees for every goal Seguin scores this season, basically putting the future of Mother Earth on TS19′s shoulders.
