NESN 30: Tyler Seguin Has Breakout Game Against Lightning (Video)

Back in 2010, Tyler Seguin was a fresh-faced kid looking to make a splash in the NHL after being drafted second overall by the Boston Bruins. The 2010-11 season saw Seguin grow as a player, but his breakout game came during the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs.

After being a healthy scratch for the first two rounds of the playoffs, Seguin was inserted into the lineup in place of an injured Patrice Bergeron in the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning. After a goal and an assist in his first game, Seguin scored two goals and had two assists in the second game, becoming the first teenager to score four points in an NHL playoff game since Trevor Linden in 1989.

The Bruins went on to win the Stanley Cup in 2011.

Check out a recap of Seguin’s breakout game in the video above.
