As B’s depart, Seguin arrives

The Bruins might have finally found the scoring they lacked all last season.

The Bruins might have finally found the scoring they lacked all last season.

Rookie Tyler Seguin netted the final goal yesterday as Boston beat the Coytotes 3-0 to salvage a split in the two-game “Premiere” series in the Czech Republic.

The B’s picked the highly touted 18-year-old second overall in June’s draft with eyes on improving their moribund attack.

Looks like it worked. Seguin was a bit rough around the edges in Saturday’s opener — a 5-2 Boston loss — but seemed to mesh well with his teammates yesterday.

Cracking the stat sheet couldn’t have hurt, either.

“I saw the puck in the net and then I raised my arms,” Seguin told the team’s website. “I wasn’t sure it was in at first. I didn’t imagine my first NHL game in Europe, much less my first NHL goal.”

The one-time Major Junior phenom isn’t the only reason for offensive optimism at the Garden.
Winger Nathan Horton, acquired over the offseason as part of the Dennis Wideman trade, scored two goals on Saturday and added a goal and an assist yesterday.
