Seguin, Peverley "Forever Linked" to Boston - Since the July 4 seven-player blockbuster trade with Dallas, the inevitable would happen, with Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley making their returns to Boston, as they are Tuesday night at TD Garden.

While the trade can be dissected any which way, the fact remains: Seguin and Peverley are now Dallas Stars, and the Bruins have integrated former Stars Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith easily into their lineup.

But for Seguin and Peverley, there will always be an attachment to Boston.

"Obviously my first year, being lucky enough to win the Stanley Cup there…there’s some tremendous memories here."

- Tyler Seguin
