Save of the Summer

LOWELL, MA - Tyler Seguin wasn’t quite sure what he was in for heading to the Lowell Spinners’ “Speed Dating” promotion, hosted by the Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.

The night was certainly full of memories for Bruins fans in attendance who won the chance to meet the forward through various gameday contests and an online charity auction.

To a room filled with members of the media, GM Peter Chiarelli professed that the Bruins had no hesitation in signing Coach Julien to the new contract and committing to keeping him behind the bench of a B’s squad that includes the nucleus of the 2011 Cup team.

“I’m extremely happy to remain here in Boston,” he said. “Love the organization, love the city.”

All in the Details for Bergeron – As alternate captain of the Black & Gold, Patrice Bergeron always leads by example. The 26-year-old may not be the most vocal in the B’s locker room – or around the league – but if you look close enough, the heart beneath the stitched ‘A’ will lead you to the finer details.

It’s no secret that Bergeron has always put his team before any personal accomplishments, and that rings true today, when he attends the NHL Awards as a finalist for his first Franke J. Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward.

"It’s always – especially in hockey – it’s a team sport that you need to rely on all of your teammates," Bergeron said during NHL Awards media day, "and they’re the ones that are helping you on the ice and you try to do the same thing to them.
