WILMINGTON, Mass. --
Prior to the Bruins departure for Canada, Tyler Seguin
was asked about the B's upcoming home and home set with the Maple Leafs.
"We expect a quick team," said Seguin of Toronto. "They have a really fast offense and in the neutral zone we really have to get pucks up [ice] quick against these guys, and get them deep and try and take it to them."
The Leafs may just be a touch above .500 over their last 10 games (5-4-1), but Seguin also expects that the scores fromBoston's two victories over Toronto might just make the spoked-B's on the Bruins chests into a pretty big target.
"We know with the scores from the last couple of games against them, they're going to be wanting some revenge on us in their own barn," said Seguin, whose Bruins are 9-0-1 in their last 10.
"We're expecting a good game."
Seguin explained that each of the Bruins will have to ensure they bring their own "A" game with them through customs and into the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday.
"Just stay focused," said Seguin. "I don't think anyone here wants to become complacent.
"I think we all have to stick our nose into it and stay as consistent as we can.
"I know that's what all the guys in here want," he added. "For me, that's definitely what I am trying to find, is consistency."
Given the implications for the standings (Boston stands just one point behind the Toronto's Northeast Division leaders), Seguin was asked how important a game in November can really be in the NHL.
"I don't think we're going to over analyze it," said Seguin. "It's definitely a big game.
"I know they're ahead of us, so having a home and home series with a team that's close to you in the standing is always going to be a big [week] and we've got to be ready."
