BOSTON - Tyler Seguin knew that something had to be said, and he was pretty sure it wouldn't be fit for public consumption.
The Chicago Blackhawks badly outplayed Boston in the first period of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals Saturday night, outshooting the Bruins by 19-4. Afterward, the Boston forward ditched the microphone he had been wearing as part of the telecast.
Then he headed back into the dressing room so the team could hash out its problems in peace.
"It was really a mix of everybody saying something," Seguin said.
"I definitely knew it was coming, so I threw my shoulder pads in the training room and put a towel over it so no one could hear what we were saying. I think we needed that team wake-up call."
