Seguin, Marchand take in Beverly Hill and Rodeo Drive

EL SEGUNDO, CA The West Coast trips for NHL teams are often eye-opening experiences for hockey players that have never been to that part of the world, and Bruins mischievous due of Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin took in Beverly Hill and Rodeo Drive on their Friday off-day.

Both were members of the Bruins when they traveled out to Los Angeles last season, of course, and Seguin was actually drafted No. 2 overall at the Staples Center in Los Angeles two years ago.

But theyd never been to the most famous zip code in the United States before this current trip.

Seguin said he did a little bit of clothes shopping in area known for its clothing stores and world famous areas of commerce, and he couldnt help but feel like he was dropped into one of his favorite TV shows.

We did a little bit of shopping and a lot just watching the people around us. Its a whole different world over there, said Seguin, who sounded like he had the full Axel Foley experience in his first time taking in Beverly Hills. The people are all dressed up like theyre straight out of TV show or a movie and there were beautiful women everywhere you looked.

I honestly felt like I was in a scene right out of Entourage. It was a good way to get our minds off hockey for the afternoon, but I was back checking all of the games scores last night when we got back to the hotel.

Seguin, Marchand and the rest of the Bruins were immediately back into business mode for an optional skate at the Toyota Sports Center practice facility home of the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday morning. Theyre off the shopping sprees and starlet-watching, and now fully prepared to wrap up their trip to the West Coast with a strong weekend finish against the Kings and the Ducks.
