It's been a rough postseason for Tyler Seguin, and the same could be said for most of Game 7 against the Leafs.

Seguin found himself demoted to the third line with Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly, and that certainly wasn't something that he brushed off.

The B's young winger missed on more than a few opportunities this series, and may not have been feeling so great about himself going into overtime.

We found out after the game that fellow Bruins winger Shawn Thornton took Seguin aside and offered some words to him prior to the team's overtime. Something he said must have worked, because Seguin looked sharper in OT, and even contributed with his first point of the series on an assist to Patrice Bergeron's game-winning goal.
