BOSTON - They began the night at TD Garden, cheering the anniversary of Bobby Orr’s flying overtime goal.
And the Bruins ended the night airborne again, as in back to Toronto for an improbable sixth game.
As much as coach Claude Julien has come to rely on David Krejci’s line in this series (another goal Friday with Krejci setting up Zdeno Chara), the absence of Tyler Seguin’s trio has now become a matter of great concern in Beantown.
Seguin, who has somehow fallen behind Phil Kessel’s shadow in this series, along with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, are hitting hard times. Seguin has had a few chances close in on James Reimer, but not clicked, and the trio has a combined three points, none of them by Seguin.
“We do (need them) and I’ll leave it at that,” Julien said before expanding on his comment anyway. “It’s something that’s called accountability and we have to have more than that from that line."
