“I thought it was uncalled for —the puck wasn’t even close,’’ a very even keeled Bergeron said late Tuesday morning.
“Things like that,’’ he added, “I think are uncalled for.’’
On the board
Seguin finally put a puck over the goal line Monday, connecting for his first goal of the season after potting 29 over the 82-game schedule last season. Of the top 35 goal scorers in 2011-12, only Jarome Iginla (Calgary) remains without a goal this season.
“Well, I think he is out of synch,’’ said Julien, noting that Seguin played weeks of hockey in Switzerland, where the ice sheet is considerably bigger than in the 30 NHL rinks.
“I think where the puck battles are along the boards, [that’s] somewhere where he’s always going to have to work a little harder because he’s always played center, and center you’re always the support guy — he didn’t have to battle too much along the boards.’’
Seguin in his two-plus seasons with the Bruins has been somewhat inconsistent, in his willingness to fight for pucks and battle through checks. His abundant speed and stick skills often allow him to steer clear of tough sledding.
Neither club has suffered a loss in 60 minutes of regulation. The Devils fell to the Canadiens, 4-3, in overtime Sunday, and lost Tuesday in a shootout. The Bruins were rubbed out, 4-3, in overtime by the Rangers last Wednesday at MSG . . . Christopher Bourque, son of Bruins icon Ray Bourque, has yet to pick up a point in his six games with the Spoked-B. “I wouldn’t necessarily overanalyze it that way,’’ said Julien, asked if he felt Bourque was frustrated or pressing. “I think he’s playing better and better. The numbers aren’t there. But I think he’s gaining confidence’’ . . . The Bruins have six more back-to-back dates. The next one has Tampa at the Garden on Feb. 9, followed by the Bruins’ visit to Buffalo . . . The Bruins have collected at least one point in their first six games — something they had not done since starting 5-0-1 in 1970-71, the October following their Stanley Cup season.
