8 a.m.: Tuesday night will mark the return of Tyler Seguin to Boston, but if the Bruins are paying any attention to that, they’re in more trouble than we might think. Seguin will be back in Boston on Tuesday night for the first time since being traded to Dallas over the summer, but the B’s cannot worry about that. They are coming off their worst showing of the season in a 3-1 loss Saturday to an Islanders team that was on the second half of a back-to-back with travel. Claude Julien blasted his team for a lack of effort, which has become the key issue for a team that has lost three of its last four games. The Bruins may have some good news, though, as they could be getting Loui Eriksson back. The second-line winger has been out since Oct. 23 after he suffered a concussion on a high hit from Buffalo’s John Scott. It’s a good sign that Eriksson practiced Monday morning and wasn’t limited. The Bruins sent Ryan Spooner back to Providence on Monday, which could also be an indication that Eriksson is about ready to return. Speaking of returns, there will be plenty of eyes on Seguin, who is back in Boston for the first time since the Stanley Cup Final. His time with the Bruins came to an unceremonious end on July 4, and he’ll probably have a little extra motivation with how things ended with the club that drafted him No. 2 overall just a few years ago. While there are still parts of his two-way game that continue to develop, there’s no questioning his offensive production since becoming a Star. He’ll enter Tuesday’s game with 15 points in 14 games this season. The intraconference matchup also marks the return of Rich Peverley. Puck drop from TD Garden is scheduled for 7 p.m.Filed under: Boston Bruins, Headlines, Live Blog, Mike Cole
