Tuesday night’s shootout victory over the Devils could have
ended in horrific fashion for the Bruins. If Seguin wasn't filthy when no one else is on the ice and had missed his “second”
breakaway attempt the B’s would have only received one point and lost the game.
In a bizarre turn of events a spectator felt the need to
hurl a sausage sub at Johan Hedberg while Tyler Seguin was breaking towards the
net for his shootout attempt. As the meaty link sailed across the top of the
crease behind Hedberg, Seguin had already beat him with a move to the forehand and

stripped of his goal and required to shoot again due to a violation of Rule
If, while the penalty shot is being taken, a
spectator throws any object onto the ice or, in the judgment of the Referee,
interferes with the player taking the shot or the goalkeeper defending the
shot, he shall permit the shot be taken again.
