That piece of trash that almost took away Tyler Seguin‘s shootout goal on Tuesday night? It turns out it was a hot dog. While many of those watching the end of the Bruins’ solid shootout win over the Devils knew that something got tossed onto the ice when Seguin made his run at the goal, it took the trained professionals to slow down the video enough to glimpse just exactly what the flying object was. Thanks to slow motion, the outline of a hot dog can clearly be seen. Bruins fans can enjoy the humor of the situation now, as Boston ended up winning, but it almost wasn’t funny for a minute. The officials disallowed the first goal due to the fan interference, although the hot dog landed behind the Devils’ goalkeeper, and Seguin had to take another attempt. He made that one, too, meaning he was 2-for-2 on shootout goals for the night, hot dogs or not. Check out the slow motion catch of the flying hot dog in the video above.

Seguin forced to score second time in shootout

Tyler Seguin didn’t just score in the shootout for the Bruins on Tuesday night — he scored twice. After Seguin slotted home his first attempt to start things off for the B’s against the Devils and goalie Johan Hedberg, the referees  made Seguin do it over again. The reason? Someone had thrown something onto the ice while he was in the middle of his shot. Not one to get flustered...

Video: Fan throws debris on ice during Boston/New Jersey shootout

Tyler Seguin scored two shootout goals in Boston's 2-1 victory over New Jersey. Unfortunately for Seguin, only one actually counted as the first was waved off after a fan tossed a piece of debris on the ice as he was shooting. While the trash didn't appear to interfere with the play, Seguin had to take his shot over again. He buried it - again - much to the delight of the...

Tyler Seguin’s Birthday Celebration on Twitter Features Olympic Wishes, Emoticons Aplenty (Video)

Tyler Seguin turned 21 on Thursday, and he celebrated by playing against the Buffalo Sabres. He also celebrated with 200,000 or so of his closest friends on Twitter, with hundreds and hundreds of fans sending along well-wishes and the occasional marriage proposal. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette dove into the Bruins forward’s mentions to find some of the best. Check it out in the...

Tyler Seguin Forced To Shoot Twice In Shootout After Fan Throws Debris On Ice

Some idiot at TD Garden almost cost the Bruins a victory Tuesday night when they threw something (possibly a fan towel from the looks of it) onto the ice during Tyler Seguin’s opening shootout attempt against the Devils. Seguin, who scored on the attempt, was forced to re-do the shot after the refs convened and decided the debris was enough of a distraction to warrant wiping out...

Tyler Seguin Scores Twice In Shootout Due To Fan Throwing A Hot Dog

A.B. Clearly this Bruins or Devils “fan” needs to be banned from the TD Garden for the season, if not for life. But I’m not mad at the drunken bastard. Anytime I get to see Tyler Seguin get an extra shootout attempt is cool with me. If the Seguin didn’t score the second time around, maybe I’d feel differently but he did. So relax Bruins fans, Tyler just got a little more...

Thomas Vanek Plays ‘Party Pooper’ Against Bruins With Five-Point Game Spoiling Tyler Seguin’s Birthday (Video)

Tyler Seguin‘s big night didn’t have quite the party it could have, as the Bruins fell to the Sabres 7-4 on the Bruins forward’s 21st birthday. Thomas Vanek was a big reason why, as the Bruins killer struck again. This time, he notched three goals during a five-point night that saw momentum swing after momentum swing finally wear down the B’s. Boston’s first loss at home...

PURRGERON REPORT: The Great Sausage Caper

  It's been a while since Ace Reporter and DOY GM has made a public appearance. He took an extended vacation during the NHL Lockout and barely gave us the keys to DOY HQ for work. But he's back in town and just in time. Last night some asshat threw debris on the ice during Tyler Seguin's shootout attempt. The reffs ruled that Seguin had to do it again. Luckily...

Sausage Fest

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...

Sabres-Bruins Preview

The Bruins go for their longest season-opening home winning streak in over 22 years Thursday night when they try to continue their success against the Sabres.
