It used to be that every time the now-retired Detroit Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom wound up from center ice, looking like he was about to dump the puck in, that opposition goaltenders had to be on watch. More than once he had beaten goaltenders from that spot. It looks like Boston’s Dennis Seidenberg has been watching some game tape.
On Friday night, with the Boston visiting Columbus for a contest with the Blue Jackets, the Bruins defenseman tried fired a slapshot from the red line that is going to give Columbus netminder Sergei Bobrovsky nightmares:
Columbus has been facing injury troubles and, up 2-0 at the time of the Seidenberg goal, were on their way to getting back in the win column after a 5-0 shellacking at the hands of Detroit on Tuesday. However, the goal by Seidenberg turned the tide.
Seidenberg’s tally would be the first of three by the Bruins in ten minutes. Columbus would net the tying marker shortly after the Bruins took the lead, but fell in the shootout
