It was the moment that Tyler Seguin and Bruins fans were waiting for and at 3:22 of yesterday’s second period everyone got what they wanted — a power-play goal at home.


After an Eric Brewer interference penalty, the Bruins snapped their recent power-play skid with a Seguin snipe. The 21-year-old, from the left circle, sent a one-timer from Dougie Hamilton past Tampa Bay goalie Mathieu Garon. It was the first power-play goal for the Bruins at the Garden this season, snapping a 0-for-27 drought.

Seguin fist-pumped multiple times after scoring his fourth goal of the season to cut Tampa Bay’s lead to 2-1. The B’s went on to defeat the Lightning, 3-2.

“It definitely felt good,” Seguin said. “I don’t think I’ve ever (celebrated) before in my life but did during that one. Definitely got the monkey off the back.”

The goal jump-started the Bruins and their power play. Rich Peverley tied the game 77 seconds after Seguin’s tally. Then Brad Marchand scored the game-winner on another power-play goal with 2:16 left in the contest.
