Tyler Seguin: 'That's Probably One Of The Biggest Goals I've Got'

Tyler Seguin gave the Boston Bruins new life with his goal 3:17 into overtime on Sunday afternoon, giving the B's a 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NHL Playoffs. Seguin's goal, assisted by David Krejci, was the first playoff overtime goal of his career.

"I saw the goalie challenging and I just tried to make a quick move and luckily, it went in," Seguin said. "I think this series we've had a lot of chances and opportunities and I haven't been bearing down or finishing them off. It's just really nice to get that feeling of finally getting one.

"When you're a little kid, that's your dream, get those big goals and keep your team alive. Looking back on my career so far, that's probably one of the biggest goals I've got." (via WEEI)

Seguin and the Bruins host the Caps in Game 7 on Wednesday night at TD Garden.
