Tyler Seguin talks Kings, Stars, teammates and more

Comments from Tyler Seguin following the Stars 5-2 win over the Kings in LA on Monday night…

On beating the Kings:

“Tough building, tough team. That was quite the grind, quite the battle. It’s great to see the guys step up and really show some character. We have a lot of guys down like a lot teams in the league right now but it was nice to come out with a win.”

On how he felt when it looked like Brenden Dillon was hurt:

“Like I wanted to cry. Our back end- it’s pretty evident that we’ve lost a couple of guys and key parts to our team- but you look at guys with not too much experience and not too many games in the league and they’ve stepped up and played huge. Obviously we’ve emphasized to our forwards to really get down low and help the defense, and the defense had to move their feet and really get pucks out as quick as possible. I thought tonight was a great game for us as a whole team.”

On being a leading scorer in the league on the road:

“I haven’t really looked into it, but I’m not too sure. I think definitely at the beginning of the year, we were struggling a bit on the road. Benn and I talked about it, between us, that almost every night if we can get the first or second goal- one of us- our team will get going. It kind of sparks the guys and definitely focus on the road. Now we’re going to have a few games in a road here at home, which is great. I think we’ve been on the road one of the most in the league. We have to find some home wins as well.”
