This one has to sting a little bit for Boston Bruins fans.

The Bruins fell to the Dallas Stars in overtime on Monday afternoon by a 3-2 margin after scoring a pair of goals to erase what had been a two-goal deficit. It helped the Bruins pick up a point in the standings for the 13th consecutive game and 16th time in the past 17.

They were unable to get a win, however, because Tyler Seguin did this in overtime.

Oh man. He literally skated around all three Bruins defenders, left them all in the dust, and then scored his 22nd goal of the season to win the game.

This one has to be a little painful for Bruins fans because, if you remember, the Bruins traded Seguin to the Dallas Stars just a few years ago for a package of players that included Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, and Joe Morrow. Today, the Bruins have none of those players remaining in the organization and nothing to show for any of them. All for a player signed to a bargain contract that is just now entering the prime of his career.

It is not all bad for the Bruins because they still have one of the best teams in the NHL right now, but just try to imagine what they would look like with Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin down the middle.

Scary.
