Swiss teammates Seguin and Kane to meet in finals

It’s funny how things work out. During the NHL lockout, Tyler Seguin and Patrick Kane were teammates in Switzerland playing for HC Biel. Now that we’ve moved past the labor strife and into the Stanley Cup finals, the short-term teammates get to face off to see who wins it all.

As Joe Haggerty of shares, Seguin knows Kane is coming into the finals red hot and a player to be feared.

“I think he’s definitely an incredible player, and very shifty. When he has that spark of confidence, he’s definitely a dangerous player,” said Seguin. “You could see it [Game 5] after he got that goal the game before, and it seemed like he was a different player than he was earlier in the series.”

Kane caught fire in the final two games against L.A. scoring four goals, including his Game 5 hat trick. He’s got 14 points in 17 games as it is, and while that’s not overwhelming, he’s been much better than Seguin.

The Bruins youngster has just one goal and three assists in 16 games this postseason. Boston is hoping he took notes of Kane’s play the last couple games and can use it against him.

    Is that a stonecutter logo on those jerseys or is it the Trinidad and Tobago jerseys from D2? Looking at hot Kane and Seguin’s stats in the Swiss league, it surprising Seguin had the down year. Kane was barely a point a game player while Seguin was almost a 2 point a game player.

      We’ll just say Seguin supports Brian Burke’s calls to make the sheets bigger.

        Montreal, Vancouver, any Quebec(not hockey related but on EI being slashed so people have to go to work)Riots. The country will collapsed if NHL goes on strike for a year. Prozac sales and suicide attempts doubled after the Canucks tanked in the first round. Have another donut thumbs down
