After being a healthy scratch for the first two rounds of the 2011 NHL Playoffs, Seguin was put into the lineup to start round 3, after Patrice Bergeron sustained a mild concussion. Seguin scored a goal and added an assist in his first game, and followed that up with 2 goals and 2 assists in the second. He became the first teenager to score 4 points in a NHL playoff game since Trevor Linden in 1989. On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins captured the Stanley Cup, winning the series 4-3, and 4-0 in Game 7.
I'd say he was a factor.
Every player contributed to the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup. That's why they won. They played as a unified team. One can also make the argument that Shawn Thornton was a factor.
So you are right that I was wrong to state that "he was not a factor". I probably should have stated that he was not the main reason that the Bruins won the Cup.
