Stars' Seguin: 'I'm sick of losing'

The frustration in Tyler Seguin's voice was palpable after the Dallas Stars' 12th loss in 26 games this season.

"I'm just sick of losing," Seguin told reporters after his club came out on the wrong end of a 5-2 decision with the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday. 

"There's no excuse for it. Losing sucks. The taste of losing is terrible. So, we're going to move on and go home. Gotta be ready for a huge tilt there Saturday against the Canadiens."

The 22-year-old appears to be doing his part to help the Stars succeed. Seguin leads the NHL in goals with 19, ranks second in total scoring with 32 points, and even boasts a plus-3 rating, for those who value that particular stat.

The issue, he contends, is team defense and the inability to hold on to the puck.

"It's turnovers and it's our coverage in our own end," Seguin explained. " ... It starts with our club, our team, the way we're collapsing in our own zone, the way we're competing, they way we're having turnovers. 

"We have to press the reset button here," he added. "It's still a long year, but we definitely dug ourselves a hole."

With the loss, the Stars remain in the basement of the Central Division, seven points out of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference. As he mentioned, Dallas's next opportunity to turn things around is Saturday against Montreal, a team Seguin is all too familiar with after his time with the Boston Bruins.
