Steve Kampfer was set to play his first game at Joe Louis Arena as a pro and had bought tickets for about 40 family and friends. But his homecoming was ruined when the Bruins decided to scratch him in favor of Tyler Seguin (who did score a goal). I understand that this is the way sports work, but that was just cold. If I were a coach I would think the hometown kid would be fired up and play a great game.
