With Loui Eriksson sidelined indefinitely, this would be a great time for Jarome Iginla to step up his offensive game for the Boston Bruins.
Iginla has a goal and three assists in his last three games working with center David Krejci and winger Milan Lucic. That line has produced eighth goals, 17 assists and a plus-17 rating.
“It’s been longer than I would’ve liked, but it sure felt good to get it here and to get it at home and it being a tight game, and obviously it was a good bounce,” Iginla told the Boston media after the Bruins edge the San Jose Sharks 2-1.
“It wasn’t exactly how I envisioned it . . . but at this point you take anything or anytime; actually you take any of them, but it was a good bounce. It was a tough game and I thought as a group we got better after the first period. And San Jose is playing very well right now so it feels really good all around.”
