As the Pittsburgh Penguins were putting the finishing touches on their 15th consecutive win Saturday afternoon, the Bruins were putting the finishing touches on arguably their worst showing of the season. And we’re all supposed to be shocked and dismayed that Jarome Iginla picked the Pens over the B’s? The Bruins, despite coming off their final two-day break this season, sleepwalked through the first and second periods on Saturday en route to a 3-1 loss to the Flyers. That’s the same Flyers team, mind you, that the Bruins had defeated in 11 of their last 13 meetings, including the playoffs. It’s also the same Flyers team that came in riding a four-game losing streak. It was the same Flyers team that sits 14th in the Eastern Conference.

It’s been a long two days since the Bruins last played, and there was no shortage of drama during that time. After blowing late leads against the Montreal Canadiens and losing out on the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes, the Bruins would be well within their rights to come out angry Saturday in Philadelphia.

Bruins Focused on Players on Team, Moving on After Missing Out on Jarome Iginla (Video)

The Bruins thought they had Jarome Iginla — then they didn’t. After losing out on the longtime Calgary captain to the Pittsburgh Penguins — who had also previously acquired Brenden Morrow and Doug Murray — suggesting it’s panic time for the Bruins might not be too far off the mark.

Bruins Lose Out on Jarome Iginla, Now Look to Other Potential Trade Targets

By Mitch Cole (@DirtyWaterBuzz) Getty Images Wednesday was a whirlwind night in Boston.

The schedule sped up, and games have been jam packed into the weeks. Injuries have plagued the team, causing many different guys to suit up and play. The B's "got" Jarome Iginla, and then didn't. And yet through all of...

What Is Calgary’s End Game?

The Calgary Flames are not a very good team.  They have the second worst record in the West Conference.  Their future doesn't look any better as most of their key players are aging and approaching free agency.  They have few young players with significant potential to take their place.

Life After Iginla: What Does Boston Do Now?
