Wednesday was a whirlwind night in Boston.
Just when the Bruins thought they had acquired Flames legend Jarome Iginla in a trade, Calgary called them back and broke the news; Iginla was a Penguin, not a Bruin.
It’s one of the strangest situations NHL fans have seen in a very long time. Multiple reports throughout the night indicated that the Bruins were on the verge of acquiring Iginla, and those reports were only reinforced by the fact that the Bruins scratched defenseman Matt Bartkowski from their lineup, young Russian forward Alexander Khokhlachev was a very late scratch from the Providence Bruins’ lineup, and Iginla himself was scratched from the Flames’ lineup.
Throughout the course of the game, reporters in the TD Garden press box noted on twitter that Bruins’ front office and PR personnel were rushing around the ninth floor. And, as most reporters and fans know, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. There was clearly a fire in Boston;...

The Calgary Flames scratched Jarome Iginla from their lineup Wednesday night against Colorado amid trade speculation surrounding the longtime captain.
The 35-year-old Iginla, in his 16th season with the Flames, is in the final year of his contract. Calgary is 14th in the Western Conference and will likely miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Jarome Iginla is officially off the market. Hockey fans on the East Coast were up later than usual last night, waiting for the announcement that Iginla had been traded to the Boston Bruins. The rumors began swirling when Iginla was scratched from the Flames lineup on Wednesday night, implying that a deal was imminent. TSN’s Aaron Ward tweeted that the deal was done with Boston...
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. Of course, they’re professionals and will likely keep an even keel, but it...

Talk about a confusing night. I shut off my computer, and phone at 1:00 am on Wednesday, March 27th with the thought that Iginla to the Bruins was essentially completed. Conflicting reports had been surfacing all night on the Twitter-verse, but general consensus was that Iginla was indeed going to Boston. When I woke up this morning,...

Ron MacLean of HNIC chatted with Jarome Iginla today via satellite after his first game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Iginla discusses his first game with the Penguins and the trade process.
Goddamn. Jay Feaster is so incompetent at his job that now he's expanded business to Boston. Not only did he tell Chiarelli that the Bruins had Jarome Iginla, he also requested the Bruins sign that one-year contract with Matt Bartkowski so he'd be all contracted up for the Flames when the trade was finalized.
Matt Bartkowski confirmed his one-way contract was...
With all of the focus on the Jarome Iginla trade last night, this incredible fight between super heavy weights Brian McGrattan and Patrick Bordeleau has gone virtually unrecognized. Both of these guys may have forgotten what it’s like to win games on a regular basis, but they sure haven’t forgotten how to fight.
The Flames, minus Iginla, managed to squeak out a 4-3 win over...
Teammate Brooks Orpik blasted a puck off his face, sending him to the hospital. This is not how the Penguins wanted to celebrate the arrival of Jarome Iginla.
