Jarome Iginla admitted that he had allowed himself to feel the exhilaration of scoring a goal for just a quick second when his soft shot trickled past Ryan Miller in Buffalo on Wednesday night. It would have ended an eight-game goal-less drought to start his Bruins career but instead the goal was awarded to Milan Lucic for re-directing the puck closer to the Sabres net. “It was maybe [for] a second and a half but it was good” said a smiling Iginla. “I had ‘the feeling.’ I remember what it felt like to [score]…to feel for a second like oh it went in.” Still that little feeling of blissful scoring confidence was perhaps all he needed.

Claude Julien Discusses Bruins’ 2-1 Win Over Sharks with Jamie Erdahl (Video)

Terry O’Reilly Recounts Time With Bruins During His Number Retirement Ceremony on Throwback Thursday (Video)

Terry O’Reilly is a classic example of an enforcer in the NHL. The former Bruins winger logged more than 200 penalty minutes in five consecutive seasons, and his rough and tough style of play earned him the nickname “Bloody O’Reilly” in the press. In 14 seasons with the Bruins, O’Reilly tallied 204 goals, highlighted by his 29-goal, 90-point season in 1977-78. The B’s...
