Iginla doesn't need motivation, but some booing from the Boston crowd will jam him up. Could be a monster series from him. Speaking of the Bruins... What is more shocking: Milan Lucic stringing together enough words to make a sentence or Milan Lucic knowing who the Miami Heat are? [ Freak Show ] Crosby has been cleared to take off the jaw guard. Pic from Fansided. Finally, the Hurricanes are teasing everyone about their new uniforms:
