It Was A Watershed Night In Boston, With The Bruins Losing A High-Scoring Game To The Canadiens In A Shootout, And Further Losing The Battle For Jarome Iginla To The Already Loaded Penguins.
Which news stung more, that the Canadiens dumped the Bruins in a shootout for the win and lead in the division, or that Jarome Iginla dumped the Bruins in favor of the Penguins?
- So close? Not apparently. Iginla opted for Pittsburgh in the end. [BostonGlobe]
- The Bruins were "dissed and dismissed" once Pittsburgh made an offer, and are left chasing a loaded Penguins team. [WEEI]
- The deal would have cost Boston Matt Bartkowski, Alexander Khokhlachev, and a first-round pick. [BostonGlobe]
- Back to the game... they were down two, then up two, and fell behind AGAIN (stop me if you've heard this) in the third period. Carey Price was pulled in favor of Peter Budaj. [PatriotLedger]
- Michael Ryder was first star... Torey Krug looked fine, and the Bruins slogged back from a 2 goal deficit only to blow the lead in the third. [ESPN]
- Well, maybe the game wasn't all bad. The scoring floodgates gates opened... [WBZ,CBSLocal]
- It did seem, finally, that the passion and effort were there for the Bruins. Facing the Habs will to that sometimes. [BostonHerald]
- And hang on, there is still very probably "a significant player" on the way. [WEEI]
- I'll leave you with this last thought on the Iginla situation... [@bruinshockeynow]
- ... and a place to talk it out until you feel better. See you there! [StanleyCupOfChowder]
- Don't forget Cuts For A Cause on April Fool's Day, it should be fun. [Bruins.NHL.com]
