An Odd And Confused Ending To A Trade Deal With Calgary For Jarome Iginla Is In The Rear-View Mirror. And We Are Left Clutching Our Handkerchiefs And Murmuring "Tomorrow Is Another Matinee."

Dave Sandford

<p><b> Let's have one last hellish flashback, shall we? There really isn't much else in the news today! </b></p>

<ul>

<li> A haggard looking Peter Chiarelli reiterated the timeline and facts surrounding the no-go with Jarome Iginla and the Flames. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/boston/nhl/story/_/id/9108806/jarome-iginla-calgary-flames-turned-trade-boston-bruins">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> There are other options for "Peter the Patient" that don't involve overcompensation. After all, the Penguins are not invincible as long as they have Marc-Andre Fleury in net... [<a href="http://nhl.si.com/2013/03/28/what-now-for-the-bruins-as-penguins-keep-beating-them-to-the-trade-punch/">SportsIllustrated</a>]</li>

<li> Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe, Martin St. Louis... The Bruins still have options. [<a href="http://nesn.com/2013/03/jaromir-jagr-ryan-clowe-martin-st-louis-headline-list-of-potential-options-for-bruins-as-trade-deadline-approaches/">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> Besides, what the Bruins should be seeking is a defenseman. [<a href="http://www.masslive.com/bruins/index.ssf/2013/03/forget_about_jarome_iginla_boston_bruins_need_a_defenseman_more.html">MassLive</a>]</li>

<li> With apologies to Bob Marley, "No Iginla, No Cry." [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2013/03/28/moving-on-no-iginla-no-cry/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Shawn Thornton spoke about the failed deal, and about the Habs game. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/2013/03/mis_deal_try_again_bruins">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> And on a more lighthearted note... the Bruins have cancelled Jarome Iginla Bobblehead Night at TD Garden. [<a href="https://twitter.com/GlobeKPD/status/317368115182833665">@GlobeKPD</a>]</li>

<li> Former teammate Marc Savard wished Iginla well, and thinks Jagr and David Krejci would make magic together. [<a href="https://twitter.com/MSavvy91/status/317266550774194176">@MSavvy91</a>]</li>

<li> "C'Mon, Ref!" features a question about the Aaron Johnson delay of game penalty. [<a href="http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/kerry_fraser/?id=419327">TSN</a>]</li>

<li> Greg Wyshynski on lack of accountability regarding penalties meted out immediately before shootouts. [<a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/john-tavares-common-sense-rules-change-shootout-132857860--nhl.html;_ylt=AikLEhnijjYRJr4n1YA9eUeRbcp_;_ylu=X3oDMTE5ZGR1ZmhhBG1pdANCbG9ncyBJbmRleARwb3MDMTAEc2VjA01lZGlhQmxvZ0luZGV4;_ylg=X3oDMTFpMm9iMzh1BGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANibG9nBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25z;_ylv=3">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Here's an odd Dougie Hamilton photochop. [<a href="https://twitter.com/bruinshockeynow/status/317414544278441984/photo/1">@bruinshockeynow</a>]</li>

</ul>

<p><b> And back to business... the Boston Bruins will play the Philadelphia Flyers in Philadelphia in a 1pm matinee on Saturday. </b></p>

<ul>

<li> The injury-riddled Flyers (with former Bruin Mike Knuble) may miss out on the playoffs, but cannot be counted out. [<a href="http://bruins.nhl.com/club/preview.htm?id=2012020506">Bruins.NHL</a>]</li>
