Iggy's Choice: Jarome Iginla settling in with Penguins as shunned Bruins await in Round 3

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Jarome Iginla will get a chance to spend some time in Boston in pursuit of the Stanley Cup after all.

The longtime Calgary Flames star waived his no-trade clause to join the Pittsburgh Penguins in March, choosing the Penguins over the Bruins just before the deadline.

The six-time All-Star says he expected to face Boston at some point in the post-season. Now the Bruins stand in Pittsburgh's way when the Eastern Conference finals begin on Saturday.

Iginla says his decision to play for the Penguins had nothing to do with not wanting to play for Boston and he doesn't expect it to be an issue during the best-of-seven series. Iginla has thrived in Pittsburgh and has four goals and eight assists so far in the playoffs.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
