Video: Iginla’s first goal for Penguins

Apr 2, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

Playing in just his second game for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jarome Iginla got his first goal for his new club against Buffalo on Tuesday night, converting a Chris Kunitz pass on the power play to even the score at one:

Unfortunately for Iginla and Pittsburgh, his goal was the Pens’ lone highlight through the first two periods.

The Sabres got goals from Steve Ott, Cody Hodgson and a pair from Kevin Porter to take a commanding 4-1 lead into the second period, putting Pittsburgh’s 15-game winning streak in serious jeopardy.

    shoulda pulled vokoun after the wrap around goal…jerome just needs to score a couple more here in the third

    Hahahahahaha one of the worst teams in the league is going to break their win streak. With Crosby out could this be the downfall of the flightless birds?

      Kaleta made fools out of the Pens ! When things don’t go the Pens way I never seen a team lose it like they do !

        You’re right bud ! It’s been so long since they lost I forgot how to accept it ! Since you’re a Flyers fan, maybe you could help with that ! You know, because they lose a lot !

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:59 PM

        We got a 2 game streak going thats more than you now !

      • hockeywithdrawal - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:01 PM

        That’s awesome ! Brings the win total for the year up to what, 4 ! That’s truly amazing for them !

        the pens were due for a letdown. i actually thought the isles would beat them saturday.

    • hockeywithdrawal - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:55 PM

      It was 15 games in a row, idiot. You’re acting like you know hockey, so I’m assuming you know how rare and how good that is, right?

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:58 PM

      THE END

      • hockeywithdrawal - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:00 PM

        I can’t believe that even YOU lack the intelligence to know that 15 games is far too great for you to be shooting your mouth off.

        Oh, wait ! Yes I can !

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:03 PM

        Man you sound like your hurtin I’ll leave you be !

        Which is your way of saying you don’t actually have a comeback to the whole “We have a 15-win streak, your team’s two losses from elimination” thing, right?

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Apr 3, 2013 at 6:35 AM

        Did the commissioner had you this thing called the STANLEY CUP for a 15 game winning streak ? Is that a good enough comeback ?

    when “the great one” comes back, its all over son.

    • nicknyhc - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:36 PM

      Gretzky retired in ’99 bro

      • nicknyhc - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:40 PM

        ’99 was most likely also the year you were born….

  4. manchestermiracle - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:36 PM

    Pens not reacting well to being down three, taking multiple penalties and generally acting stupidly. Nice to see Iginla gets his first.

  5. 5hole26 - Apr 2, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    better stop worry about the franchise and worry about your awful rangers bro

    • nicknyhc - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:04 PM

      Sorry guy, but when you don’t know that “The Great One” is Wayne Gretzky you lose all credibility when it comes to talking hockey. Have fun on the bandwagon.

    Jdrew506 Don’t worry Crosby will be back for the playoffs!

  7. jdrew506 - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:07 PM

    Hey hockey I have been watching hockey since the early 80’s so yes i do think i know a little bit about the game. Never said 15 in a row wasnt a good streak just that its funny that they blew that streak to one of the worst teams in the league. And since you are so into streaks does it worry you that you might play the Islanders in the first round of the playoffs since I do believe the penguins have never beaten them in a playoff series.

    How’s Murray playing?

  9. norcalsportsknowledge - Apr 2, 2013 at 10:12 PM

    How’s Murray playing?

    • drone501 - Apr 3, 2013 at 12:17 AM

      murray is actually playing good defensive hockey, which is why he was brought in here. he also had a point on saturday,

  10. govtminion - Apr 2, 2013 at 11:16 PM

    Amusing that the Penguins streak ends against the humble Sabres, a few weeks after the Blackhawks had much the same happen against the awful Avalanche. You can’t take a night off in this league, for sure.

    • chanceoffleury1 - Apr 3, 2013 at 12:16 AM

      Honestly, I think most fans and players would agree that they’d rather lose to a bad team than a team that’s gaining on them. By losing to the Sabres they don’t lose any mental ground on Boston or Montreal or any other playoff teams. I mean, as bad as the Sabres record is, they’ve beat Boston, Montreal, Jersey, Toronto, Rangers, etc. Not like the rest of the east can point and laugh at the Pens. Most of them have lost to Buffalo, too!

  11. norcalsportsknowledge - Apr 3, 2013 at 12:57 AM

    Thanks. I miss watching Murray. Just wait until the playoffs, then his mean streak comes out.

  12. 5hole26 - Apr 3, 2013 at 6:00 AM

    soup can is better than gretsky and ur rangers are irrelevant. get off our bandwagon. u mad bro

    • nicknyhc - Apr 3, 2013 at 9:05 AM

      Your opinion is irrelevant because you’re 12 years old.

  13. 5hole26 - Apr 3, 2013 at 11:54 AM

    you mad bro? pens roll on while the irrelevant rangirls keep dropping in the standings. your lucky theyre playing the franchise tonight or your irrelevant team would never get the time of day for the game of the week. your welcome brah
