The two prominent forwards that the Pittsburgh Penguins snatched from the Boston Bruins around trade deadline time won’t even be in the desperate team’s top-six in Game 3 on Wednesday. At least not to start things out.
Iginla has been struggling against the team he spurned. He has a -3 rating and zero points in two games against Boston and hasn’t had a point in his last three games overall. He’s only scored in one game (a two-goal performance) in his last six playoff contests.
It probably wouldn’t be fair to call him a bust, however, as he still has almost as many points (12) as playoff games played (13) in 2013.
Still, it’s likely that Bruins fans will poke some fun, especially if Boston moves a 2-0 series lead to 3-0 tonight.
(Bennett, 21, replaces Jussi Jokinen in the lineup, by the way.)
