Iginla-Krejci-Lucic line steals the Subbans’ show

If you’re the type of person who overreacts to preseason sporting events, then the Boston Bruins’ 6-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens provides evidence that Jarome Iginla could be a great replacement for Nathan Horton.

Iginla scored two goals, David Krejci had a tally of his own and Milan Lucic piled up three assists to steal the show from the P.K. Subban vs. Malcolm Subban storyline on Monday. (The hockey should probably come to a consensus regarding a nickname for the Iginla-Krejci-Lucic line soon …)

That trio combined for 10 shots on goal tonight, so they were quite the force even when the puck wasn’t hitting the net.

Going back to the Subbans, P.K. scored a goal, but not against his younger brother. Malcolm stopped all of the 12 shots he faced, with his only blemish being a delay of game penalty when he handled the puck outside the dreaded trapezoid area.

It’s not advisable to put too much stock in exhibition games in which people either aren’t playing at all or aren’t playing with regular season urgency, yet one can understand Bruins fans if they’re a little excited about what they just saw.

    KIL line. How is this up for debate?

    I’d like to third KIL line.

    B’s looked pretty damn good! Nice chemistry right from the get go. Krejci seems to have picked right up were he left off and Subban looked like he had some poise in his first game. Iginla is not shy about firing the puck, which the Bruins power play needs.

    Let’s go Bruins!

    I too, vote for the KIL Line.

    I was there live! It was awesome!

    KIL is a lot better than LicK , thank you

    KIlL line indeed, here I thought I was being uniquely creative when I thought of it looking at the headline.

    Unless you prefer a line of that ILK.

    Eh, KIL is probably better.

    Go Bs!

    Iginla is quick with the puck. He’ll help the power play.

    Nice to see Krug pick up where he left off. He looks like he should be a top 4 defenseman, but will probably come in after Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuck, and McQuaid.
