Iginla Can Only Watch The Shootout

from Scott Cruickshank of Flames Insider,

Jarome Iginla isn’t Wayne Gretzky, Brent Sutter isn’t Marc Crawford, and this wasn’t the 1998 Olympics . . . but how in tarnation do you leave the team’s—heck, the league’s—hottest gunner on the bench for the shootout?

Iginla, thanks to his dramatic draining of a last-minute shot (which forced the extra period and ensuing shootout) has 12 goals in his last 10 games. Not 12 points. But 12 goals. No one has, as they say, been “feeling it” more than No. 12.

And the Flames captain doesn’t merit a spin in the shootout Monday night at the Honda Center?
